The Selling Sunset star took to social media a few hours ago to share the devastating news about the death of baby Mason. She posted a photo of a box containing baby clothing and revealed that a routine checkup with her doctor yesterday turned out to be her worst nightmare.
“Yesterday was the hardest day of my life. I had a stillbirth at 38 weeks,” wrote Maya on her Instagram page. “I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics.”
She explained, “Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box… I do not wish this on anyone. What was a regular weekly checkup turned into a nightmare that I never imagine will happen to me.”
Maya made it known that she decided to share the sad news with the world to avoid any painful questions about her pregnancy going forward.
“Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I’ll have to post about this and avoid the ‘when is your due date.’ question,” said Maya. Before ending her short post, the heartbroken mama shared some sweet words for her baby boy.
“You will always be in our heart baby Mason,” said Maya.
