Shay Mitchell reveals she is pregnant after suffering a miscarriage 5 months ago.
The Pretty Little Liars star revealed five months ago that she had suffered from a miscarriage which had left her heartbroken. On New Year’s day, Shay took to her Instagram story to share the sad news.

Following this, she posted a picture of ultrasound along with a broken heart emoji.
She then shared her feelings on the next photo about her miscarriage and the support she had gotten from her fans.
She wrote, “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.”
But the actress remained positive and wrote, “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 and understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through.”
She added, “So for 2019, let’s all try to be a little more compassionate, empathetic, patient and thoughtful with each other.”
Shay Mitchell shares the good news
However, the YOU star has been blessed with another child. Mitchell shared the news on her Instagram where she posted a topless photo of herself and her baby bump is visible.
She humorously captioned the picture, “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now.”
The star also posted a video to her YouTube channel. She titled it, “Guess who’s Preggers”.
In the video, she goes to an ultrasound appointment as well as a maternity photo shoot. Mitchell talks about how she tried to hide her pregnancy at first and it had been a “lonely journey”. She said that she was finally ready to show her baby bump when she couldn’t hide it anymore and was tired of wearing oversized shirts.
She said in the video, “When you’re in the public eye, there are some things you want to just keep a secret until you feel ready.”
The YouTuber wrote in the description, “There is something in the oven and it’s not my pizza!!! WOW… It’s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you. It’s exciting, nerve-wracking, difficult and emotional all at the same time. Everyone waits for the right time to make the announcement. For me, it wasn’t until I couldn’t hide it anymore and was tired of wearing oversized sweatshirts.”
She shares the baby with her boyfriend since 2016, Matte Babel who currently works for Dreamcrew. The company oversees the business profile and professional career of the rapper, Drake.
Shay also wrote, “We’re beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family. I’ve learned so much about myself and parenthood over the past 6 months. I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface! It’s going to be a wild ride!!”
The release date for “You” season 2 is expected in 2019.
