Mandy Moore was “super sick” at the beginning of her pregnancy
The ‘This Is Us’ star is currently expecting her first child, a son, with her husband Taylor Goldsmith, and has said that whilst she feels “very lucky” to be pregnant, she recalled being “really sick” at the start of her first trimester, which caused her to “lose a bunch of weight”

Speaking to ‘The Jess Cagle Show’ on SiriusXM, she explained: “I feel very lucky. I was really sick in the beginning. I was super sick, but I was home. So, you know, there was, I didn’t have to miss out on work. I don’t know how women do it. I literally woke up and was sick all day long. I couldn’t eat, I lost a bunch of weight. I just like, I just stayed in bed all day.

“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, but, um, but beyond that, I feel like I had my energy back and feeling good. Like, yeah, Nope, no complaints.”
Mandy, 36, recently said she is “so excited” to give birth to her son, as she displayed her baby bump in public at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards last weekend.
As she accepted her award for the Drama TV Star of 2020 for her role as Rebecca Pearson in ‘This Is Us’, she said: "To the love of my life Taylor, I'm so excited to bring this baby boy into the world with you. This has been a challenging year for everybody so lets please keep each other safe. Let's continue to wear masks, socially distance, wash your hands and be kind to one another.”
Meanwhile, Mandy also said she feels “prepared” for motherhood thanks to her role in the NBC drama, as her character is a mother of three.
She explained: "Playing a matriarch of a family for the last five years and getting to see children at various different chapters and stages, I feel like I'm as pseudo-prepared as I can be. I’ve had babies and toddlers and adult children [on the show], so I've gotten a pretty good taste and lay of the land.”
