Shay Mitchell has been sharing all of the biggest, best and most challenging parts of her pregnancy with us through her YouTube series Almost Ready, including how she found out she's having a girl and how her recent miscarriage has shaped this pregnancy. Her latest topic? How pregnancy makes you constantly want to pee - and how she combated it by wearing nappies. Yes, really.
“Honestly guys, I've never known that somebody could pee as much as you do when you're pregnant,” the Pretty Little Liars star says to her friends in the clip. “I swear to God, in a half an hour, I went to the bathroom probably about 22 times last night to the point where I was like I'm f—king wearing diapers.”
While you might think she's exaggerating to get her point across, she's not. Mitchell is literally wearing a nappy. “I am literally wearing a full on diaper," she says as she pulls down her pants. "It gets so annoying going to the bathroom all the time!” she explains.
The 32-year-old, who is now six-months pregnant to her partner Matte Babel. Opening up about why she chose to wait so long before revealing her current pregnancy, Mitchell said last time it "didn't go as I had hoped for, and it was extremely difficult."
"The first time that I was pregnant last year, Matt and I hadn't been planning, it happened and we were really excited about it," she said in a YouTube clip, titled 'Keeping a Secret'. "I was like 14 weeks, at that point, I had no idea the percentage of miscarriages. When it happened I was just, completely blindsided by it."
Shay then breaks down in tears, revealing she still has the ultrasound photos on her phone and footage of her visits to the doctor. "And it's weird because, I haven't looked at them, obviously," she says. "But, it's not like I forgot about that happening, so of course I'm like super happy, but I still feel for that one that I lost."
