As for Mandy and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, they grew their family to three earlier this year. She shared after Gus’ birth, “We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined.”
In March, Mandy, 37, spoke on the Informed Pregnancy Podcast and compared her all-night birth experience to an acid trip.
“It’s like you’re on this trip. You’re on this like acid trip or something. Like, I was in my own head, doing my own thing. I could hear people—I could hear suggestions and sometimes agree with them,” the Tangled actress recalled.
“Ultimately, it was such an insular experience, which sounds silly that I guess I didn’t really imagine it,” she continued. “I felt like it was going to be somewhat more participatory with other people, that I would see their faces and be awake and alert and like, listen to their suggestions.”
Once she had August in her arms, Mandy said she was “smothered” with love, adding, “I have never felt higher, I have never felt this kind of love. It was like the world stopped again and you’re not aware of anything else going on.”
She’s even excited to have another kid sometime soon. “I remember sitting there going like, ‘I can’t wait to do this again.’ Probably mental,” Mandy joked.
