This relates to:
Using definite articles + mismo to say "the same" -

Hola Brett


Yes, you can! 


You can use the subject pronouns (yo, tú, él, nosotros, vosotros, ellos) followed by "mismo/-a/-os/-as meaning "myself", "yourself", etc.


Mismo will have to agree with gender and number though, in this case:


For example:


"Voy a decírselo yo mismo" (I am going to tell him myself--> if speaker is a man)


"Voy a decírselo yo misma" (I am going to tell him myself--> if speaker is a woman)


"Vamos a decírselo nosotros mismos" (We are going to tell him ourselves)--> if the speakers are masculine plural)


Etc


Noted for a new lesson soon.
