She accessorized with a cross-body bag, circle-shaped sunglasses with a hairline rim and a pair of chunky white sneakers.

Shay opened up to a panel for the show at a Television Critics Association event on how she was able to keep her pregnancy mum on-set for so long.

The actress credited her character’s preference for volume when it comes to wardrobe.

‘There’s just big sweaters,’ she said, continuing that without them, it would have been harder to stay in-character.

‘But truly, my character’s wardrobe prior to them even knowing was already kind of loose and free-flowing,’ she explained.

She continued to say that her co-star Brenda Song had the ‘complete opposite’ experience when it came to her character’s closet.

‘Brenda’s character was the complete opposite. Had I been in her position I would have had to tell them a lot earlier. Once I saw the first fitting I thought, “Oh I’m good,”‘ she told reporters at the event.

Although Shay made her pregnancy announcement to co-workers about a month prior to telling the public, it’s possible they had already taken a hint.  

‘I’m sure they did know, they just didn’t say anything,’ she said.

Shay let the world know about her bun in the oven alongside beau Matte Babel with a topless photo she posted on Instagram. 

‘Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?’ she joked in the caption. 

The announcement came only months after Shay shocked fans with more somber news that she had suffered a miscarriage.

Shay let her fans know about her loss with an Insta-storied snap of the sonagram along with a broken heart emoji.

‘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,’ she wrote in the Story.

She then sent her followers off with a message of unity: ‘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 bad – and to remind ourselves that we seldom really know or understand the struggles and hardships that other people are going through.’
