This ‘You’ Star Just Announced She’s Pregnant with Her Second Child

There has been a lot of pregnancy news this past week, with Rihanna revealing a surprise baby bump and Kylie Jenner welcoming a second child with Travis Scott.

Now, it looks like we've got another celebrity kid on the way. You actress Shay Mitchell announced that she and her partner, Matte Babel, are expecting their second child, and she dropped the news by posting a series of stunning baby bump pictures on Instagram.

In the slideshow, Mitchell dons a pair of blue sweatpants and goes topless to show off the soon-to-be addition to their family. The first photo is a close-up of the baby bump, while the following two snaps are full-body shots of Mitchell.

It's been quite the emotional time for the 34-year-old actress, who revealed only last week that her grandmother had passed away. She discussed these feelings in her caption, where she said, “Saying goodbye to a loved one while simultaneously experiencing the joy of welcoming another into this world is the great cycle of life. It is also my most challenging season to date. I can’t help but think this was the universe’s plan all along, knowing I would need other worldly joy to cushion the blow of losing one of the most important people in my life.”

But she added, “Yet, this is proof that love, life and loss can profoundly exist all at the same time. Gram, I miss you every day. Little one, we are so excited to meet you. I breathe a sigh of peace knowing you two are already connected in such a cosmic way.”

Mitchell and Babel have been together for over 5 years, and they already share a 2-year-old daughter together, named Atlas Noa.

For this latest pregnancy photoshoot, Mitchell was styled by Katie Peare and Monica Rose, while her makeup was done by Ash K Holm and her hair was styled by Rikke Gajda. Amber Asaly shot the photos.

We can't wait to meet baby #2! Congrats to Shay and Matte.
