During a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday, Milo Ventimiglia revealed that costar Mandy Moore recently brought her son, August "Gus" Harrison, whom she welcomed with husband Taylor Goldsmith on Feb. 20., to the set of the hit NBC series.

"Baby Gus was on set the other day, last week, and it was exciting," said Ventimiglia, who plays Jack Pearson, husband of Moore's Rebecca Pearson, in the beloved show, currently in its fifth season.

Ventimiglia previously praised Moore back in February just before she welcomed baby Gus, now 6 weeks old, previously telling PEOPLE, "We're all excited. She's ready, she's ready to go. And what a champion she is. She really wanted to work right up until the birth date and get through as much as we could."

"It's exciting to know that she and Taylor are going to be parents," the Gilmore Girls alum added of Moore, 36, and Goldsmith, 35. "Those are the kind of people you want to be parents. They're just good people, solid people. I think they're going to have a good kid."
