All About Taylor Goldsmith, Mandy Moore’s Musician Husband

On This is Us, Mandy Moore played one half of TV’s favorite couple, Rebecca and Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia). But the actress also enjoys a loving relationship offscreen. In November 2018, Moore married musician Taylor Goldsmith in a backyard Los Angeles ceremony. Fast-forward to 2024, and the couple is expecting their third child together.

Below, some more facts about Goldsmith and his love story with Moore.

He’s the lead singer of indie band The Dawes

You may recognize Goldsmith from the indie rock band, The Dawes. He fronts the group, which has released eight albums. Goldsmith can even count Moore’s This is Us co-star Chris Sullivan as a fan. During a guest appearance on Busy Tonight, the actor confessed, “I’ve fallen in love with Mandy Moore’s husband. We’re having a real bromance…He and I bonded over music, he’s the lead singer of a band called Dawes. As soon as we met I bought all of their records. He’s producing my next record.”

Moore and Goldsmith met through Instagram

Like many modern romances, Moore and Goldsmith’s began via Instagram. In May 2015, Moore outed herself as a Dawes fan on social media, sharing a picture of their album with the caption, “Real excited about this one. Have a feeling it’s going to be the soundtrack of my summer. #Dawes #rightontime.” The Emmy nominee later told People, “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!”

He and Moore have worked on music together

In June 2019, both singers began sharing snaps of the couple in the recording studio. On September 17, she released the debut single off of her first album since 2009, which she’s worked on with her husband. Previously, Moore has been open about how her 7-year marriage to musician Ryan Adams stunted her ability to make music. This time, Moore told People that the experience of collaborating with Goldsmith as her partner was quite special:

I was singing in the booth last night. I looked over, and he had his eyes closed, playing the guitar. I thought there’s nothing cooler than being able to collaborate in this sort of setting with somebody you love, trust and respect, in the way that I respect him. He’s the most talented; having him grace any music that I’m a part of is always a treat.

Goldsmith has written a song for This Is Us

The couple regularly supports each other’s careers and have even worked together before. Goldsmith co-wrote the song “Invisible Ink,” an original song Moore’s character Rebecca sings on season 3 of This Is Us. In addition to penning a tune for the hit series, the pair performed the song together during an Emmy FYC event in Hollywood.

Similarly, Moore has played a role in Goldsmith’s musical career (other than undoubtedly inspiring a few love songs). In 2017, the actress appeared in the music video for the Dawes song, “Rolling With The Punches.”

This couple is stronger than ever and happy to show it

Since marrying in 2018, this couple seems to be totally in love. On Instagram, they’ve shared experiences, including traveling the world, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, and renovating a home in Pasadena, California, together. Moore told Glamour in October 2018, “I was still dealing with the trauma of my divorce when we started dating. Taylor was steadfast in his support—that was a huge sign for me. He makes me melt. I can imagine no better partner.” She added that her sights were set on the future. “He’s going to be the most tremendous father. 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.”

On April 10, 2024, Goldsmith gave Moore an adoring tribute for her milestone 40th birthday. He wrote on Instagram, “It’s my favorite human being’s birthday today. Thanks for showing me and everyone else we know how to live life with such kindness, grace, intention, and selflessness (sometimes too a fault—lemme clean up the boy’s dinner while YOU watch the first 10 minutes of Cars for a change). There’s no way I’ll ever be able to properly pay you back for the love, the joy and the meaning you’ve brought to my life. But I’ll never stop trying. I love you so much it hurts. I hope this birthday is the absolute best one yet. And I’m sorry Gus keeps wishing me a happy birthday instead of you.”

Moore and Goldsmith are parents to two children and are expecting their third in 2024

On May 31, 2024, Moore announced her third pregnancy on Instagram in a joint post with Goldsmith. She wrote, “Sometimes life imitates art. The third in our own Big Three coming soon. Can’t wait for these boys to have a baby sister. 💓💓💓”

Moore and Goldsmith had their first child, son August, on Feb. 20, 2021. They had their second boy, Oscar, on Oct. 20, 2023.

Goldsmith reflected on parenting with Moore and his awe for his partner in his 2024 Mother’s Day post. “Happy Mother’s Day to my incredible wife,” he wrote. “It’s the hardest job there is, and you are the best at it. And thanks for booking all the doctor and dentist appointments. I love you.”
