Shay Mitchell is officially a mom!

The 32-year-old actress gave birth to her first child — a baby girl — with her boyfriend, Matte Babel.

Mitchell announced the news with a photo she posted to Instagram on Sunday. The excited new mom shared a heartwarming snapshot of her newborn daughter’s tiny hand reaching out and grasping her finger tip.

Mitchell captioned the touching photo simply, “Never letting go…”

Many of Mitchell’s friends and fellow celebs excitedly celebrated the big news, congratulating the couple on the new addition to their family — including her “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Ashley Benson, who commented, “Congrats angel. Love you. Can’t wait to meet the baby booooo.”

ET has reached out to the happy couple for comment.

Mitchell has been quietly dating 38-year-old Babel since January 2017, and she announced she was pregnant in June with a topless Instagram picture showing off her baby bump. The happy news came just over six months after she revealed to fans that she had suffered a miscarriage last year.

“Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the car pool lane at all times now?” she joked.

Mitchell has been documenting her pregnancy journey on her YouTube series, “Almost Ready”, including her epic “Power Rangers”-themed gender reveal. The show also didn’t shy away from more serious moments, such as when she broke down while talking about her past miscarriage. Mitchell explained why she chose to announce her pregnancy when she was already six months along.

“I chose to hold on until I announced because of the first time,” she said. “It didn’t go as I had hoped for, and it was extremely difficult. The first time that I was pregnant last year, Matte and I hadn’t been planning, it happened and we were really excited about it. I was like, 14 weeks. At that point, I had no idea the percentages of miscarriages.”

“When it happened, I was just completely blindsided by it,” she continued. “I still have those photos on my phone. I still have all the doctor visits, and it’s weird because I haven’t looked at them, obviously, but it’s not like I forgot about that happening. Of course, I’m, like, super happy, but I still feel for that one that I lost. … It’s just really tough because you feel broken as a woman, and that’s not a great feeling.”

Mitchell also got emotional about not being able to do the things she was used to — like going out as well as pushing herself to the limits when it comes to exercising — and at one point, cried by herself in her car.

“This is the shi**y side of being pregnant when nobody knows because you can’t go out to see anyone, you don’t want to see anyone, because, anyways … I don’t feel myself,” she said.

Of course, Mitchell has experienced more lighthearted moments during her pregnancy, including her incredible dancing while trying to induce labor.

“I’m officially overdue and trying everything…. dancing, extra spicy Prince Street pizza, turmeric ice cream (although Matte seems to be having more of it than I do),” she wrote about her YouTube video on Oct. 10. “If the Baby Mama Dance won’t work, what will??”

Nicole Kidman is not usually one for posing in provocative photoshoots

Nicole Kidman is not usually one for posing in provocative photoshoots, but that’s all changed in her spicy cover shoot for LOVE magazine.

The “Big Little Lies” actress sports a tantalizing red swimsuit, by Amsterdam based label “Love Stories,” for the 18th issue of the fashion-focused glossy mag. She compliments the outfit with a Keith Urban style cowboy hat combination. Kidman struts by the side of the road in the white-laced bathing costume, a faux fur jacket sliding past her wrists as she stares directly down the camera lense.

Ransomware cyber-attack: Who has been hardest hit?

Ransomware cyber-attack: Who has been hardest hit?

MyJoyOnline | 4 days ago

The WannaCry ransomware cyber-attack has hit more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries since Friday, Europol says.

Governments, hospitals and major companies have all found themselves battling the malware, which demands money in return for unfreezing computers.

The virus tried to infect more computers in Russia than anywhere else, according to an analysis by Kaspersky Lab, a Russian antivirus company.

The interior ministry, railways, banks and the Megafon mobile phone operator – Russia’s second-largest – all found themselves battling demands for ransom.

An interior ministry spokeswoman said about 1,000 computers using Microsoft Windows were attacked but these had been isolated from networks.

Electronic boards at stations announcing arrivals and departures were affected, but train services were not disrupted, Deutsche Bahn said.

Many students reported seeing demands for ransoms pop up on their laptops as networks at universities across the country reported severe disruption.

Underfunded universities often use outdated or even pirated computer software, leaving students vulnerable to such attacks, according to BBC Asia-Pacific analyst Celia Hatton.

They are now being forced to pay $300 (£230) to continue working on end-of-year projects due to be handed in soon, our correspondent says.

Overall, hundreds of thousands of computers at nearly 30,000 institutions and organisations were affected, including government agencies and hospitals, internet firm 360 Security said.

A company official said films were still being screened as scheduled and the company was investigating.

Overall, nine cases of ransomware had been found, the South Korean government said.

The Japan Computer Emergency Response Team Co-ordination Centre said 2,000 computers at 600 companies in Japan had been affected.

Hitachi said it was experiencing email delays and file delivery failures and suspected the cyber-attack was to blame, although no ransom was being demanded.

The communication and information ministry said the malware locked patient files on computers at two hospitals in the capital Jakarta.

Patients at the Dharmais Cancer Hospital could not get queue numbers and waited several hours while staff found paper records, local media reported.

Several companies in the cities of Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai were also affected.

However India has said that its vital computer systems largely escaped unscathed because the state organisation that manages almost all government websites installed patches to immunise its Windows systems.

Some of the biggest disruption was caused by attacks on the UK health system, which saw hospitals and clinics forced to turn away patients after losing access to computers.

Pictures on social media showed NHS computer screens with messages saying: “Ooops, your files have been encrypted!”

In England, 48 National Health Service (NHS) trusts reported problems at hospitals, doctor surgeries or pharmacies, and 13 NHS organisations in Scotland were also affected.

A Nissan car factory in the north-eastern city of Sunderland was also affected, a spokeswoman said.

The Spanish telephone operator Telefonica said it had been attacked. Telefonica’s head of cyber-security Chema Alonso – himself a former hacker – said the infected equipment was “under control and being reinstalled”.

Other Spanish firms to be hit included power firm Iberdrola and utility provider Gas Natural. Staff were reportedly told to turn off their computers.

The car manufacturer had to halt production at many sites, including in France, Slovenia and Romania, as part of measures to stop the spread of the virus.

On Monday the firm said that 90% of its factories were running again. It said its plant at Douai in northern France would be back to normal on Tuesday, following checks. Renault would be able to catch up with any lost production so customers would not be affected, it added.

Three hospitals in Ireland have been affected but the government says it will not name them and patient care is “broadly unaffected”.

The logistics firm said it was “implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible”, without specifying how badly it had been affected.

Australian officials said so far only three small-to-medium sized businesses had reported being locked.
