Final week, Shay Mitchell squeezed us into her schedule to speak about Fairly Little Liars, Dollface, motherhood, her partnership with Hydralyte, and a lot extra! As an enormous Shay fan, I could not consider a greater method to spend a morning than chatting together with her about our shared favourite Filipino dishes and gushing over #Emison. This is every little thing we talked about (spoilers forward for PLL, The Perfectionists, and Dollface!):
1. What are you presently binge-watching?
I’m nearly achieved with Ozark, so there’s that. I completed Yellowstone, which I used to be obsessive about. Additionally, Cash Heist was one in every of my favourite exhibits of final 12 months.
2. Who have you ever been essentially the most starstruck by?
I feel Beyoncé. I’m a giant fan, and all people is aware of that. However actually, on the finish of the day, I feel that everyone is simply folks. I meet some folks typically, and I am like, “Oh, I am in awe of your expertise.” And that is extra thrilling to me than assembly a celeb. If I meet a fantastic photographer who shoots for Nationwide Geographic, I am extra starstruck by that than the precise particular person simply because they seem to be a movie star, you understand?
3. You shared quite a bit about your first being pregnant and your psychological well being whereas going by way of it. What’s one thing about psychological well being and being pregnant you wished extra folks talked about?
I feel the primary time round, it was tremendous essential for me to speak about prepartum melancholy. I hadn’t heard a lot about it, which is why I form of went on an entire factor talking about my expertise. I needed folks to really feel like they weren’t “loopy,” like they weren’t alone in the event that they weren’t feeling like an excellent goddess throughout their being pregnant. It is okay to truly not really feel wonderful. That does not imply that you simply’re not grateful to be pregnant — I’m extraordinarily grateful. However there have been additionally instances the place I used to be like, that is shitty. And that is okay! We do not all must be pregnant, glowing goddesses the entire complete time.
4. How did you first change into concerned with Hydralyte?
I’ve all the time been an avid water client. This time round, clearly, I used to be pregnant, and so I used to be a bit extra drained and sluggish. However there was one thing else that simply wasn’t kicking in. I used to be speaking to my physician, and so they had been like, “You want extra electrolytes, attempt including these in.” I am not a fan of sports activities drinks or coconut water, simply because there’s a lot sugar in them. So, my pal really helpful Hydralyte, and I turned an excellent fan of it. I liked it, did my analysis on it, and was like, “Oh my God, that is superior. I need to work with them.” Partnering with them — and now possibly popping out with my very own little one thing, one thing — it is simply cool as a result of it actually helped me with my [second] being pregnant. Throughout my first being pregnant, I sat in mattress and watched Recreation of Thrones. However this time round, I’ve gotta maintain it shifting.
