Like Drake and all of them, it’s a Toronto crew. We’re really, really awesome friends.”

Officially the couple started dating in 2017, but they keep their relationship very private. However, Shay is very opened about her luxury life on Instagram, also sometimes, she shares their daughter and Babel photo but not talking too much about them to the press.

In 2019 the couple became parents to their daughter Atlas Noa. The daughter was very welcomed because just a year ago, in 2018, Mitchell had a miscarriage. She miscarried their first baby at 14 weeks. Mitchell felt devastating. That’s why she opened about it during her Youtube series Almost Ready when they expected their second child.

She said about her sad experience: “When it happened, I was just completely blindsided by it,” she emotionally said. “I still have those photos on my phone. I still have all the doctor visit (videos), and it’s weird because I haven’t looked at them, but it’s not like I forgot about that happening.”.

Shay Mitchell opened about the marriage

Shay Mitchell and her boyfriend Matte babel are not rushing into marriage. She opened about it to ELLE magazine: “I don’t know if I’ve done anything in order,” she said. “I didn’t get married before a child. I had a child, didn’t get married. I don’t really know if that’s in the cards of us. I think we both agree; maybe it’s just me.”

She continued, “There’s no pressure here. I love it. I love the fact that we come home, and every day I’m like, ‘I choose you, and you choose me.’ It keeps us on our toes. I’m like, ‘Hey, I can walk out. I don’t need to go through a lawyer, I can just walk out.’ And same with him. It keeps it sexy.”

So she is pretty sure that she does not need a ring to prove their feelings to each other, and the true statement about their love is their daughter Atlas Noa. Even without a husband’s and wife’s status, they are showing each other love and support. Mitchell shares her happiness with her followers on social media, her love with a partner and daughter.
