Mandy Moore is ready to start having babies with fiancee Taylor Goldsmith. The former “Candy” singer and This Is Us actress made an appearance on Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist which will air on Sunday, October 29, where she spoke about wanting to start a family “sooner rather than later.”
The actress plays the mother of three on hit NBC show, This Is Us and when asked about how playing a mother has shaped her as a woman and if that’s something she would like to undertake in her own life.
“I’ve always wanted to be a mom. Yeah! I think I was waiting for the right person and the right time and for that to sort of coincide. And I think that’s definitely the next chapter for me,” Moore explained.
At 33 years old, she recently got engaged and seems to have babies on the brain. She was upfront about being mindful about the filming of the show and timing it just right so it won’t be incredibly noticeable that she’s pregnant.
She does mention that there are ways that actresses pregnancies are not written into the scripts and properly hidden in some way. She can hold bigger purses, stand behind risen countertops or behind shopping baskets.
Moore was previously married to musician Ryan Adams for seven years and while she eloped the first time, she plans on keeping her second wedding very unstated and lowkey as well.
Moore says shes never really been the girl who has fantasized about the white dress and the big wedding. She’s quick to point out that isn’t bad per se, just not something she’s ever really been into or interested in. Something small and quaint with family and friends is more her speed.
Moore, who rose to popularity as a pop singer when she was a teenager and had relative success as a younger actress, wasn’t really in the spotlight at any obvious level until recently.
Moore has noticed that there is an increased amount of people interested in her life who ask specific questions but it’s nothing that bothers her.
