Mandy Moore's Epic Spin on the #DropChallenge Is One of the Best Things You'll See Today

Mandy Moore is putting her own spin on the viral drop challenge—and moms can definitely relate.

On Instagram this week, the This Is Us star shared a fun clip of herself doing the TikTok challenge (in case you're unfamiliar, it involves dropping into a squat while Beyoncé's song, "Partition," plays in the background). In Moore's version, though, the mom demonstrates how often she has to "drop" down to pick up her son Gus's things, all thanks to the toddler's penchant for tossing toys and utensils. In the caption, she wrote, "We’re dropping more than baby toys, spoons and avocados!"

Referring to the release of her newest album, the actress continued, "'In Real Life' drops tomorrow!! RSVP to be the first to see the art. #dropchallenge."

Hundreds of impressed fans took to the comments to praise Moore for her creative take on the challenge. One follower wrote, "Get it mama, this is the best one yet [because] it’s soo accurate." Another added, "Just think how many squats in a day!"

The playful post comes just two weeks after Moore and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, celebrated their son's first birthday. To mark the special occasion, the couple held a blue-themed outdoor kids party with close friends. Moore shared a few highlights on her IG feed and wrote, "1st birthday party was a hit! Making memories and so full of love and cake. #thisisgus."

Goldsmith also shared a sweet tribute, featuring a clip of Gus eating his food. He captioned the post, "1ST BIRTHDAY!!!! THANKS FOR BEING THE COOLEST GUY I KNOW, GUS! I don’t think I can put into words what this last year has meant to me and how much I love this little human…. Happy Birthday Goose. Sorry you don’t know what that means yet. Can’t wait to watch you faceplant a cake today."

Kudos to Gus for inspiring his mama to master the drop challenge.
