Shay Mitchell is happy to be a mom and entrepreneur. The celebrity mom tells Romper how she is settling into her life as a new parent and ambitious businesswoman.
“I can’t just do acting. I can’t just be an entrepreneur. I can’t just be on social media,” Shay tells the publication. “There’s so many things I want to do,” the celebrity mom says. “Why can’t I do it? I have one life, as me right now. I could come back as something else, but I have to do everything that I want to do.”
Shay Mitchell and her boyfriend, Matte Babel, welcomed their daughter, Atlas Noa, on October 20, 2019. The Pretty Little Liars actress is presently breastfeeding her infant.
“There is a part of me that obviously loves this moment, but … I can’t stress about it,” Shay says of the pressure that sometimes comes with nursing for the first time. “I’m just going to have to go with it,” she adds. “And when I run out of milk, then I run out of milk, and I’m already kind of weaning her on formula. It is what it is.”
Shay Mitchell further gushes about the joys of motherhood. “Now, there will always be somebody that is on my mind for the rest of my life, somebody that I care about more than anything,” the celebrity mom says. “And that’s never going to change.”
The coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed the way that global citizens do life. “I think in a lot of ways this pandemic is bringing out the best in a lot of people … sharing vulnerabilities, offering ways to keep people busy and occupied, connecting with more and more people through this shared experience,” Mitchell shares with Romper.
“This situation is obviously different as it’s riddled with uncertainty about what the future holds for us and our kids,” the celebrity mom says. “What a time to be a new mom,” Shay says. “But it is giving me pause and time to be grateful.”
