Mandy Moore wants to have children ''sooner rather than later''.

The 33-year-old actress is engaged to musician Taylor Goldsmith, who popped the question just three months ago, but the brunette beauty is already thinking about starting a brood with her fiancé.

Asked about the prospect of becoming a mother, Mandy told Shape magazine: ''If you were to tell me two years ago that I'd be talking about my life in this way with you, I would have said that you were crazy.

''And we can start a family, hopefully sooner rather than later, and establish our own traditions.''

Since becoming engaged, the 'This Is Us' star - who was previously married to musician Ryan Adams for seven years until 2016 - says her life has changed beyond belief.

The pair are currently renovating their house, and she can't wait to finally move in with her man.

She said: ''My life has changed exponentially in that short time.

I moved out of a home that I had lived in for 14 years. I started a new relationship.

''I'm on a show that changed everything for me.

My man and I found a house and are doing renovations.

''When we move, I'll feel like I finally have a place to hang my hat. We can set up the record player! I'll know where my brown sweater is!''

The '47 Meters Down' star and the Dawes singer have been dating for two years after they got in touch with one another via social media app Instagram, and Mandy previously said her advice to anyone looking for love on the internet is to not be ''afraid''.

She said: ''I mean, I guess don't be afraid to put yourself out there? Because that's kind of what I did. I didn't know the rules of social media. I didn't tag him, you know, as you do in a photograph now. I didn't do any of those things and lo and behold, like, he happened to find what I said about him and his band and that's what led us to meeting one other.''
