Mandy Moore is ready to be a mom!
During the chat, she revealed how playing her character Rebecca Pearson in her hit series actually influenced her approach to becoming a mom.
“Playing a matriarch of a family for the last five years and getting to see children at various different chapters and stages, I feel like I’m as pseudo-prepared as I can be. I’ve had babies and toddlers and adult children [on the show], so I’ve gotten a pretty good taste and lay of the land,” she explained.
She also welcomed “unsolicited advice” from parents: “I will welcome anything because I know nothing. I’m like a sponge — I wanna soak it all up.”
Mandy also talked about hiding her baby bump on set.
“I’m sure you’ll see Rebecca carrying a lot of laundry baskets and oversized purses and God knows what for the next couple of months! I’ve also heard that they can go in and digitally change things, if need be, but I’m guessing it’ll be a lot … less full-body [shots].”
She also gushed about her husband, and the idea of family traditions.
“My husband is a musician, so the idea of being able to have music be this through line in [the baby’s] life is really exciting. To be able to bring him on the road with us is an exciting prospect. And holidays — we’re at the beginning of the best season of the year, and I think about traditions and the way we’re gonna be a family together. It’s so exciting.”
She’s known for playing a mother on “This Is Us,” and now, @TheMandyMoore is pregnant with her first child! She spoke to us about what pregnancy has been like and the new holiday music she has coming out which she co-wrote with her husband. pic.twitter.com/RjTW56cU4u
