Shay Mitchell responded to critics this week over pushback she received for attending Drake‘s birthday party, just days after she announced the birth of her daughter.
“I haven’t been really checking my comments that often, but apparently people are really upset that I left three days after having a kid to go out and party,” Mitchell said in an Instagram video, according to E! News before quipping, “It wasn’t three days and I left her with Angel [Mitchell’s dog], so.”
Mitchell confirmed in an Instagram post from Oct. 20 that she and boyfriend Matte Babel had welcomed their first child, but did not specify the baby’s birth date. The couple attended Drake’s mobster-themed birthday bash on Wednesday, Oct. 23.
And while some commenters chastised Mitchell’s behavior, stating, “This girl really left her 3 day old baby to go to a party… mom of the year,” others supported the former “Pretty Little Liars” star.
“New mothers don’t have to stay locked in their home 24/7 to bond with the baby,” a follower tweeted.
Mitchell, 32, jokingly replied, “Yeah EXACTLY – I left her with Angel and put water out for both of them :).”
The actress, who announced her pregnancy in June after previously suffering a miscarriage, also revealed she was in labor for 33 hours.
