I’m writing this to say thank you, to let you know how truly blessed I am to be your father. You brought meaning to your parent’s life in a way you’ll never know and you’ll always be in our hearts and thoughts.
I named you Rex Jagger, R.J. Even before you were born you had a name, a family, and a life ready for the taking. I’m realizing that life doesn’t always work out the way you imagine. I’m sorry.
God has a plan for us all. He gave me an amazing son who will always watch over our family. You saved your mother’s life with your passing and I will never forget how much this means to me, R.J. In family, we sacrifice for each other. You gave your life for us. You showed me how to love.
I need you to know that I held you, spoke to you, kissed you and that you’ll be remembered. You are perfect. You will always be my son. I’m proud of you, always. I love you, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie.
OMG.. That is the sweetest and saddest thing ever!! So sorry for your loss, thanks for sharing. Peace and Love to you and yours!!
This is the sweetest thing I ever read. God bless you and your family in this horrible time. You and your family now have a beautiful angel watching over you guys. RIP R.J.
I’m so proud of you Nik. Family should always come first. People dispose (abort) for the smallest inconvenience. Its easy to forget how hard and badly other women and family want a child of their own. God bless you and your family.
God bless your sons soul. Godspeed to your families healing.
I am so sorry. i know your pain and loss. i too lost a child. my daughter was born at 24 weeks and I held her as she took her last breath. its a pain no parent should ever go through. much love to your family.
I’m speechless, incredibly sorry for your and Shayne’s loss. Beautifully written letter, Nik; what a wonderful husband and father you are. RIP R.J
Beautiful words. So sorry to read this
That was beautiful…. Thank you for sharing that with us. May god continue to bless your family
So sorry for your loss. May he rip and watch over you guys.
Prayers are with you and your family. This was the saddest/sweetest letter ever. Nik, keep your thoughts positive. You have really proven to be a wonderful husband and father throughout this horrible time. Lots of love to you and your family. So sorry for your loss. No one ever deserves what you and your family are going through. God Bless to you all.
you’re the man. stay dirty and god bless bud light lime.
I have no words for this Utterly Beautiful beyond words.. Still praying for you and family. Will now include sweet baby boy..
Today, celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing. I’ve experienced a death in my life that saved my life. Choose happiness everyday. This is how you honor someone that gave their life so you could live.
Heartbreaking……just so sad for you all.
Karma is a bitch, ay? I don’t feel sorry for nik one bit.
What kind of router do you use to get such a strong signal in a basement appt?
You are disgusting. No matter how much I hate or loathe somebody, I would never wish the death of a child upon them. You are no better than Mr. Richie; in fact, you are much worse in my opinion. There’s a special place in hell for you my dear.
That’s y you hide your name coward ..how does your saying that make u any better than him because you don’t like what he writes ,but yet your contradicting your thoughts by trolloing his site daily !
Karma is not the one that does this, it is called life. Nik chose to see the blessing from the tragedy give the man a break for God’s sake.
You are an asshole. Karma is a bitch & will get your ass!
Well you don’t have to come to sites. You sur, are a c*nt.
How did I know some dumb cunt was going to come in here guns blazing with the ol’ “Karma is a bitch” line?
Congratulations, you’re a fucking cliche. You can blame Karma for how shitty your life turned out.
Literally the same thing I was thinking, karma is a bitch and doesn’t want a child to suffer in your care HA. You’re a disgusting human being Nik Richie.
This letter is beautiful yet heartbreaking at the same time. I am so very sorry for your family’s loss, I know what it’s like to lose a child and it’s the worst possible thing for anyone to expierence, you are truly blessed that your beautiful wife is alive and healthy she definitely has a little guardian angel watching over her. May your little man rest in peace you will all be reunited one day but just know he will be with you always <3 thanks for sharing your letting with us, just stay positive for eachother xoxoxo
This made me cry. Nik i wish you and your family well and healing. Your right your lil man is in heaven.
I am so sorry yet so thankful your wife is ok. Press will have to keep you double busy for a while which I’m sure she will. God bless your family. It’s a miracle and no matter what your site is ppl have made it famous and need to deal w that. Ppl who wish tragedy upon others are worse than all. You will all pull thru this stronger ppl. More appreciative and better BC of it.
