Shay Mitchell just welcomed a bundle of joy – and that ain’t no lie. The ‘PLL’ star and her love, Matte Babel, just became parents to a precious little girl!
Months after letting everyone know that she was “preggers,” Shay Mitchell, 32, is now a mom! The Pretty Little Liars star and her boyfriend Matte Babel, 39, welcomed their first child together confirmed via a post to her Instagram on Sunday, Oct. 20. “Never letting go…” Shay sweetly captioned the image of her holding the baby’s hand. Though her daughter’s face isn’t shown and we’re still waiting on a name, the baby can be seen wearing a cute pink-and-white striped sleeper.
Shay has been actively documenting her “overdue” pregnancy on social media, even twerking to try and induce labor! ‘I’m officially overdue and trying everything…. dancing, extra spicy Prince Street pizza, turmeric ice cream (although Matte seems to be having more of it than I do),” she captioned a hilarious video on Oct. 10. “Been pregnant for way too long,” she then mouthed.
“Guess who’s preggers?” Shay titled a June 28 YouTube video that announced her pregnancy. “There is something in the oven and it’s not my pizza!!!” she wrote in the video’s description, noting that at the time, she was six months pregnant. “WOW… It’s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you. 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 oversized sweatshirts.”
“We’re beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family,” she added. The video also featured a shot of Matte, who was only her rumored boyfriend. In the ensuing weeks after this announcement, not only did they confirm their relationship, but they also shared their journey
