The 33-year-old actress is currently engaged to her partner Taylor Goldsmith, and despite the musician having only popped the question two months ago, Mandy is already thinking about getting the nuptials out of the way as she doesn’t feel the need to “wait” for too long.
She said: “It’ll happen sooner rather than later. I’m not in any rush, but also I’m like, ‘I wanna do it’. I don’t need to wait, I don’t need to have a long engagement. I’m not planning some giant, lavish affair. So, I might as well just do it.”
Mandy admitted she would love to start a family with Taylor once they’ve tied the knot, but claims her role on TV drama ‘This Is Us’ – in which she plays a mother – hasn’t taught her anything about parenthood, as the children on the show have their own parents to look after them.
When asked if starring in the NBC drama has affected her views on having children, Mandy said: “I have always known that I wanted to be a mother, hopefully. Hopefully that’s on the cards for me. But I feel like I haven’t learned too much from the show, except that I love being around children of any age. But whenever they get fussy, or do something that is naughty, mom and dad are standing in the wings ready to take them away. You know, feed them or change them or anything so I get the best part of parenting and none of the grunt work. So I don’t think I’ve learned any valuable lessons.”
The ’47 Meters Down’ actress and the Dawes musician have been dating for two years after they got in touch with one another via social media app Instagram, and Mandy says her advice to anyone looking for love on the internet is to not be “afraid”.
Speaking to E! News, she said: “I mean, I guess don’t be afraid to put yourself out there? Because that’s kind of what I did. I didn’t know the rules of social media. I didn’t tag him, you know, as you do in a photograph now. I didn’t do any of those things and lo and behold, like, he happened to find what I said about him and his band and that’s what led us to meeting one other.”
