Shay Mitchell is going through a lot of emotions in early 2022. On the heels of news that she lost her beloved grandmother, the 34-year-old took to Instagram to announce that she’s expecting her second child. The star posted a series of images showcasing her growing baby bump. Mitchell went topless in the shots, covering her chest with her arms and rocking a pair of sweatpants on her lower half.
“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,” Mitchell wrote on the upload, adding that maybe it was the universe’s plan all along for things to happen that way. “Gram, I miss you every day. Little one, we are so excited to meet you,” she wrote. “I breathe a sigh of peace knowing you two are already connected in such a cosmic way.” How bittersweet is that? Fans made sure to comment on the post to share their excitement over the baby news and their condolences on the loss of Gram.
In October 2019, Mitchell welcomed her first child, daughter Atlas. The model shared a simple photo of herself holding the baby’s hand between her fingers. At the time, she did not reveal further details about the little bundle of joy, but told her millions of followers that she was “Never letting go…” We wish Mitchell all the best in her second pregnancy journey!
