The hot Canadian couple may have started dating in 2017, but they met ten years ago when she was working bottle service at a venue, well before her Pretty Little Liars fame.

Although things didn’t quite go the distance back then, everything works out how it needs to in the end, and in October 2019, Matt and Shay welcomed their daughter Atlas.

Altas is probably one of the most beautiful babies we have ever seen, so whatever Matt and Shay’s genetics were doing, they were doing well.

Fans of Shay are super grateful to see her so happy with her supportive man on her YouTube videos, but the actress and influencer have been super candid about not feeling rushed to get engaged or married. 

After being asked by Entertainment Tonight in June 2020 about getting married, she made it clear that the couple are happy where they are right now.

“A lot of people ask. It’s never been something I really cared for.

“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], and 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,” shared Shay.

Their family YouTube video’s together are to die for – always revealing their entertaining and edgy personalities. 

Here are some of the sweetest Shay and Matte moments that prove a relationship full of humour is the best kind.

The genetically blessed family are known for their intensive travels and love of exploring different beaches – which may be why they opted to name their daughter Atlas.

Again, the best part about this couple is that they make fun of each other. In this 2018 post on Matte’s Instagram he made sure to give Shay a loving lil dig.

He wrote, “Always pause for a good pic and tell her how much you love her before admitting you forgot the wristbands at home…”

This scene from Shay’s YouTube video New Family Traditions is a realistic look into a conversation between a couple. They are in the kitchen, wearing comfy clothes, and Matte is working on baby gear, and the wholesome moment is filled with loving jabs at each other and a shared love for food.

They do not take themselves seriously, and just like Shay says she ‘doesn’t ask for diamonds,’ just some good food and love.

Back in the day, Matte interviewed Shay when he was working for ET Entertainment. The chemistry pouring out from this video is almost too much to handle. It’s like being a fly on the wall as two soulmates connect.

Even though they seem happy as they are, and marriage is not the be-all and end-all, we would love to know what Shay’s wedding dress would look like! Fingers crossed.
