‘Bachelor’ Alum Shayne Lamas and Nik Richie’s Son Lyon — His First Pic!
Remember Shayne Lamas, the winner of Matt Grant’s season of The Bachelor? Her relationship with Matt might not have worked out, but it did with husband Nik Richie, and now, their family has officially expanded. After a long battle to bring their second child into the world, Shayne and Nik welcomed son Lyon on July 4, and now we have his first official photo!
Spoiler alert: This is one cute baby, and he’s making a pretty grand entrance. Lyon was featured on the cover of Closer Weekly with his grandpa, actor Lorenzo Lamas. The story of his conception is pretty interesting, since Lorenzo’s wife (and Shayne’s stepmom) served as the surrogate and carried Lyon for Shayne and Nik.
In 2014, when Shayne and Nik first began trying to conceive, Shayne suffered from an ectopic pregnancy that resulted in a miscarriage that almost killed her — pretty scary stuff. It’s so sweet that her dad's wife, 29-year-old Shawna Craig, was willing to step in and carry their child!
When Lyon was born in July, Shayne shared a photo of herself, her daughter Press, and Lyon all cuddled up, but his face was hidden. This is the first time we get to see what Lyon looks like, and he’s beautiful, just as we suspected.
If there’s one thing Lyon won’t doubt growing up, it’s how much his family loves him. It’s obvious they share an incredibly close and special bond with each other.
Congrats on the precious bundle of joy, Shayne and Nik! We need more pics ASAP.
