Shay Mitchell Gives Birth, Welcomes Baby Girl With Boyfriend Matte Babel
Shay Mitchell has given birth to a baby girl!
The former Pretty Little Liars star welcomed her first child with boyfriend Matte Babel over the weekend, announcing the happy news via Instagram on Sunday night (October 20). Though she has yet to reveal her daughter's name, Mitchell shared a sweet photo holding her newborn's hand.
She captioned the shot, "Never letting go..."
In the comments section, many of Mitchell's famous friends and former PLL castmates congratulated her, including Vanessa Hudgens, Nikki Reed, Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario.
The actress first announced her pregnancy in June five months after revealing she had suffered a miscarriage in 2018. In an episode of her YouTube docu-series Almost Ready, Mitchell said she felt "completely blindsided" after losing her baby.
“I still feel for the one that I lost," she said. "I know other women and other friends of mine who’ve gone through a way harder journey. It’s just really tough because you feel broken, as a woman, and that’s not a great feeling.”
Mitchell also documented a lot of her pregnancy on her YouTube channel, including the extravagant gender reveal party her assistant threw her. It involved an epic fight between two Power Rangers — one dressed in pink and the other in blue.
