    Mandy Moore’s mother-in-law was “insulted” when the actress first told her she was pregnant, as she called her “grandma” before she broke the news

    The 36-year-old actress is currently expecting her first child with her husband Taylor Goldsmith, and has said she accidentally offended her mother-in-law when she told her about their impending arrival, as she thought Mandy was just trying to tell her she was old


    Mandy explained: “My parents, we broke the news via Zoom, which was lovely but not the way you had sort of built up in your brain. But my in-laws live very close to us and it was my mother-in-law’s birthday and we decided, like, this is the perfect birthday gift for her. We were gonna give her a picture of the ultrasound.

    “So we gave her a gift and we were like, ‘Open your card at the end.’ The card just said, ‘Happy birthday, grandma!’ And she read the card and was like, ‘Oh, thanks.’ [She was] a little insulted, I think, that we were calling her grandma.”

    But things turned around when the ‘This Is Us’ star pulled out an ultrasound picture to help explain the situation, which left the grandmother-to-be “beside herself with excitement”.

    She added during an appearance on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’: “I’ve never heard a human being make the sound that she made. It was, like, a cry and a scream, an exasperation. I was very worried that she was going to have a heart attack. I’m like, ‘Kathy, you’ve got to breathe! It’s good news! It’s happy news!’ She was just so beside herself with excitement.”

    Mandy first announced that she and Taylor were expecting a son in September with a series of black-and-white photos.
