“There’s a good chance I’m the happiest, happiest person you know … and now we’re going to double it.”
LOS ANGELES – Shortly after leaving NBC’s hit drama ‘This is Us’ with its series finale, singer and actress Mandy Moore is about to face another big life event.
Moore announced Friday that she is expecting her second baby with her husband, singer Taylor Goldsmith.
“An incredibly landmark chapter of my life has just concluded and the next as a mother of two is about to begin… and we are so deeply grateful and excited,” Moore wrote on Instagram. “Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 is coming this fall!”
Moore, who has an album tour next week, announced the news with a photo of the couple’s first child wearing a “Big Brother” shirt.
“The tour is going to be a little different than what I expected but I can’t wait and Gus is going to be the BEST big brother!!” Moore wrote.
Goldsmith shared the news with the same photo, saying Moore will be “the best” mom of two.
“There’s a good chance I’m the happiest, happiest person you know (or just follow) and now we’re going to double it,” Goldsmith wrote.
Moore and Goldsmith, frontman of folk rock band Dawes, married in 2018. Their first child, August Harrison Goldsmith, was born in February 2021.
Moore played Rebecca Pearson, the matriarch at the heart of the Pearson family’s journey, on This is Us. The show’s finale aired on May 24 after six seasons and more than 100 episodes.
