Mandy Moore revealed she felt like an “absolute shell of herself,” overwhelmed by life on the road, prior to canceling her latest music tour.
“I didn’t know I was pregnant when we planned the tour,” the singer told Today Parents in an interview published on the show’s website on Wednesday.
The “This Is Us” actor said she was convinced she could “power through” the planned performances. But being pregnant, having a toddler, and living on a tour bus proved too much.

“It was like trying to sleep on a wooden rollercoaster,” she said. “Gus would be standing up in his Pack N’ Play while the bus was shaking — and I was like, ‘No, no, no. We can’t do this anymore.’”
“I was scared I was going to adversely affect my [unborn] baby and his growth,” the entertainer added, explaining she and her bandmates were running on limited sleep.
So, Moore said she made the difficult decision to call off her tour last month.
“Every pregnancy is different,” the actor said. “This time, I was caring for a toddler. I was walking around feeling like an absolute shell of myself.”
