EXCLUSIVE: 'Pretty Little Liars' Star Shay Mitchell Is Dating TV Host Matte Babel
By Sophie Schillaci
There's a new man in Shay Mitchell's life!
The Pretty Little Liars star has been quietly dating ET Canada reporter Matte Babel "for a few months," a source tells ET. "They are serious and are having fun together."
The duo was introduced through mutual friends in Los Angeles and both have Canadian roots! Mitchell and Babel both hail from Toronto, and the latter is good friends with fellow Toronto natives Drake and Ryan Silverstein -- who also happens to be Mitchell's ex-boyfriend.
By the looks of Mitchell’s social media accounts, the new couple is also ringing in the new year together in paradise. The actress has been sharing gorgeous snaps from Tulum, Mexico, on her Instagram account and even posed for a few silly Snapchat filters with her beau.
Just before the holiday season, Mitchell shared a heartfelt goodbye video to mark the end of production on the seventh and final season of PLL, which will begin airing on Freeform this spring.
"Sad, anxious, excited, terrified, inspired, gratified, nervous, unsure, proud, upset, accomplished, relieved, devastated, lucky: I didn't know it was possible to feel so much at once, yet I sit here with all my feelings," the 29-year-old said.
"Our show ending is such a weird, unique thing that I have only experienced from where you all are sitting: the viewer's side," she continued. "I remember shows I watched growing up ending and all that came along with a series finale, yet where I am seated now is so different. I don't know what my life would've looked like without Pretty Little Liars… I can't believe it's over."
Just last year, ET took a trip down romance lane with Mitchell to dish on her character's many love interests over the years. Watch below!
