Shay Mitchell Says She Will Not Be Taking A Maternity Leave

The Paley Center For Media's 2019 PaleyFest Fall TV Previews - Hulu - Arrivals

By now, you've probably heard that Shay Mitchell is pregnant with her first child.

The former Pretty Little Liars and current You star has been documenting her pregnancy in a series of YouTube videos ever since she and her boyfriend Matte Babel announced they were expecting their first child in June. Shay had previously shared that she suffered a miscarriage last year, so she and Matte waited longer to announce they were expecting this time around.

Fortunately, things are looking great for Shay and Matte's baby girl on the way - and Shay recently revealed that their daughter is due SOON. As in, beginning of October soon.

 

Yesterday, Shay hit up the 2019 PalyFest Fall TV Preview for Hulu here in LA to talk about her new series Dollface and on the red carpet she talked about what life after her baby girl is born will look like.

And I have to hand it to her, girl has some major ambitions and I support her completely! Everyone's life looks different based on what their work life looks like, the kind of support they have at home, and honestly, just who they are! Everyone is different.

Regarding taking maternity leave, Shay said:

“My entire team knows that there’s no maternity leave for me... I do a lot of my work on my phone and I have another company that I run. I love what I do, so for me it doesn’t feel like work.”

So, Shay plans on working from home after her baby is born and that's why she plans on not necessarily having a maternity leave! And while some moms may think that's impossible, I think it's entirely up to Shay and only Shay at the end of the day to decide what she can and cannot handle.

And if we've learned anything about Shay through her series of videos leading up to the arrival of she and Matte's daughter, it's that she can handle a LOT.

So excited to see Shay as a mom!!