Thank you for humanizing your unborn child- on behalf on someone who has had to hold & bury 3 unborn miscarried babies of my own. Dont ever let anyone make you think it’s taboo to grieve and acknowledge your baby – it was a human being and your child no matter what stage and age of life it was at. I have volunteered for over 10 years in making items (crocheted baby stuff, memory boxes, even tiny caskets) for hospitals in cases like yours- Im grateful someone reached out to you to help you make whatever lil memories you could with what I am sure was the gorgeous lil boy you always wanted. It is the most saddest yet beautiful experience to hold a unborn child- I am so sorry you know this pain. God Bless Rex and thank you for being a great father to him.
I am sorry for your loss;( I wish shayne a speedy recovery! God bless you and your family
Such a heartwarming and beautiful tribute to your son, it brought me to tears. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family..god be with you, always.
Dearest Lamas-Richie Family:
Your letter was written from the heart and from a depth that most never master in a lifetime. For the simpleton, “karma quoters” that sit behind a computer screen flinging hate and judgement…. We can only embrace you with compassion hoping one day you will see the errors of your limited ways.
For you Nik, Shayne and Press… The next few months, weeks, days and hours will reveal your true strengths, love and respect for each other. Shut out all else. This is a time to reflect, mend your bodies and embrace your family and it’s purpose.
I know our note is one amoung a miriade of well wishes… Just hope you have family and friends close to you, that really know you to provide the support and care you will need while all three of you are on the mend.
Never forget, you guys have been blessed thru tragedy no matter how harsh that sounds. You have the opportunity to remember why you are in love, why you are a family and why you will go on.
Keep touching lives.
You are in our prayers.
The ladies of Take it to 2
That hit me hard. This little angle could only give you a short visit, until you meet again. But what he left you with was the ability to love more deeply for the rest of your days. What a gift he gave.
Much Love, Drea
That is amazing. It’s tragic but as you said God has a plan and RJ saved your wife’s life, and in doing so probably provided his sister Press with stronger parents that love each other and do not take for granted the blessing of family. I wish you and Shayne the best and all the happiness on earth and I hope she can get through this with your help and your love.
RIP I’m so sorry nik, but I am glad you are being so strong and positive in this trying time.
I’m very sorry nik
So beautiful Nik. God is waiting to reunite your souls someday and you will get to see RJ again. Lots of love to you and Shayne. You’re in my prayers.
That broke my heart. Stay strong, Nik.
Prayers for the whole family.
Bless his sweet little soul.
Deepest apologies on your loss and Shayne’s continued struggles. I feel as though, you both now know how truly precious life is. God bless you.
Nik so so sorry for your loss! Prayers are with you and your family
My beautiful wife and I also went thru this tragedy a long time ago. It also broke my heart. Stay strong bro.
That was one of the sweetest and saddest things I ever read ….im sorry for both of you I hope u will find some comfort in your daughter. Iam a parent myself and I know how hard it is to loose a child.prayers for you family
Im so deeply sorry you guys had to go through this. My hubbie and I went through something very similar 15 years ago. We lost our baby at 20 weeks and also held her and named her thanks to the sisters at the hospital. At the time it happened I was angry, I didnt want to see the baby and refused. The sister kept insisting to me to try and finally something inside me just gave. I cant tell you how many times now I was thankful that sister kept insisting. I would have hated myself if I didnt hold her and kiss her and say goodbye. You did the right thing Nik and it was so hard to do. My heart goes out to your wife as her condition was more serious than mine. I will keep you both in my prayers that you will find strength in each other to go through this difficult time. Big hugs to you both.
Absolutely beautiful. Still praying for all of you. There’s still a long emotional road ahead.
No parent should have to bury their child. My heart and prayers go out to you and shayne. Rex is in heaven and he is perfect in mind, body and spirit.
Im so sorry for your loss. I cant imagine how it feels to lose a child. Is Shayne doing any better?
There are truly no words. Thank you for sharing your story. It brings so much more understanding to light. You are a very strong individual and it is very lovely to see how much you are dedicated to Shayne, Press and angel baby R.J… Lots of light & love from Indiana.
Nik, I just wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son, I know how excited you were to be having another child. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your beautiful family at this hard time, you’re a great man and not many people have had the luxury of actually speaking to you and getting to know you. There is far more to who you are than “thedirty” your a great dad and great husband (everyone makes mistakes) the good thing is you have never left Shaynes side and I believe you never will. Keep your head up and keep your ladies close, you now have an amazing little Angel watching over you guys.
