Shay Mitchell's family just got a little bit bigger. On Sunday, June 5, Mitchell revealed the first photo of her second daughter, Rome, on Instagram.
The day before, she confirmed to People that she and her partner of five years, Matte Babel, had welcomed their little one in late May. The couple are also parents to 2-year-old Atlas Noa.
Mitchell first announced she was expecting her second baby in February. The "Pretty Little Liars" actor shared the news in a bittersweet Instagram about the difficulties of balancing joy over a new addition to her family with the grief she felt over the loss of her grandmother.
"Saying goodbye to a loved one while simultaneously experiencing the joy of welcoming another into this world is the great cycle of life," she captioned her post.
"It is also my most challenging season to date. I can't help but think this was the universe's plan all along, knowing I would need other worldly joy to cushion the blow of losing one of the most important people in my life.
Yet, this is proof that love, life and loss can profoundly exist all at the same time."
The actor went on to share how comforting it was to know her baby and her beloved grandmother shared a cosmic connection
