Singer-actress Mandy Moore says she feels comfortable sharing her happiness with her rocker fiancé Ryan Adams because he is secure in himself.
“That’s what it is all about,” Moore, 24, says on Friday’s The Bonnie Hunt Show. “You have to be complete first and foremost yourself.”
Moore, who has been dating Adams, 34, off-and-on for about a year, revealed this week that they are engaged. No wedding date has been announced.
On the talk show, host Hunt congratulates Moore. “Thank you,” she replies. “I appreciate it. I am very happy.” – Mike Fleeman
