And in an emotional Instagram post, she shared the beautiful meaning behind her son’s name – August.

“Gus is here. Our sweet boy, August Harrison Goldsmith. He was punctual and arrived right on his due date, much to the delight of his parents," Mandy wrote in an announcement post earlier this week.

"We were prepared to fall in love in all sorts of brand-new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined."

And now, the Princess Diaries star has detailed why she chose the gorgeous name.

Alongside a sweet snap of her son’s precious blanket, she penned: “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.

“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.”
