Roberts and Hedlund were first spotted together in March of 2019, not long after the Holidate star ended her engagement to Evan Peters. Reports that Emma was pregnant broke out in June 2020, and she confirmed the news through an adorable Instagram post in August.

In November, Roberts became the first pregnant cover star of Cosmopolitan and opened up to the magazine about her pregnancy fears. "Things can go wrong when you're pregnant," she said. "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."

The actress was scared that her diagnosis of endometriosis would affect the baby. Thankfully, those fears are likely all gone now that she's given birth to a boy. According to TMZ, Emma and Garrett have named their newborn Rhodes. The famous mom is doing well after delivery.

In an incredible coincidence, the baby boy is the third child born to a Scream Queens cast member this year. "It's pure witchcraft," Emma said. "I don't know how else to explain it. It was not planned." Witchcraft or not, we're just happy to see another celeb welcome their first child.
