‘Enjoy every breath of this new chapter! This young man is destined to brighten the world up,’ concluded the That 70s Show star. 

Mandy and Wilmer famously dated from 2000 until 2002, but, instead of parting ways for good, the pair have remained close friends over the years. 

Moore left a congratulatory comment for Valderrama on Monday as he used Instagram to reveal that his fiancee Amanda Pacheco had given birth to their first child, a daughter, on February 15.

‘Gus is here,’ she wrote. ‘Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents.

‘We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined,’ concluded the star, followed by her and Taylor’s first initials.

‘It was last August when @taylordawesgoldsmith and I found out we were having a boy (it’s also Taylor’s birth month) and we always loved the name,’ she revealed in her caption. 

‘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’t wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day,’ Moore concluded.

Moore revealed in September that she and Goldsmith, who she wed in 2018, were having a baby boy – the first child for both of them. 

Often using social media to open up about her pregnancy journey, Mandy previously admitted that she felt fortunate to have been pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic because she had been suffering with bad morning sickness but was able to cope with the pregnancy side effect because she was at home and not working.

In November, she shared: ‘I don’t know how women do it. I literally woke up and was sick all day long. I couldn’t eat, I lost a bunch of weight. I just stayed in bed all day. But luckily, I know that’s not the case for everybody, that it sometimes can persevere for the entire pregnancy.’
