Shay Mitchell is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Matte Babel. The former Pretty Little Liars actress just shared the news on her Instagram, posting a photo of herself topless with her baby bump. "Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?" she captioned the Instagram.

Mitchell was last reported to be quietly dating Babel, a TV host, in January. The actress has never commented publicly about her love life. Babel appears with her in her pregnancy announcement video though, where she teases she'll be taking viewers through her pregnancy in the documentary series Almost Ready, which will be premiering July 17 on YouTube.

Mitchell's announcement comes after the actress shared in January that she suffered a miscarriage last year that resulted in the loss of "the child of [her] hopes and dreams." She wrote at the time in her Instagram Stories:

We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it’s easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity.

Having so many people follow me on Instagram and read my posts is both incredibly humbling and hugely uplifting. 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.

In the spirit of the new year, I think that we need to remember that we are all on this journey together-in good times and in bad-and to remind ourselves that we seldom really know or understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through.

So, for 2019, let’s all try to be a little more compassionate, empathetic, patient, and thoughtful with each other.

This sounds like a great resolution to me. I hope that you agree.
