The Real Reason Mandy Moore Has To Change Her Birth Plan

Mandy Moore is pregnant with her first child, and the experience has truly been quite the ride! Moore first announced that she and her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith, were expecting their baby back in September 2020 with a sweet post on Instagram that was simply captioned, "Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021."

Since then, Moore's friends and This Is Us family have celebrated her news. Co-star Milo Ventimiglia told Entertainment Tonight that he's thrilled for the pair. "I'm so excited. I'm so excited for her. When she told the group of us, we were all on a call talking about some stuff preseason," he said. "It was [series creator] Dan [Fogelman] and the whole cast, and then Dan hopped off, and she told all of us the news. It's wonderful news. You get excited about that. Mandy and Taylor, her husband, they are just the best people. They are the kind of folks who should be parents."

While most of the pregnancy has been smooth, Moore recently told friends that her birth plan has completely changed due to an unexpected medical complication.

What's happening with Mandy Moore's pregnancy?

Mandy Moore recently told her fans that she's experiencing an unexpected complication with her pregnancy that has changed her entire birth plan. In February 2021, E! Online reported that the star took to her Instagram Story to explain the situation. Moore wrote, "Weekly platelet check at the hematologist. My platelets have dropped exponentially during pregnancy and it's sadly altered my birth 'plan.' Any other pregnant folks in the same boat??"

This isn't the only medical situation that Moore has endured throughout the pregnancy. In November 2020, she told The Jess Cagle Show that she also experienced extreme nausea in the first trimester. "I couldn't eat. I lost a bunch of weight. I just, like, I just stayed in bed all day," Moore said. "But luckily, I know that's not the case for everybody that it sometimes can, you know, persevere for the entire pregnancy. So, I'm lucky that that kind of trailed off and I feel much better now."
