Shay Mitchell Reveals She Had a Miscarriage in 2018

Shay Mitchell revealed on Instagram yesterday that she miscarried in 2018. While looking back at some of the biggest moments of her year on her Instagram story, the Pretty Little Liars alum opened up about one of her “darkest days” and shared an ultrasound photo of the baby she lost.

“Lastly, although it was an amazing year, it didn’t come without some hardships,” the 31-year-old actress wrote.

Mitchell continued with a message about not understanding one’s struggles based on what they share on social media. “We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life,” she wrote. “And sometimes it’s easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads so many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity.”

However, she added that having millions of followers read through and support her posts is “humbling and hugely uplifting.” Mitchell continued, “The support and affection so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I lost the child of my hopes and dreams.”

Mitchell looked forward to 2019 on a hopeful note. “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,” she continued.

The actress added, “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.”

Mitchell didn’t reveal details about the father of her child, or when she became pregnant.
