Shay Mitchell surprised fans with a pregnancy reveal on social media on Friday afternoon. The model/actor also announced a new YouTube series, set to follow Mitchell as she experiences her pregnancy.

Mitchell announced that she is six months pregnant with her first child, naming current boyfriend Matte Babel as the father. According to Mitchell, the new YouTube original series is called “Almost Ready,” and it will be a biweekly series with episodes dropping every other Wednesday. The first video in the series is set to debut on July 17th.

At 32, Mitchell already has an impressive career with Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” and the Netflix series “You.” Mitchell is also a popular person to follow on Instagram, and she plugs a wide array of places and products on social media.

In Mitchell’s Instagram reveal pictures the model asked fans, “Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?”

Mitchell explained the new series on YouTube adding, “There is something in the oven and it’s not my pizza!!! WOW… It’s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you. It’s exciting, nerve-racking, difficult and emotional all at the same time. Everyone waits for the right time to make the announcement and for me it wasn’t until I couldn’t hide it anymore and was tired of wearing over sized sweatshirts.” Mitchell continued, “We’re beyond excited and looking forward to starting a family. I’ve learned so much about myself and parenthood over the past 6 months, and feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface! It’s going to be a wild ride!!”

Fans of Shay Mitchell can also see her in the upcoming series “Dollface” in the role of Stella Cole, alongside Kat Dennings, Esther Povitsky, Brenda Song, and Connor Hines.
