Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund welcomed their first baby, a boy, on December 27, who they have named Rhodes.
Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund have been dating since March 2019. And in June, the news came in that the actress was pregnant with her first child with boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund. “Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual and just a couple of weeks old. They are having fun and enjoying each other,” a source had told US Magazine.
The actress officially announced her pregnancy in August, with an Instagram post showing off her baby bump. She also took the opportunity to reveal the baby’s gender by captioning the picture, “ Me…and my two favorite guys.“
According to reports, Emma Roberts and her new born son, who weighs nine pounds, are healthy and ‘doing great after the delivery.’
Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund were reported to be ‘getting more and more excited’, weeks before the birth of their first baby.
Emma Roberts had earlier revealed that she had always ‘wanted a baby’ and had her eggs frozen in her twenties, after she was diagnosed with endometriosis. “Ever since I was little, I wanted to have a baby, in theory. When I was a kid, I begged my mom to have another baby. The day she brought my sister home from the hospital, I remember holding her, wanting to dress and play with her.”
She added, “It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant. But even then, I didn’t want to get my hopes up. Things can go wrong when you’re pregnant. That’s something you don’t see on Instagram. ‘So I kept it to myself, my family, and my partner, not wanting to make grand plans if it wasn’t going to work out. This pregnancy made me realize that the only plan you can have is that there is no plan.”
Roberts also recently became the first pregnant Cosmopolitan cover star, posing in a stylish maternity shoot for the magazine’s December /January issue.
