Mitchell explains that marriage is "just not something I care for"

Mitchell admitted that while she enjoys the idea of weddings, marriage just isn't for her. "A lot of people ask, it's never been something I really cared for," she told Entertainment Tonight. "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." She even made sure that Babel knows she's not interested in a proposal!

"He's been like, 'You sure?' And I'm like, 'Yeah, we work so well right now,'" Mitchell revealed. "It's great and this dynamic just works for us. It may not always be the correct way but it works. That's how I sort of have to go, you know, that's how I do it."

Mitchell talks about co-parenting daughter Atlas with Babel

Mitchell mentioned that she and Babel have established a solid parenting routine. "I'll feed her and then he's got the nighttime shift. We've just been switching off like, literally, a team of players," she told Entertainment Tonight. 

"I'm grateful to have this time as a family right now. ...There are great days and not so great days, but we need them all to appreciate the other ones." The actress also shared her daughter's first word!

"She's not talking yet but her word right now is wow," Mitchell said. "This is embarrassing. I don't know if it came from that TikTok dance. ... She may or may not have heard that quite often. But every time she's like, 'wow,' and it's the funniest thing. I can be doing anything and I get a wow from her. She's obviously impressed."
