Early '00s pop star and big screen icon Mandy Moore has been on the scene since her breakout role as a mean girl in the 2001 comedy The Princess Diaries. The actress and singer has given the world singles like "Candy" and "Cry," and movie staples like Tangled, A Walk to Remember, and License to Wed.
Mandy is now starring as mom of three Rebecca Pearson on the hit tearjerker drama This Is Us, and she's received both fan and critical acclaim for her performance on the NBC series.
In addition to sharing a passion for singing with her on-screen character, Mandy is about to find another commonality with Rebecca. The actress announced on Instagram that she is expecting her first child with husband Taylor Goldsmith.
While she's had to wear a fake baby bump on many episodes of This Is Us, for Season 5, it will be real.
When is Mandy Moore's due date? Keep reading for all the details on her pregnancy announcement, and for the refresher on her romance with the Dawes frontman. Plus, find out when This Is Us will be back for Season 5.
When is Mandy Moore's due date?
Just under two years after tying the knot with musician Taylor Goldsmith, Mandy announced that she was pregnant on Sept. 24. The Chasing Liberty star posted three black and white snapshots of Taylor cradling her bump.
Unlike her This Is Us character, who gave birth to triplets, Mandy is expecting one baby — and it's a boy. Mandy is set to give birth in the beginning of 2021.
"Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021," she captioned the slideshow.
Taylor posted the same photos and caption on his own feed to his 52,000 followers.
The pair did not specify which month their baby boy is expected to arrive.
Mandy began dating the 35-year-old in 2015, after officially separating from her first husband, Ryan Adams, in January of that year. The actress later alleged that her ex-husband, whom she was married to for six years, was emotionally abusive.
Taylor popped the question in September of 2017, and the couple wed on Nov. 18, 2018 in Los Angeles, Calif. Mandy wore a blush gown to swap vows with the Dawes singer, and several of her This Is Us co-stars were in attendance.
When does 'This Is Us' Season 5 premiere?
In addition to Mandy's baby news, there is another update that This Is Us fans will likely be pleased about. Filming for the fifth season of the Pearson drama officially commenced on Sept. 24 following a production shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
NBC also pushed up the premiere date for the show, which will likely be a relief for viewers. The network initially announced that the fifth season would debut on Nov. 10.
Instead, a two-hour fifth season premiere will air two weeks earlier, on Oct. 27.
Cast members and writers for the series have already confirmed that storylines for the fifth season will cover current events, including the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
