Congratulations is in order. Overnight, Emma Roberts confirmed that she is expecting her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund. The 29-year-old actress surprised fans on Instagram with a pregnancy announcement and a gender reveal when she uploaded a photo of herself and Hedlund, captioning the image “Me… and my two favourite guys”.
Sitting in a sun filled room and wearing a white ribbed dress, the Scream Queens star cradled her baby bump and laughed with Hedlund. The post drew over 2 million likes and many comments from friends and fans congratulating and wishing the couple well, including one from her Aunty, Julia Roberts who kept it short and sweet with a simple “Love you”.
It’s not certain how far along Roberts’ is in her pregnancy but rumours began to circle after a report from Us Weekly in late June when her mum accidentally spilled the beans. Nonetheless she already has the mum-to-be glow and the maternity dressing perfected.
Hedlund and Roberts first dated in March 2019 when they were photographed holding hands in Silver Lake, but were said to be keeping things “casual”. It came after the break up of fiancé of ICON cover star, Evan Peters, during the same time period.
