Mandy Moore reveals mom, brothers are gay — why she loves 'least traditional' family

At 32 years old, Mandy Moore has been married, divorced and she hasn't started a family of her own — at least not yet. And she's just fine with all of that.

In fact, in a new interview, the "This is Us" star explains that she's never felt any pressure to lead a traditional family life, because she grew up in a family that she calls "the least traditional" ever.

Mandy Moore arrives at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016.

"I’ve never really talked about this," she said in a chat with Byrdie, “but my parents are divorced. My mother left my father for a woman. And both of my two brothers are gay."

Despite her parents' split, Moore said they "loved each other," and most importantly, "they did an incredible job raising all of us."

Looking back at her past marriage to singer-songwriter Ryan Adams when she was just 24, Moore believes that she may have been trying to craft her "own kind of normalcy" at the time.

But she prefers the normal she and family now know.

It's not a holiday without these gems. 🦃
