Mandy Moores latest baby photo is giving me all the feels!
If there’s one person in the television industry who seems like the real deal, it’s Mandy Moore. I imagine her childhood to be filled with marshmallows and unicorns. She just seems so down home sweet.
Her adult life seems to be going pretty great, too. She has a hit television series (This is Us). A brand new home. Her first album in a decade. A talented (and based on everything she says on IG), good husband. And a brand new baby, too.
Girl is living in high cotton, as they say in the South. I’m divided between hashtag happy for her, and hashtag jealous.
Out of all her success the picture that sums up the meaning of love, life and family is this one. Her little guy smiling back at his daddy. Warning: it’ll melt your heart.
If that photo doesn’t do it for you, the next one is sure to. According to Mandys post.The couple named their baby boy early on in her pregnancy. In true “this is us” fashion, the way she got to that name is in a very Hallmark moment kind of way.
It was last August when @taylordawesgoldsmith and I found out we’re having a boy (it’s also Taylor’s birth month) and we always loved the name…so it was settled very early on in our book. Then for our anniversary in November, T gifted me with this blanket with the “A” (for Amanda) made from extra material from my wedding dress and “T” (for Taylor) from his wedding shirt. Felt like a very fitting amalgamation of our whole story. I can wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day. 💙💙💙💙
I can’t believe it but it’s been 24 years since Jennifer Lopez captivated audiences with her performance of Selena Quintanilla-Perez in the movie, Selena.
Selena is the story of the short-lived life of music sensation Selena and her family, but it’s also a painful reminder that money can change those around you.
Selena was shot dead by a trusted family friend and business associate March 31, 1990. The murder and the aftermath played out on the news like a Lifetime movie. The root of the murder was money. (Of course)
Lopez earned a million dollars for her portrayal of Selena making her the first latin to earn over a million dollars for a film.
She deserved it. I can’t imagine anyone else who could have successfully represented Selena like Lopez did.
Selena taught Lopez how to perform
There’s no denying Selena helped make Lopez the star that she is, today—and the performer, too. I think Selena change the trajectory of Lopez’ career. She went from fly girl on In Living Color to JLO.
I had learned how to really become a performer and give everything I had to the audience.

The following are Instagram posts made my Jennifer Lopez in memory of the 24th anniversary of Selena.
