The mom-of-two - who revealed on season four of the Netflix show that she was expecting her third child - took to Instagram on Friday to tell fans that Thursday "was the hardest day" of her life. "I had a stillbirth at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics," she emotionally shared.

"Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box… I do not wish this on anyone," she continued.
"What was a regular weekly checkup turned into a nightmare that I never imagined would happen to me."

Alongside a picture of the memory box, she revealed that she was expecting a baby boy whom they have named Mason.
She added: "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."
Maya shared the devastating news with fans
"This is unimaginable. It’s hard to find words. My heart aches for you and your family. You are surrounded by so much love. Here for you for absolutely anything you need," commented Chrishell as Mary Fitzgerald added: "My heart is breaking for you babe. Sending you prayers, love, and strength."
"Maya I love you so much," shared Heather as Vanessa Villela wrote: "I'm so sorry Maya! I love you very much and I’m here for you."
She was 38 weeks pregnant
Maya is also mom to daughter Elle, 19 months, and son Aiden, two, with her husband.
