Mandy Moore Wants to Start a Family With Taylor Goldsmith ‘Sooner Rather Than Later’
Things have been going incredibly well for Mandy Moore over the last couple of years. And it sounds like they’ll just keep getting better.
“If you were to tell me two years ago that I’d be talking about my life in this way with you, I would have said that you were crazy,” the actress told Shape in a new interview that hits newsstands on January 2. “My life has changed exponentially in that short time.”

"As I get older, I’m learning what it takes to love myself fully through exercise, healthy eating, and monitoring my inner voice in an effort to keep it positive. By self-prioritizing, I feel healthier, more centered, and therefore more confident." @mandymooremm . .

Indeed it has. Following her split from Ryan Adams after six years of marriage in 2014, Moore began dating Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith in 2015 after the two connected via social media. Not long after, she landed one of the leading roles on NBC’s This Is Us. Now she’s engaged to Goldsmith and starring on a Golden Globe-nominated show.
“I went through a divorce. I moved out of a home that I had lived in for 14 years. I started a new relationship. I’m on a show that changed everything for me,” she told Shape.
And while the 33-year-old realizes how quickly things have changed, she isn’t in the mood to slow down the pace. In fact, she and Goldsmith are moving full-steam ahead. “My man and I found a house and are doing renovations. When we move, I’ll feel like I finally have a place to hang my hat,” she continued. “We can set up the record player! I’ll know where my brown sweater is!”
But that’s not all she’s excited about: “We can start a family, hopefully sooner rather than later, and establish our own traditions.”
The star, who recently faced accusations that she Photoshops her social media pics, also opened up about her newfound confidence in her body. “Although I’ve become a lot more comfortable with myself — I’m 5’10” and a size six — everyone has their self-doubts and insecurities,” she told Shape. “But as I get older, I’m learning what it takes to love myself fully though exercise, healthy eating, and monitoring my inner voice in an effort to keep it positive.”
She continued, “By self-prioritizing, I feel healthier, more centered, and therefore [have] more confidence. I’ve come to love my height. Taylor is a bit shorter than I am, but I’ll put on those four-inch heels and be 6’2”!”
As for her hit show, she said that her role on This Is Us is her “greatest accomplishment,” telling the mag, “I hope it’s a good, long ride. I feel so humbled by the magnitude of the work that I, along with all these talented actors, am lucky enough to do. It’s the once-in-a-lifetime situation that every actor hopes to find.”

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
