Selling Sunset star, Maya Vander, has given birth to a baby girl. The reality star welcomed her ‘rainbow baby’ earlier this month after keeping her pregnancy news private.

The mum explained that she didn’t want to tell the public about her pregnancy news after she suffered a harrowing loss last year. Vander’s son was stillborn in 2022.

She confirmed the arrival of her baby girl this month and decided to call her Emma.

Alongside a photo of her cradling the newborn, the mum wrote, “Welcome to the world Emma Reign! My rainbow baby!”

She said the last nine months were incredibly tough for her, especially after suffering such a devastating loss before this pregnancy.

“This was a long 9 months as I kept my pregnancy as quiet as possible from social media. I gave birth a few days ago and words can not express my sense of relief and happiness!”

Maya praised her doctors for supporting her through every step of her pregnancy, as well as her labour.

“Thank you to the amazing nurses at Baptist Hospital. I will forever be grateful.”

The mum explained that she had to wear a mask because she had a cold when she went into labour.

“Yes I’m wearing a mask because of course, I had the worst cold, but I made it to push a baby with a full stuffy nose.”

Vander has two other children with her husband; their son Aiden and daughter Ella.
