Us confirmed last week that Moore, 33, and Goldsmith are engaged after two years of dating. The future spouses got together following Moore’s divorce from Ryan Adams.

The NBC cast — also including Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown and Chris Sullivan — all attended the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in L.A. on Sunday. Hartley, who is also set to wed, brought his fiancée, Chrishell Stause, as his plus-one.

“I respect her immensely, and appreciate her company, and love her opinions on things,” Hartley, 40, gushed to Us about his bride-to-be. “I learn from her everyday, and she makes me better, I think. So I hope she would say the same thing. I think she would.”

This Is Us returns for season 2 on Tuesday, September 26. “I feel like it’s a good show that has heart. It’s not preachy, but our show has character,” Hartley told Us. “It’s basically a show about the people that watch our show. I’m just impressed with people’s hearts, and how kind people are, and how responsive they’ve been to a show that is about people trying to get by, and trying to do the best they can.”

As for how he would describe season 2 if it was an emoji? “My emoji would be like Michael Phelps crying in a swimming pool, but winning the race,” adding that he doesn’t “even know what that means.”
