Shay Mitchell Welcomes Baby Girl

Actress Shay Mitchell, 32, is a mom for the first time!

On Sunday, Shay revealed that she gave birth to a baby girl, her first child with boyfriend Matte Babe.

Along with a pic of her holding her baby’s hand, Shay wrote on Instagram, “Never letting go…”

Last month, Mitchell stressed that she was planning to continue working after her daughter arrived. She told People magazine, "My entire team knows that there’s no maternity leave for me. I do a lot of my work on my phone and I have another company that I run. I love what I do, so for me it doesn’t feel like work.”

Mitchell announced that she was pregnant in June. Showing off her baby bump, she joked on Instagram, “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?”

The “Pretty Little Liars” alum also posted a pregnancy video, while simultaneously announcing her new YouTube series “Almost Ready.”

She 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.”

Mitchell continued, “It's exciting, nerve-racking, difficult and emotional all at the same time. Everyone waits for the right time to make the announcement and for me it wasn't until I couldn't hide it anymore and was tired of wearing over sized sweatshirts.”

The 32-year-old added, “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, and feel like I haven't even scratched the surface! It's going to be a wild ride!!”

In July, Shay opened up to “Extra” about her impending motherhood while promoting her Hulu Original series "Dollface." Watch!

Earlier this year, Shay shared with fans that she suffered a miscarriage, saying that 2018 “didn’t come without some hardships.” She wrote, “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.”
