[ # ] Mandy Moore reveals she is lucky to be a mom
January 17th, 2024 under Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, are the proud parents to two boys, Gus, 2, and Ozzie, 1. However, doctors told her that her dream to be a mom might not happen.

Today, the actress shared what doctors told her and how her role on This Is Us prepared her to be the mother that she is.

I’ve always wanted to be a mom. Before bringing my two boys into the world with my love, Taylor Goldsmith, I was a mom to many many cats and at times, just as many dogs (and admittedly today, I still am) . But there was a time when I thought I might not be able to have kids. I remember when the doctor told me there was a slim chance of getting pregnant… and then lo and behold to our surprise, I become pregnant with Gus.

Motherhood is a beautiful, messy, sleepless gift and to have two kiddos under two…whew!!!‍ Playing Rebecca on This Is Us actually prepared me for it a bit — like changing a diaper for the first time and running around set with “triplets”. Being a mom on This Is Us to triplets at various stages of life and now being a mom to Gus and Ozzie, well, I’ve learned that as hard as you try and as good intentioned as you may be, it is impossible to “get it right” all of the time.

Rebecca Pearson said it best: “It’s my job to keep standing there with my arms wide open, waiting for you to maybe someday fall inside if you needed it. And if you do, I’ll love you. And if you don’t I’ll love you too — because that’s what it means to be a parent. You’ll see one day.” And to that I say, Rebecca, I see it! #ThisIsUs and #ThatWasUs That Was Us

Moore’s sons are lucky to have her as a mom because she is going to love them whether they need her hug or not. And all the time in between that.
