Mandy Moore & Hilary Duff Just Introduced Their Newborns & Had a Special Playdate

Mandy Moore and Hilary Duff are playing cupid with their newborns. The This Is Us actress recently set up a playdate for her son, Gus, and the Younger star's daughter, Mae.

Over the weekend, Moore introduced her 2-month-old son to Duff's 5-week-old daughter. Lucky for us, the two mothers documented the get-together on their personal social media accounts. Moore shared a pic on her IG Story (which is no longer available), featuring the two babies laying next to each other on a blanket. Unfortunately, Mae was crying. But the snap was adorable nonetheless.

“When August met Mae: a love story for the ages,” Moore captioned the shot. Duff also shared the same image on her account, writing, “On the lookout for a fall and winter friend…”


ICYMI: Moore and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, welcomed her first child back in February. The 36-year-old actress shared the exciting news with a photo, featuring her son in a blue onesie alongside a heartfelt caption. “Gus is here,” Moore captioned the post, slyly revealing the newborn’s nickname.

Duff and her husband, Matthew Koma, welcomed her second child a few weeks later. She posted a lovely family photo to her Instagram, where she wrote, "Mae James Bair- We LOVE you beauty 3-24-21 @laurenguilfordbirths."

Since then, the new mothers have consistently filled our feeds with quality baby content. And hopefully, they’ll continue to provide us with BTS playdate footage.
