'Pretty Little Liars' Star Stuns Fans With Pregnancy Announcement

Over the weekend Shay Mitchell posted quite the revealing Instagram, but it's not what you think.

Simply captioning the pic, "Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?" Mitchell revealed she's been quietly hiding the fact that she's pregnant for several months now.

The announcement comes just a few months after Mitchell posted a lengthy Instagram story about experiencing a miscarriage.

"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 wrote in January.

Her announcement of the news also coincided with the launch of her new web series, a YouTube original called "Almost Ready" which launches on July 17.

In a trailer for the series that dropped over the weekend, Mitchell can be seen attempting to cover up her pregnancy, also talking about the hardship of keeping the secret.

"Months of hiding has been a really lonely journey," she says in the short clip. "I think pregnancy is awesome for the most part but it's also really f**king lonely."

Mitchell's surprise announcement was met with huge love from her fans and co-stars with former 'Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale and Ashley Benson both sending their love in the comments.
