Congratulations are in order for Mandy Moore who has welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with husband Taylor Goldsmith.

Fans will be well aware that the actress is back on our TV screens in This Is Us Season 5, in which she stars as the show's matriarch, Rebecca Pearson.

Sharing news of her son's arrival on Instagram on Tuesday, Mandy revealed her son had arrived bang on his due date in a sweet post. "He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents," she wrote.

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

More from woman&home:

The couple have named their first child August Harrison Goldsmith – the same first name as Princess Eugenie's baby boy and middle name as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son, Archie. It looks like this new arrival will be called Gus for short. Adorable!

Don't know about you, but we predict that we're going to see a whole lot more babies called August after these two famous faces opted for the name.

Huge congratulations again to the couple!
