Shay Mitchell just announced her six-months-along pregnancy and is documenting the rest of the journey in real time on YouTube.
The Pretty Little Liars and YOU alum has been keeping the news a secret by posting up-close selfies on social media and wearing red-carpet attire that camouflages her baby bump. Now she's ready to share the process with her fans and followers. Her boyfriend Matte Babel also shared the news on Instagram with a sweet tribute to Mitchell and his future child.
The 32-year-old actor revealed in January that she had suffered a miscarriage in 2018, which makes the upcoming YouTube series even more personal. The videos will drop every other Wednesday starting on July 17.
Mitchell's YouTube series Almost Ready will debut on July 17.
Mitchell wanted to share this series as an open and honest look into pregnancy showing the fun, but also the difficult parts of the experience. "It didn't feel right to just put up a photo, and be like 'I'm pregnant,' and have people think it's just been peaches and rainbows," she said.
The actor wrote in a message along with the video: "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. 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. 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!!"
