  • Actress and singer Mandy Moore, 36, announced that she's expecting a baby boy (her first child) with husband Taylor Goldsmith.

  • She had been consulting with a fertility doctor about uterine surgery because she "suspected" she had endometriosis.

  • Their baby boy is due in early 2021.

Actress and singer Mandy Moore, 36, is expecting a baby boy (her first child) with husband Taylor Goldsmith. (They married in November 2018).

But during a new interview with Romper, she shared that she had been consulting with a fertility doctor about uterine surgery because she "suspected" she had endometriosis, via People.

"I was fully prepared to go have surgery and fix my uterus and hopefully get rid of the endometriosis, if it was there," she said. "It was nice to have a plan and to know 'Okay, well this is why I haven't been pregnant yet.'"

But Mandy's fertility specialist casually told her at an appointment that she was ovulating, but that the issues with her uterus may be impacting her chances of conceiving.

"So I was like, all right, whatever," she says. "And lo and behold..." she learned she was pregnant. "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.' But I was like, man, I wish I had known before. It would have been a game changer had I had that information."

And when she found out she was expecting, she was not sure she would be able to carry the pregnancy to full term.

"Because of this issue with my uterus, I was very hesitant to believe it and put any stock in it," she says. "I sort of was holding my breath until 12 weeks."

Their baby boy is due in "early 2021," and she adds that they hope to "raise an intelligent, feminist, loving, compassionate young man, who respects women, and who understands boundaries."

Congrats, Mandy!!!
