From Country Living

  • Mandy Moore met musician Taylor Goldsmith on Instagram, and eventually the two married in November 2018.

  • She was previously married to Ryan Adams; they officially divorced in 2016.

  • Moore and Goldsmith announced that they are expecting their first child in 2021.

Mandy Moore is best known these days for playing a loving wife and mother on the hit NBC drama This Is Us. But in real life, the actress has a love story all her own—she’s engaged to Taylor Goldsmith, frontman of the indie rock band Dawes. And their story is far from the retro flashbacks on her TV show.

How Did Mandy Moore Meet Her Fiancé?

In fact, Moore and Goldsmith first met in a very modern way: over Instagram. Moore, who was a fan of Goldsmith’s band, took a picture of their album and posted it. "Real excited about this one," she wrote on May 17, 2015. "Have a feeling it’s going to be the soundtrack of my summer."

"Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me," Moore told People. "We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Thanks Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!"

Who Is Mandy Moore's Ex-Husband?

They first started dating that year, but kept things private at first, People reports, because Moore was still finalizing her divorce from musician Ryan Adams. The magazine also reported that Moore and Adams had been separated for a long time, and rarely saw one another, before their split became official; their divorce became official in June 2016.

As Moore and Goldsmith started to get serious, they had to deal with being long-distance, especially when Goldsmith's band was on tour. "We spent hours FaceTiming each other," Moore told People. "We fell in love before we’d even really held hands or kissed or anything. It was great."

The two of them have taken time to support each other’s careers. Goldsmith flew across the country to support Moore at the Emmys in 2017:

And she starred in a music video for Dawes’ song, "Roll With the Punches." "I’m pretty blown away by her acting," Goldsmith told Entertainment Weekly, "and just blown away by her in general, I guess, so it was fun to bring together what we both do, even if just in some small way."

"We’ve had our fair share of challenges in life that we’ve weathered and it’s made us stronger," Moore told Us Weekly. "He’s incredibly supportive and incredible proud of me, as I am of him. I just found a true equal in every sense of the word. He’s my favorite person on the planet. And we have so much fun, no matter where we are or what we’re doing."

When Did Mandy Moore Get Engaged?

The couple got engaged at their home in September 2017, according to journalist Marc Malkin. "He was petrified," a source told Malkin. "Mandy said yes and is so happy."

Moore shared the news in a group text chain with her This Is Us costars. "She just sent a photo and just wanted us all to know that this just happened, and so then we went on a response spree for about a day and a half,” Chris Sullivan told Entertainment Tonight.

Where Do Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith Live?

In an interview with Shape magazine in December 2017, Moore revealed she and Goldsmith had found a house together. "When we move, I’ll feel like I finally have a place to hang my hat. We can set up the record player! I’ll know where my brown sweater is!” she told the magazine. "And we can start a family, hopefully sooner rather than later, and establish our own traditions."

Nearly a year later, after an extensive renovation, Moore finally opened the doors of their 1950s Pasadena home nestled in the California city’s private hills.

"It still amazes me. We saw the potential of this house and brought it back to life," she said in the July issue of Architectural Digest.

When Did Mandy Moore Get Married?

When she was asked about planning her wedding, Mandy said they were hoping to keep it low-key, just like they are. "We are both pretty quiet, private people," Moore told People. "I never imagined myself with some beautiful dress in front of 300 people. It will be quiet and private — just for us."

The couple got married in a backyard ceremony at their Los Angeles home in November 2018.

Do Mandy Moore and Her Husband Have Kids?

They will soon! On September 24, both Mandy and Taylor posted pregnancy announcements to their respective Instagram pages. They each shared a series of stunning black-and-white images, and Mandy captioned the photos, "Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021 💙." The celebratory comments came rushing in from stars and fans alike, and everyone is so happy for this adorable growing family!
