Hollywood — Singer-actress Mandy Moore is pregnant with her first child with her spouse Taylor Goldsmith. Even though she is excited to be pregnant, she did not expect that it would happen so soon.

Moore told Romper that her pregnancy was “unexpected” because her doctors suspected she had endometriosis. Endometriosis is a chronic reproductive condition that occurs when tissue similar to – but not the same as- the uterine lining grows elsewhere in the body.

Moore said that she was fully prepared to go have surgery. She added that it was nice to have a plan and to know, “OK, well this is why I haven’t been pregnant yet.” As the Crush hitmaker started to get ready for the surgery, she realised that she did not need it, as reported by Buzzfeed on January 29. Moore found out she was pregnant with a baby boy.

“I guess I understand why doctors tell you, like, ‘Oh, just try for a year, and then if nothing happens, you can start sort of investigating,'” Moore said. “But I was like, man, I wish I had known before. It would have been a game-changer had I had that information.” Moore is now getting ready to welcome her first child with Goldsmith. The singer-actress said she wants to “raise an intelligent, feminist, loving, compassionate young man, who respects women and who understands boundaries.”

With parents like Moore and Goldsmith, their baby will be compassionate, without a doubt.
