Introducing … Atlas Noa! Shay Mitchell finally revealed her daughter’s unique name while sharing a heartwarming message about her baby girl on Wednesday, November 6. The Pretty Little Liars star posted a new photo on Instagram, showing her embracing her pride and joy just a few weeks after giving birth.
“Atlas Noa, in my 32 years of life I thought I had seen a lot of places, experienced a lot of things, met a lot of people and felt love … then came you,” she wrote.
“Truth is I had no idea I was capable of loving anything like this before you arrived. You wonder if that’s just something people say, but it’s as if the chemical makeup of my entire body and soul changed the minute we met.”
The actress sweetly confessed how she’s loving spending every second watching her little one grow up before her eyes. “I wake up each day (and also every 2-3 hours 😉 still in awe that you are mine, and I am yours,” Shay added.
Shay also mentioned how she’ll continue to support Atlas for the rest of her life. “Whatever you choose to do in this world, whoever you choose to love, wherever you choose to go, I will always be your biggest fan. I am already so proud to be your mama,” she gushed.
The Dollface star concluded her message by joking how the days of dressing Atlas up “as burritos and other snacks” have only begun. Thank goodness!
Back in June, Shay revealed that she was expecting her first child with longtime partner, Matte Babel. Shay shared the exciting news by posting a photo of her growing baby bump, after keeping her first two trimesters under wraps.
On October 20, the brunette beauty announced her baby girl’s arrival by taking to Instagram with a photo of herself holding Atlas’ tiny hand. “Never letting go,” she captioned the sentimental pic.
A few days later, Matte, 39, gushed over his leading lady while sharing a stunning maternity snap. “My Family,” the former VJ wrote. “I can’t explain the comfort in knowing she has someone as amazing as you to show her the way. I love you Shay.”