-With love from Cincinnati <3
As a father of a little boy who is my world and a husband who has had to support his wife while she has miscarried on 4 different occasions, my heart goes out to you both. Your situation is much different than mine but know that there is an angel named Rex that will be waiting to greet you both one day at heavens gates. Whether you and Shayne are believers or Christians or not you are both in my prayers and I got nothing but love you both and I hope the pain ends soon and the healing is miraculous.
We dont always understand why things happen, however the important part is we have our hearts open to learn the life lessons. It sounds to me, you have done this. Your letter was heartbreaking and heart felt. You are a special man to do the things you’ve done and to have gone through what you recently have. May you continue to be that special man, and continue to be the rock for your beautiful family. We all continue to pray, uplift, and send positive energy your way. I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your son. My condolences to you and your family. ((((((Huge hugs to all of you))))))))
Nick I feel for u and ur family. I’m so sorry u are going threw this, but don’t u think some things should be kept within the family and not posted on the internet. I understand it is ur choice, but this is a poor decision on ur part. Sorry, this is something that should be discussed within ur family..I’m sure u have plenty of family members on both sides that support you guys.. Taking pictures of ur poor wife at this time in the hospital and posting pictures is just sad and tacky. Sorry nothing seams right about it.
People decide how they deal with personal loss in their own terms. This letter he wrote clearly is a step toward his healing and coming to terms with his loss. Just because it doesn’t meet your standards, it does not mean it is wrong. And to criticize someone at a difficult time, is just so wrong…now, about you, there is something that doesn’t “seem right” about you. Know what sympathy is? Empathy? Respect?
God bless you guys and keep you in His light!! Shayne will be just fine!! She will be home with you’re daughter soon!! Have faith!! And if you choose to have more children in the future, there are plenty out there that would be lucky to have you as parents!!! And if you choose not too, you have a perfect daughter to keep you busy and your heart full!! Rip lil Rex!!
And to the haters!! STFU!! NO ONE deserves this!!
The people he rips on for the past few years didn’t deserve it either. I don;t see a distinction between him destroying people’s lives and people calling him out for it.
There is a force in this world. You cant be a douchebag to complete strangers for a living without something bad attaching itself to you.
Enjoy what you created, Nik.
I’m not a hater. I’m a realist. Nik is a piece of shit and doesn;t deserve a child.
You have a beautiful soul.
God bless lil angel RJ
You, Shayne and Press just have an angel in your family now
I should have worn waterproof mascara today. I never imagined I would need it reading tabrag or thedirty, though. You wrote a beautiful letter in remembrance of your son. God bless.
Omg… tearing up. I lost a baby once too. Its hard we can just pray they are in a wonderful place with our past on loved ones to take care of them until our time. <3
I read your letter to your son on another news feed. I did not know who you were…only the son-in-law to Lorenzo Lamas. (Who was a heartthrob in my day.) So I googled your name and read your profile. Your letter was deeply moving and honest. Although I do not know you I feel at my age I am qualified to know when something comes from the heart. I would like to offer you and your family my deepest sympathy for your loss. I will be praying for the recovery of your beautiful wife. God is good and we do not always understand why bad things happen. But he will see you and your family through this. And, I fully believe your sweet angel will be watching over you and your family for the rest of your lives. I also believe you will see him again and that will be a wonderful day for both of you. Call me corny…I am just an old southern lady that fully believes that there is something good in most people. And your letter to your baby was so beautiful. Bless your heart and may God comfort you and give you peace.
I’ll keep this short. Despite all the sh*tty things you day on your website, no one should have to go through this.
As someone who lost a baby two years ago, I feel your pain. This letter tore at my heart. My daughter would have been two in may and not a day goes past that I don’t think of her. It’s hard and the pain will never go away but you will get stronger.
Nik you are a real man.
Nothing “seams” right, especially your spelling and grammar. If this is the outlet one wants to use to heal, then by all means, let him. Everyone grieves in their own way . Just because it doesn’t meet your standards does not mean it’s wrong. Really, what makes you think that you are important enough in the world that your opinion matters? Get over yourself.
Nik, I truly feel for you having gone through the same ordeal. It’s tough and you will get through it, together with your family. God bless you my man.
Who called the grammar police.. Lol. Don’t really care what u say.. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Get over YOURSELF….hope I spelt everything rite tootaloo doll
Stay positive, live every day like it could be your last.
I never comment on websites like this but your post is so sincere and heartbreaking I felt compelled to write. Wishing Shayne a speedy recovery and hoping your family gets the privacy you deserve during this horrendous time.
