She also shared a video to YouTube where she was looking at her bump.
‘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 next to the footage.
‘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.’
Getting ready for her shoot: In the YouTube video shared Friday, she was seen in her glam room wearing a bra with a jacket falling off her shoulders

So in love: Shay and her boyfriend of two years looked very much in love with each other
She added a long caption about how it’s ‘easier to only showcase the good times on social media.’
She began, ‘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.’
Mitchell then said: ‘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/
