‘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… so it was settled very early on in our book,’ Mandy said. 

‘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.’

She added: ‘I can’t wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day.’ 

Mandy and Taylor, a musician, tied the knot in November 2018 after three years together.
