Mandy Moore Opens Up About Surprise Pregnancy Amid Fertility Struggles

Mandy Moore is opening up about the challenges she faced during her pregnancy journey.

The This is Us actress got candid about her fertility struggles and “unexpected” pregnancy in a new interview with Romper on Wednesday (January 27).

Mandy explained that after a meeting with her fertility doctor, she suspected she would need surgery before being able to carry a child.

“I was fully prepared to go have surgery and fix my uterus and hopefully get rid of the endometriosis, if it was there,” Mandy shared. “It was nice to have a plan and to know ‘Okay, well this is why I haven’t been pregnant yet.’”

When the doctor then told Mandy that she was ovulating and suggested she try for a baby, despite the small chance of conceiving, her expectations of anything happening were low. After finding out she was pregnant, she was reluctant to accept the news even when it had been confirmed by doctors.

“Because of this issue with my uterus, I was very hesitant to believe it and put any stock in it,” Mandy added. “I sort of was holding my breath until 12 weeks.”

The star also revealed how her husband Taylor Goldsmith has been preparing for their baby’s arrival.

“I think he’s been suited to be a father for pretty much his whole life. He’s been gearing up for this,” Mandy said. “Like in the morning, it’s funny, I’ll reach for my phone and he’ll reach right for whatever baby book he’s reading.”

Taylor just bought Mandy a very special gift to celebrate becoming parents – find out what it is!
