Shay Mitchell announces pregnancy with stunning topless baby bump photo
Shay Mitchell, the star of Pretty Little Liars as well as You, has just announced she's pregnant with a stunning baby bump photo.
Posting to Instagram earlier this week, the 32-year-old Canadian said: "Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?" as she posed topless with her baby bump fully on show.
She's been flooded with congratulations from her friends such as Lauren Jauregui, Josephine Skriver, and Sophia Bush, while her Pretty Little Liars co-star Sasha Pieterse also reached out with congratulations.
The pregnancy announcement also came as a low-key video trailer for an upcoming YouTube show called Almost Ready, which will premiere every other week starting on Wednesday July 17.
Here's the video of Shay Mitchell announcing her pregnancy:
This comes hot on the heels of a tough 2018 for Mitchell, after she revealed in January of this year that she'd suffered a miscarriage last year with her long-term partner Matte Babel. "We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it's easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity," she wrote on Instagram.
"Having so many people follow me on Instagram and read my posts is both incredibly humbling and hugely uplifting. 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... For 2019, let's all try to be a little more compassionate, empathetic, patient and thoughtful with each other."
