While her This Is Us character’s marriage is on the rocks (still crying about that heartbreaking finale), Mandy Moore is hearing wedding bells in real life. “I would definitely get married again,” Moore told People in this week’s issue.
Earlier this month, Moore and her boyfriend, Taylor Goldsmith (the guitarist for indie rock band Dawes), celebrated their two-year anniversary. Moore was previously married to singer-songwriter Ryan Adams (she didn’t wear a wedding dress to the unconventional ceremony), but the pair split in 2015 after six years together.
And this isn’t the first time Moore’s admitted her onscreen character, Rebecca, has made her think about her own wedding. After donning a stunning white dress for Rebecca’s courthouse wedding to Milo Ventimiglia’s character, Jack, Moore told People she just might wear a similar dress for her next wedding.
"I was like, 'I know I actually already did this once before, but I eloped and I didn't have a wedding dress, so maybe if I do round two one day,'" said Moore. "Wearing a wedding dress for that episode kind of shifted my mindset on wearing a proper wedding dress. I was like, 'I kinda feel like I have to do this in real life now.'"
Moore isn’t just talking marriage, though. The onscreen mother of three also told People she’s thinking about children of her own in the nearish future. “I’m definitely ready for motherhood sooner rather than later!” she said. “I think that’s going to be the next chapter.”
While she’s looking forward to marriage and motherhood, Moore isn’t trying to force anything. “My life has sort of taken unexpected twists and turns professionally and personally, but overall my journey is the reason I am here today and I feel fulfilled by everything that happened,” she said.
She might be patient, but we’re certainly not. Thankfully, the Emmy-nominated show will be back for Season 2 on September 26. Get ready to binge-watch while waiting for more of Moore’s exciting announcements!
