‘Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell Revealed She Sadly Lost Her Unborn Child
Happy Friday and weekend “Pretty Little Liars” fans. It’s been pretty quiet on the “Perfectionists” spin-off show front, but former Pretty Little Liars Emily Fields star Shay Mitchell livened things up with her very shocking and sad confession on Instagram earlier this week.
To ring in the new 2019 year, Shay decided to inform all of her loyal Instagram followers that she was indeed preggers in 2018, but unfortunately, she suffered a miscarriage! Shay started off her Instagram message by pointing out how most people only share positive things on social media. She went on to say that it’s very humbling and uplifting to have so many people follow her on social media. After that, she mentioned that she experienced one of her darkest days when she miscarried last year!
Her Instagram letter reads like this, “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. Happy New Year everyone.”
Along with that letter, Shay also posted a sonogram photo of her unborn baby with a broken heart emoji on it. You guys can view screenshots of Shay’s confessional Instagram posts over on MTV UK’s site by Clicking Here.
It looks like Shay has since removed the posts from her actual Instagram account. Otherwise, we’d link to it.
