Shay Mitchell took to Instagram yesterday to introduce her newborn daughter to the world. The former Pretty Little Liars star shared a photo of her holding her first child's hand with the caption, "Never letting go..."

This is Shay's first child, and she shared the whole experience on her Instagram and YouTube channel, initially announcing the news with a YouTube video earlier this year. Shay is dating TV host and music journalist Matte Babel, who has been confirmed as the father of the baby.

Last year, Shay opened up about a miscarriage she suffered, bearing her heart in an emotional Instagram story. "I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams," she wrote. She didn't reveal the father of the baby, or any other details of the pregnancy.

Of course, that tragedy makes this birth all the more joyous. We don't know the name of Shay's daughter just yet, but we can probably expect a whole lot of mommy blog videos coming up on her YouTube channel very soon.
