"We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined. M + T."

Mandy announced her pregnancy in September, posting a series of images of her growing baby bump, writing: "Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021."

The actress, who stars as Rebecca Pearson in the hit NBC series, married Taylor, the singer for the band Dawes, in 2018 after dating him for two years.

Speaking previously about her desire to start a family with him, Mandy told Glamour: "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."
