Mandy Moore is celebrating motherhood!

The This Is Us actress, 39, marked Mother's Day with an Instagram post on Sunday, May 12, showing several mother-child moments between herself and sons Oscar "Ozzie," 18 months, and Augustus "Gus," 3, whom she shares with husband Taylor Goldsmith.

She kicked off the carousel post with a shot of her two boys sitting side by side on a playground. She followed it up with a few more photos of the brothers playing and even cuddling together under the same blanket.

The actress also shared her own special moments with the boys, including a snap of her hugging one of the boys to her chest and laughing with Gus in her arms. She also included a sweet photo giving one of her sons a big hug as she bent down, as well as a mirror selfie capturing her laughing with Ozzie.

"Cheers to all those who mother," Moore captioned the post. "I salute you today and always (especially my mom, stepmom, mother in law and community of mom friends I stand in awe of). It’s the greatest club and truly the most exhausting and exhilarating job I’ve ever been lucky enough to get to do. Thanks to Gus and Oz for choosing me."

She then thanked Gus and Ozzie "for choosing me" and also sent a shout-out to people who may be having a hard time this holiday, writing: "Extra love to those who find today difficult for any and all reasons. I see you. 💙🩵."

In February, Moore celebrated Gus' third birthday with an adorable Instagram Reel that featured photos of her son throughout the years.

"3! How in the world has time flown so fast? You amaze us in every way, Goosey," she began her caption.

"Your smile lights up every room, your curiosity about the world around you evolves daily, your obsession with construction vehicles continues to grow with a fervor, your tender heart and love for your family, including your brother (in between clocking him with a random toy of course) melts us…. We are so lucky."

"Thank you for the greatest gift of being your mom. Cheers to more laughs, trucks and gummies, my sweet boy. We 💓 you!!! Happy Birthday!!" Moore added

In December, Moore shared that her son Gus has no interest in the fact that his mom voiced the character of Rapunzel in Tangled while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

"He couldn't have cared less," the Dr. Death star told host Jimmy Fallon of her son's disinterest in the 2010 animated musical film.

"He's like, 'You're not Lightning McQueen.' There's no Cars situation," she went on, noting Gus' preference for the Pixar film series and protagonist voiced by Owen Wilson.

"I have asked him several times. I'm like, 'You've seen Frozen now — do you want to watch Tangled?' He's like, 'No,' " Moore said, laughing. "It means nothing to him!"
