Mandy Moore is pregnant with her second child, which has made it difficult for her to continue her live touring schedule. The star announced Tuesday that she is canceling her remaining show dates this year to focus on her health during her pregnancy.
“When we booked these shows, I wasn’t pregnant and although I truly thought I could power through, the way we are traveling (long hours on the bus and not getting proper rest) has caught up, taken its toll, and make it feel too challenging to proceed,” Moore wrote in a statement posted to Instagram. “I know that I have to put my family and my health (and the health of my baby) first and the best place for me to be right now is at home.”
Earlier this month, Moore announced she is expecting baby No. 2 with husband Taylor Goldsmith. The singer-actress announced the happy news in an Instagram post Friday with a picture of son Gus wearing a “big brother” T-shirt. “One incredibly seminal chapter of my life just ended and the next one, as a mother of two, is about to start… and are we ever so deeply grateful and excited,” she captioned the sweet photo. “Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 coming this fall!”
The This Is Us alum and Goldsmith married in November 2018. The couple announced in February 2021 that they had welcomed their first child together, August Harrison Goldsmith.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that published last month and was pegged to her NBC drama series signing off after six seasons, Moore said she was planning to figure out what’s next for her career after she completed her tour.
“We’re going on tour for a couple of weeks and will have a fun summer, and then I think I’ll sit down and say, ‘What do I want to do that I won’t just constantly compare to this last experience?'” she told THR at the time. “I’m excited to find something completely different and challenging in a way that I didn’t get with This Is Us.”
