Shay Mitchell is about to be a mum! On June 28, the 32-year-old actress revealed that she's expecting her first child by posting a stunning photo of her growing belly. "Does this mean I'm allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?" she captioned the shot.
The You actress also shared the big news with a YouTube video that shows a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot for her pregnancy announcement, where she poses alongside Matte Babel — whom she was last romantically linked to, though she never publicly commented on their relationship status. "We're beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family," she wrote in the description. "I've learned so much about myself and parenthood over the past 6 months, and feel like I haven't even scratched the surface! It's going to be a wild ride!!"
Shay's exciting news comes five months after she revealed she had a miscarriage in 2018. In a heartfelt post, she opened up about the experience, writing, "The support and affection that so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams. In the spirit of the new year, I think that we need to remember that we are all on this journey together — in good times and in bad — and to remind ourselves that we seldom really know or understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through."
Congratulations to the happy couple!