Love from the U.K
Nik, I’m very sorry for your loss and wish Shayne a full recovery!
Beautifully written Nik. I know you and Shayne would have given this child the world. It’s such a tragedy people who want children so badly and would give them a good life go through these things . I wish Shayne a quick recovery and pray that someday you will be able to have a healthy baby in the future.
In tears~ I am so sorry for your family. I truly appreciate you sharing your life with us. God Bless the Lamas-Richie Family and RIP sweet angel RJ.
My wife nearly passed while being pregnant. Doctors could not figure out what was happening but it was getting hard for her to breathe. After a couple of days, the doctors induced a coma to rest her body. She was put on a resporater for over 3 weeks. As the doctors continued to try diffrent meds to find out something, my son mason surcomed to all the meds and passed away. He was six months in her belly. In Texas u r required to have a birth/death certificate if the child is born after the second tri mester. To make a long story short, my wife ended up not having an enzime in her blood that would take oxygen to the baby. So the amniotic sac was leaking in to my wifes lungs. It was a nurse practioner that finally figured the problem out. My wife was in icu for over a month, our son was born a couple days after leaving hospital, but we were already aware that his heart wasn’t beating anymore. This caused me and my wife to really become close and I grew up a little faster then I wanted to. I can proudly say that we have just celebrated our 11tj anniversary and are going strong. I hope this has the same effect on Ur life and relationship. Love the site and I never saw how Ur wife got sick.
So sorry for your loss this was gods plan you will meet him with the help of god. God is the greatest. The angels tickled him on his way to heaven. Think positive be strong for your wife. Hope she will fully recover soon she is beautiful you will be stronger getting through this.
Brought tears to my eyes. God bless you and your family. So sorry you had to go through this. May time heal. xo.
Such heartfelt words. May God guide you gently through the next few months. My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
God bless you and your family, Nik. I am sorry you had to go through this.
TRUST THAT…angels are very, very real and ALWAYS watch over you especially in a situation like this. I read this letter earlier on TMZ and could not even see my eyes were flooded with tears….I pray for Shayne daily, this will make your bond unbreakable because you stepped up and got revealed through a loss what love is, my sister lost her two year old from SIDS on Mother’s Day, why babies are taken is a mystery some say God decided to save them from a painful world (not to say you would have given him a painful life) but what the world can do (as in unforeseen tragedies), who knows…the important thing is to learn about love, the message, the meaning, which equals an awakening, you never see or live the same way again. I recently got enlightened myself, hard to live in a human body after that.
I am so sorry for your loss of baby rex! I am devestated for the both of you and also sweet press!! I am praying for shayne and I know she will over come this horrible ordeal stronger then before. This will not beat of over come either of you this is gods way of telling you something. Your marriage will be stronger then before because the bond you will form. From tragedy comes triumph. I heard “in the arms of the angels” today after I read your letter to rex and cried for your family. You will all be okay. God bless shayne,press,rex,and also you. Be strong for your girls they need you always. Xo
Nik, blessings to you and your family.
I am just a stranger to you and your family but I having been praying for your entire family since I heard this tragic news. You will be with your perfect son one day. You will be a family again. I am truly sorry for y’all’s loss and Shanes health. May God be with you for the rest of y’all’s journey.
So sorry to u and your beautiful wife!! I am 30 years old and two months pregant and after I give birth would be more than happy to carry a child for you and your wife. Once again my deepest condolonces.
too cute …and soo sorry 4 your fam lost..i hope Shayne has a full recovery …keep us posted .
im glad to be a fan of you and your wife and to c that u are more then just the dirty.
I hope Shayne makes a full recovery … so sorry for your loss… just can’t imagine…. no one deserves to feel that kind of pain and loss…
Sorry for the loss, but the fact that you still carry on with this disgusting site and claim to care so much about an unborn child…how about all those people that you slander and possibly destroy lives just by posting what some loser sends to you and you don’t even know if it’s true. You’re child was clearly saved a lifetime of pain.
That was beautiful, Nik. I didn’t realize there were husbands like this in the world. What an amazing way to honor your child, and move forward as a family
Stay strong Nik, Shayne & family. I am praying for you all
DAMN YOU I cant stop crying!
What a beautiful tribute to your first son. Keep strong. You, your wife, and daughter are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.
