Mandy Moore is a mom! The This Is Us actress announced on Instagram today that she and her husband Taylor Goldsmith welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. They've named him August, but they'll call him Gus for short. 💙
"Gus is here 💙💙💙💙," Mandy wrote on Instagram along with a cute snap of her son. "Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents. We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined. M + T."
Mandy has always been open about wanting kids someday, giving interviews where she talked candidly about trying to figure out the right timing with her successful career. “I’m not sure when,” she said during a past interview with Parents. “Right now, my main focus and priority is my career, but that won’t always be the case.”
When Mandy and Taylor started trying for a baby, they ran into roadblocks. "Because of this issue with my uterus, I was very hesitant to believe it and put any stock in it," Mandy told Romper last month. "I sort of was holding my breath until 12 weeks."
Once she was pregnant, she and Taylor took time to prepare themselves to become first-time parents. "I think he's been suited to be a father for pretty much his whole life. He's been gearing up for this," Mandy added. "Like in the morning, it's funny, I'll reach for my phone and he'll reach right for whatever baby book he's reading."
She and Taylor announced her pregnancy back in September 2020, much to the delight of her fans.
As for parenting itself, Mandy told Romper she wants to "raise an intelligent, feminist, loving, compassionate young man, who respects women, and who understands boundaries."
Congrats to the happy couple!
