Shay Mitchell Celebrates Her Instagram Followers In The Cutest Way

We all know Shay Mitchell as Emily from Pretty Little Liars. But since the series ended in 2017, Shay has become the queen of Instagram. Seriously, her feed is perfect.

From stunning selfies to gorgeous vacation pics, it’s no wonder that over 19 million people have hit the follow button to keep up with Shay’s posts. Shay’s Instagram account has grown over the years, and she has celebrated every milestone in the ~cutest~ way.

With the help of everyone’s favorite picture prop, number balloons, Shay has creatively thanked each of her Instagram followers. Honestly, if we had as many followers as she does, we would celebrate too!

It all started when she reached 6 million followers back in 2015. Shay snapped adorable pics with balloons as she reached each milestone, but after 12 million, she started to get even more creative.

Once she hit lucky number 13 (13 million is extra lucky, right?), Shay started taking her photoshoots to different locations.


And as if Shay wasn’t already #goals, her posts continued to get even more elaborate as her follower count grew.



When she hit 17 million followers, Shay was ~literally~ floating on air.


Most recently, she’s accumulated over 19 million followers, and this celebration post has us seeing double. She jokingly posted that “19 Shay finds 18 Shay hilarious.”



We can hardly wait to see what Shay comes up with for her 20 million follower post!
