Matte Babel and Shay Mitchell are welcoming their second child

Shay Mitchell has welcomed her second child into the world. The Pretty Little Liars alum revealed the happy news to E! News at the Béis Motel pop-up at The Grove in Los Angeles.

“This is the first time I’ve actually been out of the house since having her,” she told E! News during an event for the travel firm she co-founded on June 4. “Coming to see my other baby is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Shay welcomed her second child with longtime partner Matte Babel, whom she describes as a “wonderful” father.

She told E! News that “I think it makes parenting a lot simpler when you find someone who shares your ideals.” “It’s undeniably a collaboration.” It is critical to find someone who shares your moral values. “

The couple also has a 2-year-old daughter named Atlas, who was born in 2019 after a 33-hour labor.

While expecting Atlas, Shay revealed, “Pregnancy has been one of the most exciting, challenging, and physically taxing things I’ve ever done.” “It’s given my family and my connection with Matte a whole new significance.”


In February, she announced the birth of her second child, claiming that the baby’s arrival was linked to the loss of her grandmother the week before.

“I can’t help but think this was the universe’s intention all along,” she added, “knowing I’d need otherworldly delight to help me cope with the loss of one of my most important people.”

However, here is proof that love, life, and grief can all exist in a profound way at the same time.

The Dollface actress went on to say, “We can’t wait to meet you, little one.” “Knowing you two are already connected in such a cosmic sense makes me feel at ease.

Since then, she’s shared her motherhood journey with her followers, which has featured lots of pregnancy fashion inspiration. In April, she wrote beside one crop top look, “Pregnant af but make it Y2K.” “Three days later and my feet still hurt,” was delightfully posted on another semi-sheer green tiny dress moment.

Shay and Matte have been dating since 2017, but they have no plans to get married anytime soon. In fact, she previously told E! News’ Daily Pop that it might never happen.

Last August, Shay teased, “I don’t know whether I’ve done anything in order.” “I didn’t marry until after I had a child. I had a child but did not marry. I’m not sure if that’s in the cards for us. Maybe it’s just me, but I believe we both agree. “

What does the future hold? We’re having a great time as a new four-person family.
