Rumors about Emma Roberts’ pregnancy started circulating in June. But the actress first publicly revealed that she and Hedlund were expecting a baby boy in August by posting three photos of herself with Hedlund in which she can be seen cradling her baby bump.
“Me…and my two favorite guys,” she captioned the post.
Roberts became the first pregnant woman to appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan when she posed for the magazine’s December issue.
“At 16, I thought, ‘By the time I’m 24, I’ll be married with kids,’ ” she said in her cover story. “And then I was 24 and I was like, ‘Remember when I said I would be married with kids by now?’ … It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant.”
Roberts faced issues surrounding her ability to get pregnant after learning she had undiagnosed endometriosis a few years back.
“I was told, ‘You should probably freeze your eggs or look into other options,’ ” she recalled a doctor telling her.
Roberts eventually did go through the egg freezing process and started “opening up to other women” about her experience.
“When I found out about my fertility, I was kind of stunned. It felt so permanent, and oddly, I felt like I had done something wrong,” she told the publication. “I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything ‘wrong’ after all.”
She further added that the “moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant.”
Talking about her pregnancy, Emma Roberts also told the magazine about how she felt hungry and tired during her pregnancy, but she was impressed by what the human body can do.
“To see my body change inside and out so drastically has been a wild experience. Surprising and beautiful,” Roberts’ said.
Emma Roberts’s pregnancy also included an out-of-the-box socially-distanced outdoor baby shower that happened in October. The decor included mushroom-shaped cookies and a vagina-shaped floral arrangement.
“So grateful to my family and pod for making my pregnancy feel so celebrated during such wild times,” she wrote on Instagram alongside photos of herself in a floral dress and matching face mask.
Roberts and Hedlund were first spotted together in public early in 2019.
