Maya Vander has always been forthcoming about her family life. On Selling Sunset season 4, the realtor shared the news that she and her husband were expecting their third child, a baby boy to be named Mason.
Sadly, the fan-favorite Oppenheim Group member experienced a heartbreaking setback in December 2021. "Yesterday was the hardest day of my life," she wrote on Instagram. "I had a stillbirth at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I'll be part of the statistics."
In a lengthy caption alongside a photo of a memory box, the realtor detailed her grief, which prompted outpours of love and support in the comments section. Fans of the Netflix hit are typically accustomed to tense relationships and a heavy dose of drama, but everyone seemed to gravitate towards Maya's story.

"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."
Fans got a glimpse into Maya's home life, as she shared her pregnancy journeys on previous seasons and on her social media pages. During the debut season of Selling Sunset, she was even vulnerable enough to admit her struggle to get pregnant and revealed that she previously suffered two miscarriages. Maya and her husband share 2-year-old Aiden and 1-year-old Elle.
She concluded the devastating message with, "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. You will always be in our heart baby Mason."
