Mandy Moore is a mom — again!
The actress, 38, gave birth on Friday to her and Taylor Goldsmith’s second baby boy, Oscar Bennett.
“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!”
In the post, the actress looked radiant as she smiled at her new bundle of joy with Goldsmith looking over her shoulder.
The couple also shared a photo of the proud dad, 37, getting some alone time with his second son as they cuddled skin-to-skin.
“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 hinted at her due date, adding, “Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 coming this fall!”
While Moore joked that her upcoming tour would “look a little different” with a little one on the way, she canceled the trek later that month after just 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 Instagramnoting that her decision to stop left her with a “heavy heart.”
The “Tangled” star continued, “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,” she concluded before sharing refund information.
The following day, Moore told her followers that it was “hard” but necessary to “prioritize rest over hustle.”
Her celeb friends shared their support, from Chrissy Metz commenting with heart emojis to Rachel Bilson praising Moore’s “mama strength.”
