Due to a rare blood disorder, Mandy Moore plans an unmedicated birth ...

Mandy Moore announced her participation in the 2 under 2 club and the birth of her second child. While doubling the number of little ones to care for may engulf any parent, Moore recently revealed some new difficulties with her birth plan.

The star of Today Is Us discussed an autoimmune condition called immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), which means she cannot receive an epidural during labor. "My platelets are too low for an epidural," Moore said.

Moore, who has a 17-month-old son Gus with her husband and musician Taylor Goldsmith, has gone this route before. She also delivered her first child without medication. "I can do it one more time. I can climb that mountain."

"I wish medication was an option, because the thought of it being on the table is so nice. But we'll just go forth as we did the previous time," she said.

Moore shared the news of her second son on Instagram with a super-cute picture of her firstborn wearing a big brother T-shirt. We are all so grateful and grateful for this momentous occasion. Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 will be released this autumn. Xo, the Emmy winner

Moore has had to take a step back and make the difficult decision to cancel her tour the first time since she announced her pregnancy.

I hate taking my tiny corner to talk about my own life, but your kindness and compassion have meant a lot to her, she captioned the Instagram announcement that she was putting a halt to her tour. It's also difficult to admit that you can't always do everything at the same time.

She continued:

Moore's fans are certain to appreciate that she is willing to share the difficult moments and difficult decisions that mothers must face and make. With an unmedicated labor on the way and two little boys soon taking over the house, she'll surely have her hands full. Hopefully the joy and chaos will also provide some pretty great inspiration for her next album and tour.
