Atlas is now a big sister after another bundle of joy.
The “Pretty Little Liars” actress revealed on Instagram on Monday that she and boyfriend Matt Babel are expecting their second child.
“Saying goodbye to a loved one while simultaneously experiencing the joy of welcoming another into this world is the great cycle of life,” the actress said in her pregnancy 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,” she wrote at the end of her post.
Mitchell is grieving the death of her grandmother, who died last week, as she revealed in a separate memorial. “Gram, I miss you every day. Little one, we are so excited to meet you. I breathe a sigh of peace knowing you two are already connected in such a cosmic way.”
She’s also spoken up about her depression throughout her first pregnancy as shared by Page Six, “Usually, I’m incredibly active and outgoing, but instead, I mainly stayed home to avoid stares and questions. I was extremely lonely.”
“Pregnancy can be a hard time, especially if you’re having to hide it. After I came out publicly, I felt an enormous wave of relief and was finally able to start enjoying the pregnancy.”
