Shay Mitchell’s boyfriend, Matte Babel, has some comments regarding childbirth that have made fans unhappy.The duo is expecting their first baby girl together.
Babel decided to school Mictchell about her body during pregnancy in the 3rd episode of her YouTube series and people are pissed. The 32-year-old actress is expecting her first child with Babel after a heartbreaking miscarriage.
The dad-to-be made it clear that he opposed the idea of using epidural during Mitchell’s upcoming labor. “I’ve been thinking a lot about this birth plan and I feel like we need to be more on the same page with this,” Mitchell said to Babel, saying “You say no epidural, I say epidural.”
“Am I partial to no epidural? Yes,” her boyfriend replied. “Why? Because I’m a hypochondriac. I’m afraid of drugs. My mom didn’t use an epidural … I meet women all the time who didn’t choose to use epidurals,” he added.
In addition, Babel stated that an epidural is not necessary because “as a woman, your body is genetically engineered to give birth.”
However, Mitchell joked, “Well listen, next time, you can do this.” Fans were not happy with Babel, 38, and his opinions against his 8-months pregnant girlfriend using epidural. Many started to call his comments a “red flag” while others expressed how much they disliked Babel.
The You star announced her pregnancy on her Instagram in June. She posted a topless photo of herself and showed off her baby bump. The actress captioned it, “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now.”
Fans were extremely happy for her since she had a miscarriage that she revealed on New Years. The mother-to-be posted a picture of an ultrasound along with a broken heart emoji in 2018.
“We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. 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,” Mitchell revealed.
Moreover, the Pretty Little Liars star revealed the gender of her first baby in a YouTube video captioned, “Do Not Try This Gender Reveal at Home”. In the video, two Power Rangers dressed in blue and pink had a short fight and then ended up jumping into the pool.
The pink power ranger got out of the pool and sat in the lap of the couple who had been expecting a boy. However, they were equally happy to have a baby girl. Matte Babel said, “I really thought it was a f*****g boy.” while Mitchell added, “Obviously I’m super happy. Literally, everybody was right.”
Mitchell’s boyfriend has been really excited for his little girls to arrive as he took to Instagram earlier to express his happiness. “Watching the both of you grow over the past 6 months has been the most beautiful thing in the world. The strength, vulnerability and grace you’ve had during this pregnancy has left me in awe, you’re going to be an incredible mom. We’re lucky to have you, love you,” he wrote.
Mitchell is 8 months pregnant with a baby girl.
