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. 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. I wake up each day (and also every 2-3 hours 😉 still in awe that you are mine, and I am yours. I’m still learning about you and I’ll never grow old of watching you slowly wake up, catch a glimpse of me or your dad and focus intently, almost as if to say “I know you.” Just know, sweet girl – 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. PS. The days of dressing you up as burritos and other snacks has only just begun. ❤️
The little girl was named Atlas Noa and both parents were keeping the name a secret from friends for a very long time.
“A close friend of ours was listing off names for her daughter that she had had a year and a half ago. Then she said Atlas and I looked at Matte, and he looked at me, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’” admits Shay. “It’s just the perfect name; from that day, we knew it was going to be Atlas. People would ask us, ‘Do you have a name?’ But we were keeping it hidden. I’m sorry to everybody that I lied to!”
Shay also reflected on motherhood in a recent interview with Vogue.
“I find myself being a lot more present, and I’m just looking at her every single day,” says Shay. “You reflect on how fast time passes when you’re forced to slow down. The surprising thing is how much I enjoy this calmness.”
Atlas Noa is the first child for both Shay and her boyfriend Matte. Shay was pregnant in 2018, but suffered a miscarriage and lost a baby.
