Shay, 32, announced in January 2019 that she had suffered a miscarriage in 2018. "The support and affection that so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams," she wrote to her fans on New Year's Day.

The Canadian native also revealed whys he decided to wait until her third trimester to announce her baby news. She explained, "I chose to hold on until I announced because of the first time. It didn't go as I had hoped for, and it was extremely difficult."

In the video, the You actress opened up about her TV host beau. "Matt and I started quietly dating about three years ago," she said. "I guess you could say we're best friends now."

"The first time that I was pregnant last year, Matt and I hadn't been planning, it happened and we were really excited about it," Shay added. "I was like 14 weeks, at that point, I had no idea the percentage of miscarriages. When it happened I was just, completely blindsided by it."

The Bliss author then broke down in tears and admitted that she still has the ultrasound photos. "And it's weird because, I haven't looked at them, obviously," she sobbed. "But, it's not like I forgot about that happening, so of course I'm like super happy, but I still feel for that one that I lost."
