Almost Ready

 

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on YouTube

Docuseries Debut
A few weeks ago, Pretty Little Liars and YOU star Shay Mitchell announced on her YouTube channel that she is pregnant. She also revealed that fans can follow her pregnancy journey on Almost Ready, a YouTube series that will post every other Wednesday, and its birth debut is finally here. The series will illuminate the struggles of her changing body and the difficult months she spent keeping her pregnancy secret from the press and the public. Although Almost Ready promises to deal with some difficult topics like body image and loneliness, it also won’t shy away from Mitchell’s more fun and lighthearted nature. “Now I can do this,” she jokes at the end of the trailer as, hands full with a cookie and a drink, she closes the car door with her pregnant stomach.  —Caroline Tew
