Mitchell announced her pregnancy over Instagram and YouTube in late June, joking in the caption of a topless maternity snapshot, â€œDoes this mean Iâ€™m allowed to drive in the carpool lane at all times now?â€
â€œThere is something in the oven and itâ€™s not my pizza!!! WOW â€¦ Itâ€™s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you,â€ she wrote in the description for her two-minute announcement video.
Babel, a Canadian TV star, praised his girlfriend in an Instagram post after her announcement, writing alongside a photo of her showing off her baby bump, â€œThe strength, vulnerability and grace youâ€™ve had during this pregnancy has left me in awe, youâ€™re going to be an incredible mom. Weâ€™re lucky to have you, love you.â€
The couple learned the sex of their little one in an extremely unconventional way: by watching Pink and Blue Power Rangers duke it out, until the Pink Ranger emerged victorious.

The birth comes after Mitchell revealed in January that sheâ€™d had a miscarriage in 2018. In an Instagram story recapping her year, the You star wrote, â€œAlthough it was an amazing year, it didnâ€™t come without some hardships,â€ before sharing a photo of an ultrasound with a broken-heart emoji.
She opened up further about the heartbreaking experience in July, saying in the premiere episode of her YouTube pregnancy series Almost Ready that she was â€œcompletely blindsidedâ€ by the miscarriage at 14 weeks gestation.
â€œOf course Iâ€™m super happy, but I still feel for the one that I lost,â€ the then-mom-to-be continued, expressing that even through her sadness, she was thankful miscarriage has happened onlyÂ once for her.
â€œI know other women and other friends of mine whoâ€™ve gone through a way harder journey,â€ Mitchell shared. â€œItâ€™s just really tough because you feel broken, as a woman, and thatâ€™s not a great feeling.â€
In theÂ third episode of her YouTube series, posted on Sept. 4, Mitchell and her man were at odds over whether to leverage the help of an epidural during the actressâ€™s delivery.
â€œAm I partial to no epidural? Yes,â€ replied Babel after Mitchell expressed that she would like to use one. â€œWhy? Because Iâ€™m a hypochondriac. Iâ€™m afraid of drugs. My mom didnâ€™t use an epidural â€¦ I meet women all the time who didnâ€™t choose to use epidurals.â€
After joking â€œWell listen, next time, you can do this,â€ to her boyfriend, Mitchell shared on her Instagram Story that sheâ€™d been reading comments on the video when one userâ€™s idea about giving Babel a â€œbirth simulatorâ€ caught her attention. â€œBirth simulator, yes, okay, where can I find this? Please let me know,â€ she asked.
Not only did the star want the item, but she then asked her followers where she might be able to find â€œthe MOST INTENSEâ€ version to have Babel try by posting a Q&A sticker on her Story.

Her sex reveal wasnâ€™t the only unique baby-related event Mitchell attended during her pregnancy. Ahead of her daughterâ€™s birth, she was the guest of honor at a baby shower where all the guests wore pink dresses â€” and took a trip to see the Magic Men Live! strip show in Hollywood, California.
â€œOh my God. Iâ€™m going into labor!â€ Mitchell joked in the video on her YouTube channel as she fanned herself.
On Sept. 10, the model, entrepreneur and Dollface actress told PEOPLE that she wasnâ€™t planning to take an extended leave of absence from her career when her daughter arrived.
â€œMy entire team knows that thereâ€™s no maternity leave for me,â€ she said. â€œI do a lot of my work on my phone and I have another company that I run. I love what I do, so for me it doesnâ€™t feel like work.â€
