In a very trendy move, Shay told the world about bb Mitchell/Babel with an Instagram pic of them holding hands, much like Kylie Jenner did when she announced Stormi Webster’s name last February.

Shay and Matte kept the pregnancy a total secret until June this year, when Shay surprise-dropped a YouTube video called “Guess Who’s Preggers.” (And duh, the answer was Shay.)

“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,” she wrote at the time.

“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. 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!!”

And now baby makes a family of three! TBD on the baby girl’s name announcement, but knowing Shay...it’s gotta be something cool.
