Singer and actress Mandy Moore has given a heartfelt interview, opening up about her lesbian mother and two gay brothers.

The Tangled star revealed last year that she comes from ‘the least traditional’ family.

In an interview with Byrdie, Moore said: “I’ve never really talked about this, but my parents are divorced. My mother left my father for a woman. And both of my two brothers are gay.”

In a new interview with People magazine, the actress and singer reflected on her family life and how they are all “extraordinarily close,” especially after her mother and brothers came out.

Moore said: “Nobody is hiding who they are. There are no secrets in our lives.”

“I love and support my mom and my brothers with my whole heart. And nothing makes me happier than seeing anybody live their authentic self and to choose love.”

She added: “If anyone can find love, I support it, I salute you, and I celebrate that.”

Moore is currently co-starring in the hit US show ‘This is Us’ which has been praised for it’s honest and varied portrayals of LGBT+ people.
