Bachelor winner and former General Hospital soap star Shayne Lamas posed nude to show off her baby bump but it was not for a magazine cover. Unlike Demi Moore’s famous Vanity Fair photograph, Shayne Lamas has released black and white pictures of herself as she announces that her baby daughter will be named “Press”. The former contestant and winner on the Bachelor is married to TheDirty.com blogger Nik Ritchie, who was not the bachelor she got engaged to after being courted on reality TV.
“Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press,” she told E! News.
“It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,’ but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name – her name was going to be Press!” she continued. “I think Press is a beautiful name, we’re elated, little princess Press!”
Shayne Lamas was previously engaged to British financier Matt Grant who proposed to her on the finale of a previous season of The Bachelor but the relationship ended in July 2008. Her popularity as a personality is due to her showbiz family. She is the daughter of former 80’s TV star Lorenzo Lamas, granddaughter of 50’s movie star Fernando Lamas, and ex-stepdaughter of Playboy Playmate Shauna Sand. After appearing on The Bachelor she was featured with her Hollywood family on a short-lived reality show called Leave it to Lamas. In April 2010, she and Nik Ritchie eloped in Las Vegas just hours after meeting for the first time.
The couple’s first child is due on November 11 and they have already signed a deal with talent agency Z Group to represent their daughter once she is born. As first reported by TMZ, the agency will get a 15% commission of any entertainment earnings that Press will make. This includes both behind the camera work such as writing or editing in productions as well as any acting or singing performances.
