Shay Mitchell says her relationship with partner Matte Babel ‘ebbs and flows’
Shay Mitchell says her relationship with boyfriend Matte Babel has highs and low, especially within the close confines of quarantine.
‘It is a lot at times. And I think that too can go on ebbs and flows,’ Shay, 33, told Us Weekly of her four-year-old relationship.
‘One minute I’m like, “You stay on this side of the bedroom, I’ll be on this side, do not cross this line.” You know? And then other days I’m like, “Oh, this is awesome. I feel very grateful that I have you here to watch this Netflix show.” You know what I mean?’

She then reiterated the common theme of her relationship of late: ‘So it comes in ebbs and flows for sure.’
‘I think we too also have to take our moments of alone time. I think that’s always really important,’ she noted before adding, ‘I definitely treasure those moments I get to myself as well.’
On Saturday, Mitchell took to Instagram and shared a photo of herself wearing a cropped sweater and a graphic of a crown on the top of her head.

‘It’s hard to say what my legacy will be, what I want people to say when I’m long gone. At this point, I want people to see me as an entertainer, someone who can do it all,’ she wrote in a personal confession.
Shay and Matte started dating in 2017 and eventually welcomed their first child, daughter Atlas, in October 2019.
The actress has been very open about why she hasn’t taken the plunge and got married.

‘And I love weddings, love weddings. I can watch them all day long. I love attending, I love being a part of my friends’ [weddings], anybody’s to be quite honest. It’s just not something I care for for myself and it’s something that Matte and I have spoken about.’
Mitchell maintains Babel has some to her to discuss whether she truly doesn’t want a proposal from him anytime soon.
‘He’s been like, “You sure?” And I’m like, ‘”yeah, we work so well right now.” It’s great and this dynamic just works for us. It’s great and this dynamic just works for us.”‘
Along with Pretty Little Liars (2010-2017) , the Canadian native is also know for role in Aaron Stone (2010), You (2018) and Dollface (2019-present).
No hurry: The actress has been very open about why she and Babel haven’t gotten married: ‘A lot of people ask. It’s never been something I really cared for,’ she told ET in June 2020
