Actors Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund are expecting their first child together. Roberts took to social media to announce her pregnancy, posting photos to Instagram of her with a baby bump and her and Hedlund together. The couple was first spotted together back in March 2019.
“Me… and my two favorite guys,” she wrote next to two blue heart emojis, indicating the baby is a boy. She also linked to the post on Twitter. There, it racked up more than 600 retweets and more than 2,000 likes, to add to the almost 2.5 million likes on Instagram.

Congratulations poured in from celebrities, friends and family. And fans, too, of course.
“Love you,” wrote her famous aunt, Julia Roberts.
“Stunning!” commented celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. “Enjoy every moment.”
“Gorgeous mommy,” wrote socialite Nicky Hilton.
Before being linked with Hedlund, Roberts was previously engaged to her “American Horror Story” co-star, Evan Peters.
When asked about the breakup by Cosmopolitan in May 2019, the 29-year-old Roberts explained that she prefers to keep her private life private.
“I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended,” she told the magazine. “It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience. Growing up is hard. Sometimes it makes me sad that I can’t have a private moment.”
She also spoke out about the effect of social media on her personal relationships.
“Because of Twitter and Instagram, there’s a whole other element where everybody can comment on what you’re doing and no one knows the real story,” she added. “That’s hard.”
In March 2019, a source spoke to Us Weekly about Roberts’ and Hedlund’s budding romance.
“Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual and just a couple of weeks old,” the source told the magazine.
It looks like a lot has changed for these two over the course of 2020! Congratulations on their forthcoming bundle of joy!
