Mandy Moore has welcomed her first child, a son, with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith.
"Gus is here," she wrote, followed by four blue emoji hearts.
"Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents. We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined," she penned.
She Posted A Sweet Photo Of Her Son To Instagram
Gus looked adorable in the photograph shared by his mother. He wore a powder blue onesie with a zipper that ran up the front. His hands were in front of his body, showing off his long fingers.
Mandy first announced her pregnancy on the social media site in September 2020. She and Taylor, lead singer of the folk-rock band Dawes, stood next to one another in a black and white photograph. He rested his right hand atop her belly.
The couple has been married since November 2018.

"The little things kind of get me," she admitted of the preparation ahead of Gus' arrival into the world.
"Like, I was online buying pacifiers yesterday, and I just turned to my husband, and I was like, It's real. There's going to be a little human that needs a pacifier," Mandy said.
