A day later on Thursday, March 3, she posted a photo of herself dressed comfortably while shopping and captioned it, “I never appreciated a couch in a store…until my third trimester.” And, last month, Shay jokingly trying to hide her baby bump underneath an oversized blazer for a hilarious TikTok video.

There have been many laughs, but it wasn’t all fun. Opening up about her second pregnancy in a poignant Instagram post last month, Shay also called this her “most challenging season to date” as she simultaneously lost her grandmother and prepares to welcome a new little one into the world. 

It was clear that the universe had a plan. She knew I would require other worldly joys to help me cope with the grief of losing the person who has been my greatest influence in my life. This is proof love, loss, and life can exist simultaneously. 

Elle added: “Gram, you are so much missed every day. Our family is so happy to have you as our little girl. It is a relief to know that you are connected so cosmically.
