Shay Mitchell is revealing her new baby girl’s moniker. 

The “Pretty Little Liars” alum, 32, announced the arrival of her first child with boyfriend Matte Babel on Instagram on Oct. 20 following 33 “intense” hours of labor.

Mitchell’s journey through pregnancy and life inspired her daughter’s name – 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,” Mitchell captioned a picture of herself embracing Atlas, the first picture showing the newborn’s face.

Mitchell told Vogue that the travel-inspired name actually came from a friend. 

“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!’ It’s just the perfect name,” said Mitchell, who frequently documents her international travels and owns a travel accessories line, Beis.

Mitchell described the love affair she has with her little one, writing on Instagram, “I am already so proud to be your Mama.”

“Truth is I had no idea I was capable of loving anything like this before you arrived… It’s as if the chemical makeup of my entire body and soul changed the minute we met,” she said. “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.”
