Mandy Moore may become a mom sooner than we think.
"I always wanted to be a mom," the actress, who plays mother of three Rebecca Pearson on the Emmy-winning NBC drama, tells Geist in a preview of the interview. "I think I was waiting for the right person and the right time, for that to sort of coincide."
"I think (motherhood is) definitely the next chapter for me — sooner rather than later," said the 33-year-old star.
Naturally, Moore would have to take into account her busy "This Is Us" schedule. "I've got to figure it out with the show, and how I can kind of time it out correctly, but, yeah, I'm excited," she said.
But, Geist pointed out, if the show's producers are able to have Moore time-travel through several decades to play her character at multiple ages, surely concealing her pregnancy would be a snap.
"They can (digitally) alter my body," Moore said laughing, as she brainstormed ideas. "I can hold a lot of bags or, like, shopping baskets or something in front of me."
