‘I think a show that celebrates family to this degree certainly makes you think about your own family, and you know, I am going to be getting married soon, and definitely just thinking about the bigger, more macro picture of it,’ she told DailyMailTV correspondent Alicia Quarles on Monday, while celebrating her new magazine cover with DuJour Media CEO Jason Binn at TAO in New York.
‘Will you be a mom?’ Alicia asked.
‘Yeah, for sure! I mean, not right now, but sooner rather then later! That has me absolutely thinking about it,’ she replied.
Mandy plays mom-of-three Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us, a critically-acclaimed show that was the recipient of this year’s Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Starring on a show with an uplifting message is a point of pride for Mandy.
‘I feel proud to be apart of something that’s ultimately uplifting and unifying, and really celebrates what connects us more than what divides us,’ she explained.
The show has a devoted fan base, and Mandy has been receiving ‘overwhelmingly’ positive response from viewers on social media.
‘I think in this day and age we all have the ability to connect with and have conversations with anybody at any given time, and it’s nice to be able to dip your toe into that,’ she said of connecting with fans on social media.
‘Obviously it can be somewhat dangerous, you’re opening yourself up to criticism and all that, but you take the good with the bad and overwhelmingly people are lovely and really supportive of me and the show, so I tend to focus more on that.’
Season three of This Is Us airs tonight on NBC.
