'Our Bright Light': Emma Roberts Shares First Picture Of Newborn Son Rhodes Robert Hedlund — See The Precious Snap
Actress Emma Roberts shared the first look of her son, Rhodes Robert Hedlund, just over two weeks after she gave birth.
Roberts welcomed her son with Garrett Hedlund on Sunday, December 27, and took to Instagram to show off her little one.
"Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right," Roberts wrote. "Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund."
In the snap, a barefaced Roberts donned an orange dress with orange sandals while she cradled her son in a matching swaddle. The new mom looked tired but happy, as she looked at her son while they sat outside.
Famous pals and fans took to the comments section to gush over the tot. "Oh baby!! Congrats!!" Reese Witherspoon commented. "I just liked it twice!!!" Ashley Tisdale said. "Congrats beautiful."
"I love you em. Sooo happy for you," Ashley Benson wrote, while Taylor Lautner left three heart emojis.
Roberts had fertility issues before she got pregnant and had been living with undiagnosed endometriosis since she was a teenager. Roberts froze some of her eggs, "but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant."
However, her fertility struggle "felt so permanent, and oddly, I felt like I had done something wrong," she told Cosmopolitan when she graced the cover with her baby bump. "I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything 'wrong' after all. It sounds cheesy."
Roberts regularly showed off her baby bump during the pregnancy but kept the sex of her baby to herself before his arrival. A source told Us Weekly in July that both Roberts and Hedlund’s families were "surprised, shocked and happy at the same time" about their bun in the oven.
In fact, Roberts’ mom, Kelly Cunningham, was so excited that she accidentally leaked the news, which resulted in Roberts' blocking her on Instagram.
Roberts and Hedlund — who got together in March 2019 — kept their relationship under wraps for a while.
The American Horror Story star was previously engaged to Evan Peters.
Congrats to the happy couple!
