The show This Is Us is filled with some amazing on-screen couples. However, the cast’s current (and former) off-screen girlfriends, wives, boyfriends, and husbands are even more interesting.
Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith – engaged
This Is Us fans are familiar with Rebecca’s on-screen romance with Jack Pearson, but off-screen, Mandy Moore has a different man in her life. In September 2017 the happy news that Mandy and her boyfriend Taylor Goldsmith got engaged was announced.
Taylor, like Mandy, is a musician and is in the indie rock groups Dawes, Middle Brother, and The New Basement Tapes. The couple has proven to have quite the adventurous relationship, and just climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro in Africa! We’re so happy for Mandy that she finally found her Prince Charming!
Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe – married
Sterling K. Brown, who plays an adult Randall Pearson in the series, is known as a loving and dedicated husband to his on-screen partner Beth.

You may remember her from the first season of This Is Us as Yvette, the mother of 10-year-old Randall’s friend who Rebecca meets at the local pool.
Sterling and Ryan have been happily married since 2007, and are the parents of two adorable boys. The vibe must have been interesting on set, with Sterling and Ryan Michelle both having on screen spouses, and then returning to each other when there’s a break.
Milo Ventimiglia and Kelly Egarian – rumored
Milo Ventimiglia has been setting the bar pretty high for fathers and husbands out there with his portrayal of Jack Pearson. With TV crush status like his, it is no wonder why fans are eager to know who he is dating.
Although he has been keeping his relationship status pretty private, he did bring his rumored girlfriend, marketing coordinator Kelly Egarian, as his date to the 2017 Emmys. Although they didn’t walk the red carpet together, they did sit side by side and were seen kissing and dancing during the after-party.
Alexandra Breckenridge and Casey Hooper – married
In the series, Alexandra Breckenridge plays Sophie aka the love of Kevin Pearson’s life and the one whom he lets get away. Luckily, Alexandra seems to be doing pretty well on her own without Kev, as she got married to guitarist Casey Hooper back in 2015.
The dashing couple are now the proud parents to their two children, a one-and-a-half-year-old boy named Jack, and a baby girl named Billie whom they welcomed in December 2017.
