Emma Roberts and her boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund, are reportedly expecting their first child together, according to an exclusive from Us Weekly. The outlet broke the news via their podcast, Hot Hollywood. Neither actor has any previous children.
Despite the article from Us Weekly, Roberts has not yet publicly confirmed her pregnancy. The outlet did not say how far along she is in her pregnancy.
The two were first linked back in March of 2019. At the time, a source claimed they were just friends, despite the fact they were spotted holding hands while walking through a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California.
The American Horror Story alum and Hedlund reportedly got together not long after Roberts called it quits with her former fiancé, fellow American Horror Story actor Evan Peters.
Peters and the 29-year-old actress had a notoriously difficult relationship over the years, with various ups and downs, including a domestic dispute. They officially split up in early 2019.
Hollywood Life reported that she and Hedlund wanted to keep things quiet when they got together, seemingly in light of her previous highly publicized relationship troubles.
Before dating Roberts, the Tron: Legacy actor dated his On the Road co-star, Kirsten Dunst, from 2012 until 2016. Dunst has since had her first child with her fiancé, Fargo actor Jesse Plemons.
“Now, Garrett and Emma will gear up to welcomed [sic] their first child next!” wrote Hollywood Life.
Despite working to keep their relationship on the down low, Hollywood Life stated that the two had been photographed together a few times amid the coronavirus pandemic. They seemed to have been spending time together during the social distancing and quarantine restrictions.
The outlet also indicated that their sources would be reaching out to gather more details on the actress’s pregnancy.
On social media, fans of Roberts appeared to be extremely excited for her and ecstatic about the heartwarming news. Dozens of users expressed good wishes toward the star and hoped that she and Hedlund were doing well. Some people were just shocked that Roberts was dating Hedlund.
