Los Angeles — Singer Mandy Moore is going to be a mother. She made an announcement sharing the good news that she is expecting her first child, in the sweetest way.
She uploaded photos of husband Taylor Goldsmith cradling her growing baby bump.
Moore is 36 and Goldsmith is 35.
They are expecting a boy in early 2021. Moore shared about this next chapter of her life three years ago, telling People that she is “definitely ready for motherhood sooner rather than later!”
It was her character as Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us that made wanting children concrete for Moore. Sharing with E! that same year, she said she felt a kinship with her character. “I was most concerned about feeling maternal, not having children myself. But being part of a project like this definitely makes my ovaries start kicking.”
Three years on, Moore is now expecting.
