A Beautiful Name With Meaning

Recently, Shay Mitchell lost her beloved grandmother Romaine. She was very close with her grandmother and wanted the name of her daughter to be inspired by the person she loved so much but is no longer here with her. So Shay and her boyfriend gave the little baby girl the unique name Rome. She wrote, in the Instagram post where she shared the baby’s name, that after losing the most important person in her life this year, right before she welcomed her second daughter, everything shifted for her. She continued by saying that one thing is staying steady in her soul and that’s the belief that her grandmother and baby girl have spent time together.

She also wrote how happy she was that little Rome is already here, named after her best friend, soulmate, her ‘person’ – her grandmother Romaine. She had opened up about the loss of her grandmother back in February in another Instagram post and said that her pregnancy felt bittersweet.

Back in 2019, Shay Mitchell and her boyfriend Matte Babel welcomed their first child – a little girl named Atlas. Back then, she announced the fact they have become parents by sharing a picture of her holding the baby’s hand and captioned it “Never letting go…” Shay had said many times how much she loves being a mom but she was also very open about the fact she had some negative emotions, too, when she was expecting Atlas. She said that once she shared her experience, many women did the same and this made her feel less alone.

Now, Shay Mitchell is a mother of two and things are coming full circle for her. On Mother’s Day, she shared a photo with her mini-me – her daughter Atlas and wrote that home is where she is and thanked her for making her a mom.
