Shay Mitchell Announces She’s Pregnant with a Stunning Nude Photo Shoot
She’s apparently six months along.
- Actress Shay Mitchell announced her pregnancy on Instagram this afternoon.
- The You and Pretty Little Liars star posted a nude photo of herself with a baby bump and shared the news with a YouTube video.
- Last year, Mitchell revealed that she had a miscarriage.
Shay Mitchell is expecting her first child with boyfriend Matte Babel. The actress broke the news on Instagram with a stunning photo of herself posting topless and showing her baby bump.
The 32-year-old star captioned the glossy image with a cheeky note: “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?” Fellow celebrities from Josephine Skriver to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley filled up her comments with congratulatory messages.

She also shared more details about her pregnancy—she’s six months along now―with a new YouTube video called “Guess Who’s Preggers.” In it, she reveals how long she’s been hiding her baby news (she even attended an Oscars after-party with no one suspecting), how crazy her cravings have been, and how “lonely” pregnancy can be. She’s also launching a new YouTube Original Series, “Almost Ready,” to document her journey of becoming a mom.
Mitchell isn’t very open about her love life, but she’s been rumored to be dating Canadian TV host Babel since 2017. The couple is quiet about their romance, but Babel did make appearances in Mitchell’s new YouTube post, from loving footage of them hanging out to behind-the-scenes clips from the photo shoot.
Mitchell’s pregnancy news comes over six months after she revealed that she miscarried in 2018. This January, while looking back on the previous year, the Pretty Little Liars and You star posted a photo of an ultrasound with a broken heart emoji on her Instagram Story.
While reflecting on the “hardships” she experienced last year, the actress also thanked those who showed her love. “The support and affection so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I lost the child of my hopes and dreams,” she wrote in a post at the time.
