Shay announced her pregnancy in late June via Instagram and YouTube, surprising fans and followers all over the world with a topless maternity photo. She and Matte also had the funniest gender reveal in the form of a battle between a Blue Power Ranger and a Pink Power Ranger. The Pink Ranger, of course, emerged victorious from the hilarious scuffle.
This birth also comes after Shay revealed in January that she suffered a miscarriage in 2018 at 14 weeks gestation. She opened up about her experience briefly on her Instagram story where she posted an ultrasound with a broken heart emoji, and again on the premiere episode of her YouTube pregnancy series Almost Ready.
“Of course I’m super happy, but I still feel for the one that I lost,” she said in the episode.
Shay is best known for her roles in long-running series Pretty Little Liars and in Netflix show You. She met Matte through mutual friends and have been romantically linked since January 2017.
