This Is Gus! The Sweetest Photos of Mandy Moore & Taylor Goldsmith's Baby Boy, August
The couple welcomed their first child together, son August Harrison, on Feb. 20, 2021
Welcome to the World
Moore announced her son's arrival with a sweet Instagram post, captioning a photo of her son in a pale blue onesie, "Gus is here 💙💙💙💙. Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith."
Moore wrote of her son, born on Feb. 20, "He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents. We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined."
What's In a Name
Days after his birth, Moore revealed the sweet meaning behind her baby boy's name. "It was last August when @taylordawesgoldsmith and I found out we were having a boy (it’s also Taylor’s birth month) and we always loved the name... so it was settled very early on in our book."
Moore shared a photo of her son's baby blanket, explaining the sweet sentiment behind it and revealing that it was a gift from her husband. She wrote, "For our anniversary in November, T gifted me with this blanket with the 'A' (for Amanda) made from extra material from my wedding dress and 'T' (for Taylor) from his wedding shirt. Felt like a very fitting amalgamation of our whole story. I can’t wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day. 💙💙💙💙."

Moments with Mom
Gus snuggled up with his mom, who shared the moment in a sweet Instagram Story captioned, "Doesn't get any better."
"Inside jokes with this little guy for over 3 weeks," Moore shared alongside a photo smiling with Gus.
Gus celebrated his one month birthday with "a little tummy time and some Roger Miller."
"Twins," Moore simply captioned a shot of her little guy smiling up at Dad.
Moore's "fav part of every day" is getting some snuggles from her baby boy!
"He may be @taylordawesgoldsmith’s twin but he sure does love a bath, just like his mama," Moore captioned a photo of her son smiling in the tub.
Mommy and Me
Goldsmith shared a new photo of his wife and their son in honor of Moore's 37th birthday.
"It's this Supermom’s birthday today. The nucleus of the family. The one who knows exactly what she wants our future to look like and then makes it a reality. The one who is mothering a 7 week old, is back working again, and somehow still makes each of her animals feel individually loved and looked after. Love becomes a bigger word every day I’m in your orbit. I love you more than I know how to say. Happy Birthday @mandymooremm," he wrote.
Mandy Moore introduced baby Gus to Hilary Duff's 5-week-old baby girl Mae, saying that the big moment was a "love story for the ages."
Sing, Baby, Sing!
"2 months old and loving dad’s guitar riffage 🎶 #thisisgus," Moore captioned a video of Gus cooing along to his dad playing guitar.
