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.


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.”

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
