The new mum revealed she was having a baby girl by posting photos from her star-studded baby shower – with the likes of singer Demi Lovato and fashion designer Nicky Hilton in attendance – last month.

Benson and Davis, who is the grandson of a billionaire oil tycoon, were first linked together in January 2023, before confirming their engagement that same July.

Davis announced the engagement by posting a photo of the ring to his Instagram Stories, calling Benson "the love of my life," while Benson shared the same photo to her own Stories and added "My best frienddddd. I love you."

Away from Pretty Little Liars, Benson most recently starred in Prime Video's psychological thriller series Wilderness alongside Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman.
