Emma Roberts is a mom!
The actor shared a photo with his newborn son, Rhodes Robert Hedlund, on Tuesday night.
“Thank you 2020 for doing one thing right,” she wrote with a sun emoji. “Our brilliant light Rhodes Robert Hedlund.”
The “Holidate” actor, 29, welcomed his bundle of joy to the world with his boyfriend, “Unbroken” star Garrett Hedlund, 36.
During her pregnancy, Roberts showed off her baby bump on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. In doing so, she became the first visibly pregnant woman to adorn the cover with glossy.
In Cosmo’s article, Roberts spoke about her journey through pregnancy and her struggle with endometriosis, which she was clinically diagnosed with in her late twenties after years of suffering.
“… by then it had affected my fertility.” I was told, “You should probably freeze your eggs or consider other options,” she explained.
Roberts ended up going through the egg freezing process and began to “open up to other women” about her experience.
“When I discovered my fertility, I was a little stunned. It felt so permanent to me, and oddly, I felt like I had done something wrong, ”she told the publication. “I was so grateful to find out that I was not alone in this situation. I hadn’t done anything “wrong” after all. “
She added that “as soon as I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant.”
Roberts told the magazine that she was hungry and tired during her pregnancy, but was in awe of what the human body can do.
“To see my body change inside and out so drastically has been a crazy experience. Surprising and beautiful,” said Roberts.
In Cosmo’s story, the former child actor also expressed concern about raising his son in Hollywood.
“I signed up, but he didn’t,” she said. “I remember when I was a kid hanging out with my aunt (Julia Roberts) and people following her like crazy. This is an abnormal thing. These days I’m like, “Look, I get it, take your picture,” but they won’t leave you alone. “
Indeed, as Roberts noted her son was born in 2020, she waited at least two weeks to announce his arrival to the masses.
