A gorgeous songstress, Mandy Moore toured with the Backstreet Boys and stepped into the world of glitz and glam in the late '90s before dropping her hit album ‘So Real’ in 1999. To break her “pop princess” image, she got a makeover after darkening her blonde hair and embarking on a film career. She then climbed the ladder of success with her roles in movies like ‘A Walk to Remember’, ‘Because I Said So’, ‘License to Wed’, ‘Love, Wedding, Marriage’ and ‘The Darkest Minds’. Did you know she also voiced Princess Rapunzel in Disney's ‘Tangled’? Born on April 10, 1984, the 36-year-old is now in the limelight for playing Rebecca Pearson in ‘This Is Us’. 


Moore was raised in Nashua, New Hampshire (twice named Best Place to Live in America) by her parents — Stacy, a former Orlando Sentinel news reporter, and Donald Moore, a pilot for American Airlines. When Moore was two months old, she and her family moved to Longwood, Florida. If reports are to be believed, she then studied at Bishop Moore Catholic High School in Orlando from 1998 to 1999 and allegedly met her longtime boyfriend David Stater, went on to date Zach Braff and first married Ryan Adams, but the relationship soon collapsed in 2016 after years of reported emotional abuse.

As the actress continues her stint in the beloved NBC series, here's a look at her love life and relationship with Taylor Goldsmith. 

Who is Mandy Moore's husband?

Back in 2015, Mandy Moore crossed paths with Taylor Goldsmith. The singer-songwriter is the lead singer and guitarist of the folk-rock band Dawes. Goldsmith's father was Lenny Goldsmith, a Jewish musician who toured as the lead singer of Tower of Power in the 1980s. Back in 2002, Taylor Goldsmith paired with his high school classmate Blake Mills to form a band named Simon Dawes. A number of bassists (Damon Webb, Grant Powell and Wylie Gelber) and drummers (Alex Orbison, Dylan Grombocher and Griffin Goldsmith) joined the troupe but after Mills left the band in 2007, it was renamed as Dawes.

In 2015, Mandy Moore crossed paths with Goldsmith and sparks flew. Believe it or not, their love story began on Instagram when Moore gushed about his band, posting a photo with the caption: “Real excited about this one. Have a feeling it’s going to be the soundtrack of my summer.”

Confessing how it led to her lover, Moore told People in 2017, “Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me. We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Thanks Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!” She also told Glamour in 2018, “I was still dealing with the trauma of my divorce when we started dating [and] Taylor was steadfast in his support.” The two said, “I do!” on November 18, 2018 in an intimate backyard wedding at Mandy's home.

A love for the ages

After exchanging vows, their love has only grown stronger. Professing his love, Goldsmith called Moore “the bravest, baddest, bestest wife a guy could ever dream of,” and added, “I love you more and more with each moment I get to spend in your presence […] Your kindness and wisdom truly know no bounds. I’m so stoked I get to know you forever. Thanks for hanging out with me.”

Now, the couple is expecting their first child and Moore told Glamour in an interview, “He’s going to be the most tremendous father” and admitted, “I view the past as a stepping-stone to get me where I am today. I would gladly weather all of that a million times over if it brought me to Taylor again.” Due this year, Moore keeps sharing news about their baby boy in sweet posts while cradling her baby bump.


The pregnant actress recently recorded a duet with her hubby in her lavish plush pad. Located high on a hill in Pasadena, California, the house is reportedly blessed with scintillating views and lush green gardens. “We fell in love with the views, the pool, the yard, basically the whole energy of the place,” she told Architectural Digest.

If a Gossip Gist report is to be believed, Goldsmith has an estimated net worth of $10 million and Mandy Moore is worth $14 million.
