Shay Mitchell’s baby girl has arrived. The Pretty Little Liars actress has welcomed her first child with her partner Matte Babel. Mitchell announced the news herself on Instagram, sharing the first glimpse of her holding her baby’s hand. “Never letting go…” Mitchell captioned the shot.

Mitchell told People in mid-September that she doesn’t plan on taking a long break from work. “My entire team knows that there’s no maternity leave for me,” she said. “I do a lot of my work on my phone, and I have another company that I run. I love what I do, so for me it doesn’t feel like work.” She also said that she and Babel “agreed right away” on their little girl’s name.

The actress announced her pregnancy in June and has been documenting it on her YouTube docu-series Almost Ready. Mitchell revealed back in January that she had suffered a miscarriage in 2018. She wrote on her Instagram Story at the time the following:

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.
