It seems like just yesterday that Shay Mitchell announced that she and boyfriend Matte Babel were expecting their first child. But since they’re arguably having the most fun of their lives, time is naturally flying by. And just when we thought we’d have loads more pregnancy-related videos and Instagram posts to enjoy, baby’s arrival could change all that.

Shay and Matte did a tag-team live Q&A session on her YouTube channel on Sunday where they revealed all kinds of fun tidbits — including when Mitchell is going to pop. Well, sort of. When asked when the baby is due, Babel dished that their little girl is scheduled to arrive in early October because, baby, it’s all about the astrology. “Early October is when she’s due,” Babel said, adding that if she does arrive then, daddy and daughter will both fall under the Libra sign. Mitchell explained, “Matte is so set on her coming out and being a Libra,” to which he agreed, “Yeah, I want her to be a Libra. ‘Cause then, while I’m outnumbered by gender, we’re similar in terms of personalities.” Makes sense. But Mitchell also believes she’s going to be the opposite of fashionably late and might enter the world in late September. Mama knows best? Hmm, Shay already has that mother’s intuition.

Mitchell also divulged that once baby arrives and Shay and Matte need a night out, she already has a babysitter lined up: her Pretty Little Liars co-star Ashley Benson. Which might also mean her girlfriend (but not wife, at least not yet), Cara Delevingne, could tag along. Which means Baby Mitchell-Babel will have the two coolest sitters on the planet. Shay revealed in the Q&A sesh that she stays in contact with all her PLL peeps and when Shay announced her pregnancy, her former castmates — including Benson, Lucy Hale, Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish — posted sweet messages to their pal, sending their love and congratulations.

Troian Bellisario — who herself became a mom when she welcoming her first child with her husband, Suits star Patrick J. Adams, last October — left the best message, though, writing, “YAS queen. I am so excited to be a mama with you and welcome this beautiful babe to the world!” We can already see the pretty little playdates between their daughters.

It was just last month that Shay and Matte learned their baby’s gender in the most epic gender reveal ever. It was just the two of them, two Power Rangers and her assistant, who was recording the whole thing, NBD.

Mitchell has been open throughout her pregnancy, and prior to it. The actress revealed at the beginning of the year that she had suffered a miscarriage in 2018. And in the first episode of her YouTube series, Almost Ready, titled “Keeping a Secret,” Mitchell explained why she waited until she was six months along before announcing her pregnancy.

“I chose to hold on until I announced because of the first time,” Mitchell explained. “It didn’t go as I had hoped for, and it was extremely difficult.”

Her second episode was a little different. Titled “Why I had to wear a diaper!!” … well, it’s self-explanatory. And not an exaggeration either. Mitchell showed up to the video’s photoshoot wearing one “because it gets so annoying having to go to the bathroom all the time.”

Perhaps the diaper isn’t enough, though. “I peed myself, I got it a couple good times and I had to throw it out. I’m having to pee way too much. It’s just like, I’m over it.” Oh, is Shay in for it after the baby is born because, honey, it doesn’t get any better.
