Mitchell announced their pregnancy with a topless maternity snapshot that featured the following caption in jest: 'Does this mean I’m allowed to drive in the carpool lane at all times now?'

She also made a two-minute announcement video that included in its description: 'There is something in the oven and it’s not my pizza!!! WOW … It’s kind of surreal processing the fact that another human is growing inside of you.'

Following the announcement, Babel gave his lady love props in the form of an Instagram post, stating in the caption: 'The strength, vulnerability and grace you’ve had during this pregnancy has left me in awe, you’re going to be an incredible mom. We’re lucky to have you, love you.'

Back in July, the couple revealed the gender of their baby girl in an unconventional way by posting a YouTube video that featured a blue and pink Power Ranger play-fighting until the pink ranger came out as the winner.

The baby's arrival comes after Mitchell revealed in January that she'd had a miscarriage last year.

'Although it was an amazing year, it didn’t come without some hardships,' she wrote in an Instagram Story post of an ultrasound alongside a broken heart emoji.

Mitchell elaborated on the ordeal on the July premiere of her YouTube series Almost Ready, saying that she was 'completely blindsided' by the miscarriage.

'I know other women and other friends of mine who’ve gone through a way harder journey,' she said. 

'It’s just really tough because you feel broken, as a woman, and that’s not a great feeling.'
