The New Parents

Mandy Moore welcomed her new baby with husband Taylor Goldsmith. The new parents were married in November 2018.

In an interview, Mandy said of her hubby, “He makes me melt. I can imagine no better partner. He’s going to be the most tremendous father. I view the past as a stepping-stone to get me where I am today. I would gladly weather all of that a million times over if it brought me to Taylor again.”

In August 2020, the actress wrote a sweet caption on Instagram to Taylor for his birthday. “I’m not sure what I did in a past life to deserve you but it must have been something big. You are undeniable,” she wrote.

This couple definitely loves each other and will make wonderful parents to August!

Baby Gus

The mom-to-be announced her pregnancy in September of 2020.

Mandy posted to Instagram with the caption, “Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021.”

On Tuesday, Many posted again to share the birth of her son with fans. Thank you Mandy for keeping us in the loop!

She wrote, “Gus is here 💙💙💙💙. Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents.”

Moore continued, “We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined. M + T”

The Meaning Behind August

If you’re wondering how the couple came up with the name August, wonder no more.

Again on Instagram, Mandy let us know how the name was chosen.

She wrote, “It was last August when @taylordawesgoldsmith and I found out we were having a boy (it’s also Taylor’s birth month) and we always loved the name… so it was settled very early on in our book.”

The explanation was accompanied by a photo of a blanket Moore was given by her husband that reads “August.” 

In her caption, the singer explained further, “Then for our anniversary in November, T gifted me with this blanket with the “A” (for Amanda) made from extra material from my wedding dress and “T” (for Taylor) from his wedding shirt. Felt like a very fitting amalgamation of our whole story. I can’t wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day. 💙💙💙💙” 

We love the name and the meaning behind it. Congratulations to Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith!