As an expecting father and a man who has lost a child in the womb, you have not only my sympathy, but true empathy. RIP. May your son and mine play among the clouds.
What a beautiful letter, it made me cry. So glad Shayne is home and doing better, what that poor girl went through, I pray for strength and complete healing for her body and heart. It will take time, but you both have each other and your beautiful daughter, while you heal Shayne and Nic.
How heartbreaking. You, Shayne and your beautiful girl are in my thoughts. I can’t imagine your grief, but I hope you can find peace and solace through all of this. Sending wishes for love and peace to you and your family.
Beautiful picture. Rest in peace Rj. Still praying for you and your family. I hope you’re home soon.
Nik, Shayne, and Press,
My condolences to you–so terribly sorry for your loss. Nik, your letter to your son is heart-wrenching, and it truly made me see the love you had for your son. I have actually always been a fan of Shayne, and through her I knew more about you. I was one of the people that would comment on her instagram about how precious Press was, and that baby number 2 needed to come, because it would be beautiful. I am glad you were able to hold your beautiful baby boy. I really pray for Shayne’s recovery, as well as for yours.
“They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.” ~ Williams Penn
Beautiful letter Nik, may he RIP
That was super touching. Again sorry for your loss. Get well soon Shayne !
So sorry for your lose. You have proven yourself to be a good husband to your wife and father to your children. Although tragic you found a way to make a tragedy a beautiful sentiment to your son and family. It brought me to tears since I’m a little further along then Shayne and could not imagine what you are going through. Your ability to stay strong is truly admirable. Your son knew you held him that day. I hope for a quick recovery for Shayne. God bless you and your family.
“You have proven yourself to be a good husband to your wife and father to your children.”
Other than that, a complete piece of shit as a human being.
Your son was blessed to have you for a few moments. This really killed. I hope that you and your family are all well soon.
This is heartwrenching. Don’t let him die in vain. Use his passing as an opportunity to do something bigger, greater and more positive than this website. Make him, your daughter and wife proud.
How. Fucking. Heartbreaking. Rip little Rex. The good truly do die young.
I am so sorry for your loss. I also lost my child during the second trimester and as a parent there is no hurt greater than going through that and I think about him every morning when I wake up. I also thank god every day however that I have my firstborn beautiful son who I am so grateful is happy, healthy and most precious boy and has made life worth living. Again to you and Shayne I’m so sorry for the loss of your son
I guess healing included selling ur story to tmz…
Aww…poor whittle Nik. Trying to comeback with “I apologize if you can’t feel.” You are so fucking stupid, Nik. That is such a lame comeback. lol
We can feel. Its you who is just beginning to feel after all those years of having no conscious. Now all of a suddewn you are the man with all the answers and its everyopne else who is out there..
Keep trying, little man, Keep trying. You’re entire life has been created on a sight where you felt like judge and jury. Well guess what, trash? This is what you get in rteturn.
I hope your life is filled with loss and unhappiness. Its the least the universe can do to someone as low as you. You are fucking trash, man. Maybe someday I will see you on the streets of Phoenix and I’ll tell you in person. I won’t hide behind a keyboard like you do. You’re free to take a swing.
You’re trash. Just trash. You and your whore wife, who wouldn’t make the cut on your own site, by the way. She was just the dumbest one who could put up with your arrogant ass.
Fair game right? Or is your family off limits to the same treatment you gave every one else?
Nicks wife is fat as hell and so STUPID! Nick deserves this! I don’t care if you don’t agree. Nick is scum and his wife has to be the stupidest chick ever. I’m glad their baby died. Too bad she didn’t.
Why make the letter public? You have zero class.
This is your first experience with what hell will feel like for you.
Eternally living through these moments.
Even someone as narcissistic as you will someday regret your actions. Until you change your ways, you will live this life. You can “thank” your critical posters to be cute, but anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows what you’re doing, and why you are doing it. Sure, you’ll pull the wool over your sheep of fans who are just club bimbos and meat heads, but those people don’t matter anyways. Natural selection will thin the herd.
Just. Like. You. Hooman. (you fake asshole)
It’s already happening to you.
Your son heard what you were going to name him, so he checked out before he had to live his life with that ridiculous name.
This is what is called “Natural Selection”
It’s the forces in this world that keep everything in check. It has already weeded out your future spawn to keep your procreation in check.
The world cannot afford another one of you, little man.
So sorry for you and your family’s loss. I truly hope Shayne recovers. Your letter to Rex is beautiful!
