Mandy Moore is a mom in real life!
Moore confirmed on Instagram how she and husband, Taylor Goldsmith, are expecting their first child together.
On Thursday, Sept. 24, the actress shared the news with her fans on social media, posting: “Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021,” she wrote.
Moore has spent the past few years portraying mother Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us, and now, she gets to live out the reality in a way.
“I feel a kinship with her,” Moore shared with E! News of her character in 2017.
“I was most concerned about was feeling maternal, not having children myself. But being part of a project like this definitely makes my ovaries start kicking.”
“I want kids sooner than later,” she said at the time.
And now, the time has finally come for Moore — with her second wedding anniversary just a few weeks away. “He makes me melt. I can imagine no better partner,” she previously told Glamour of her husband.
“He’s going to be the most tremendous father. I view the past as a stepping-stone to get me where I am today. I would gladly weather all of that a million times over if it brought me to Taylor again.”
In August, she wrote to Goldsmith on his 35th birthday, saying:
“I’m not sure what I did in a past life to deserve you but it must have been something big. You are undeniable. Your inherent light, humility, grace, humor, and compassion are contagious and I feel lucky to get the chance to bask in your goodness with outstretched arms. Thank you for trusting me with your heart. Thank you for being the best travel companion, crossword puzzler, songwriting partner, pet parent, and my favorite person. 2020 has certainly been a wild ride but I really can’t wait for what this next year will bring.”
