Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith Welcome Their First Child Together
It was late in September… but first, came August. Singer-songwriter Mandy Moore and husband Taylor Goldsmith are proud new parents to a baby boy. The couple took to Instagram on Tuesday, February 23, to announce their joyous new arrival of their son, August (Gus) Goldsmith.
"Gus is here," the This Is Us actress wrote on Instagram. "Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents. 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 multi-hyphenate shared a photo of her newborn dozing off with his tiny hands resting against his tummy. Moore and the Dawes frontman revealed their expectant news in September 2020. "Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021," Moore shared at the time. Read up on their wedding and love story below.
Mandy Moore's Wedding Details
Moore and Goldsmith married in a backyard wedding ceremony on November 18, 2018. The couple's wedding designer transformed the outdoor space with a dreamy display of lush pampas grass, wheat sheaves, roses, and a textured, all-pink baby's breath arbor. Rugs lined the aisle for a bohemian effect, though the color palette was well-orchestrated with pops of pink and neutrals enhanced by the natural environment.

For the ceremony, Moore wore a custom, Swiss polka dot frock in pink designed by the Rodarte sisters and paired with a baby's breath clustered hairstyle. The overall concept was styled by Moore's close friend Cristina Ehrlich, who honored the bride with a sweet message the day of the wedding. "The craft, artistry, and love that went into the making the most special dress, for an angel, a client and dear friend…" Ehrlich wrote.
Guests included the likes of Minka Kelly and other famous A-listers, all of whom were treated to a reception at the Fig House in Highland Park. The soiree included 12 different types of cake options, a whiskey bar, and a special performance by musically-inclined spouses Moore and Goldsmith. Following the wedding, Moore joked on Instagram: "Well, that was fun."

You continue to set the bar high for the rest of the world (as a partner, brother, son, bandmate, friend, etc) and I am the luckiest for knowing, loving and being loved by you. Happy Anniversary, @taylordawesgoldsmith. Can't wait for all the years to come.... 💕💕💕💕

How They Met
Moore was newly single after divorcing rocker Ryan Adams when she met her soulmate. Moore happened to be a fan of her husband's indie band, so she shared an image of their album in 2015. Somehow, it caught Goldsmith's attention and he made the first move.
"Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me," Moore told People. "We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history."
