Earlier this year, Shay Mitchell opened up to her fans and revealed in a heartbreaking Instagram post that she suffered a miscarriage in 2018. Now, in a recent video shared on her YouTube channel, the Pretty Little Liars alum is getting even more candid about the aftermath of her miscarriage and what it felt like to find out she was pregnant a second time with her partner, Matte Babel.
"I chose to hold on until I announced because of the first time," she explains in the video. "It didn't go as I had hoped for, and it was extremely difficult." Mitchell, who's currently six months into her pregnancy, announced that she and Babel are expecting on June 28. In the first episode of her new YouTube series titled Almost Ready, she tearfully recalls being "blindsided" by the news of her miscarriage before sharing that she's still healing her loss.
"The first time that I was pregnant last year, Matte and I hadn't been planning. It happened and we were really excited about it," she said. "I was like 14 weeks. At that point, I had no idea the percentage of miscarriages. When it happened I was just completely blindsided by it."
