Mandy Moore recently shared the exciting news with fans that she’s expecting her first child with husband Taylor Goldsmith. When it came to breaking the news to her mother-in-law, she got a little creative.
During an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Mandy confessed that she gave her MIL a birthday card that read, “Happy Birthday, Grandma.” Given that she had no explanation, Ms. Goldsmith was initially insulted that she was being labeled a grandmother.

“She read the card and was like, ‘Oh, thanks,’ a little insulted, I think, that we were calling her grandma,” Mandy shared.
Thankfully, Moore’s husband quickly shared an ultrasound picture with his mama and she soon realized what the happy couple was trying to say.
Moore says that her MIL was beyond thrilled. “I’ve never heard a human being make the sound that she made,” the actress said of her MIL’s first reaction.
Let this be a warning to you before you go calling anyone “Grandma” without any context. Congrats to the happy family!
