Will any Pearson sibling actors share a birthday with Baby Moore?
In total, there are three sets of actors who play “The Big 3” on This Is Us (not including the infant and toddler stars). That said, could Moore’s baby-to-be arrive on or near any of their birthdays?
The youngest trio includes Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates, and Lonnie Chavis. Hancsicsak and Chavis have fall birthdays on Aug. 22 and Nov. 23, respectively. Bates, however, has a March 1 birthday which technically falls under an “early 2021” birthdate.
The teen versions of the Pearson brood includes Niles Fitch, Hannah Zeile, and Logan Shroyer. Fitch is a July 12 baby, while Zeile was born on Nov. 7, and Shroyer is also a March baby, born on the 10th.
As for the adult Randall, Kevin, and Kate Pearson stars, Justin Hartley (Kevin) might have the biggest chance at sharing a birthday with baby Moore. He was born on Jan. 29. Sterling K. Brown (Randall) celebrates on April 5, and Chrissy Metz (Kate) claims a Sept. 29 birthday.
