Mandy Moore married Taylor Goldsmith in November 2018 after three years of dating. The couple declared their intention to start a family in September 2020. Mandy recently welcomed her second child, following the birth of her first in 2021.

Oscar Bennett, the actress, and Taylor Goldsmith’s second child was born on Friday. “Ozzie is here! Oscar Bennett Goldsmith arrived a little late but with much aplomb (and an easier/speedier delivery than his big brother, much to the delight of his parents),” both Moore and Goldsmith announced in a joint Instagram post.

Every adage is true: our hearts have doubled in size and the immediacy of the love is astounding. He is beyond words and we are so grateful for our family of four!

The actress appeared radiant in the photo, smiling at her little bundle of joy while Goldsmith glanced over her shoulder. The couple also shared a photo of the proud father spending time alone with his second baby, cuddling skin-to-skin. Gus, the couple’s elder son, was born in February 2021, and the toddler made a cute appearance in Moore’s pregnancy announcement in June.


“One incredibly seminal chapter of my life just ended,” the “This Is Us” star wrote on Instagram at the time of her six seasons on the NBC show. “The next one, as a mother of two, is about to start … and are we ever so deeply grateful and excited,” Moore captioned the sweet snap of Gus in a “big brother” shirt. The singer then teased her next pregnancy, saying, “Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 coming this fall!”

Moore quipped that her upcoming tour would “look a little different” now that she was expecting a child. However, she canceled the trek later that month after only 12 shows. “It has been an honor and an absolute dream to return to the stage again this past month, performing for all of you,” she wrote via Instagram, noting that her decision to stop left her with a “heavy heart.”

When we booked these shows, I wasn’t pregnant and although I truly thought I could power through, the way we are traveling (long hours on the bus and not getting proper rest) has caught up, taken its toll and made it feel too challenging to proceed.

I know that I have to put my family and my health (and the health of my baby) first and the best place for me to be right now is at home.

Moore reminded her followers the next day that it was “hard,” but necessary, to “prioritize rest over hustle.” Chrissy Metz commented with heart emojis, and Rachel Bilson praised Moore’s “mama strength.” We wish the family health and happiness. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
