We can't help it - we love pregnancy announcements! There's something so heartwarming about finding out people who want to be parents are expecting. We know it's a huge decision, and not something most people take lightly. But we also know how amazing this journey is, so we get excited when someone joins the club! Celebrities like to share their good news with fans, and many choose to do so on their social media accounts. It's where they share little snippets of their lives, so it makes sense that they'd want to let everyone know the good news. Especially if they've had some bad news recently. As much as we love all pregnancy announcements, there's something extra special about learning that someone is pregnant with their rainbow baby. Pregnancy loss is devastating, and trying again is something a lot of people struggle with after miscarriage. When Pretty Little Liars and You star Shay Mitchell revealed several months ago that she'd had a miscarriage last year, our hearts broke for her. But there's a rainbow in Shay's future, and she took to Instagram and YouTube to share the amazing news!
The 32-year-old actress got very candid in January when she shared the news that she had suffered a miscarriage. She called for people to be more compassionate and and empathetic with one another, since none of us know what someone else may be going through. We know what a difficult road that must have been, and we couldn't agree more with her message.
But Shay Mitchell's latest Instagram post revealed much better news for the star! Shay was looking amazing in the topless photo, sporting her growing baby bump. She jokingly asked if her pregnancy meant she could use the carpool lanes now (we wish, Shay!). Shay also announced her pregnancy in a teaser for her new bi-weekly YouTube series, Almost Ready.
Shay and her boyfriend, TV host Matte Babel, appear in the video together. The two have been dating since 2017, and this will be their first child together. Congrats on the pregnancy, Shay! We hope everything goes smoothly, and we can't wait to see that beautiful baby!
