Looks like congratulations are in order, as Emma Roberts has given birth to her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund!
The American Horror Story and Wild Child actress gave birth to her son on Sunday, which the couple named Rhodes. Thankfully, both Emma and the baby are doing well.
Her pregnancy was announced last August when Emma took to Instagram to show off her growing bump in a stylish white dress. There were also a few cute snaps of Emma with Garrett, she wrote, ‘Me…and my two favorite guys’.
Emma also opened up about her pregnancy and was told to freeze her eggs, after doctors discovered undiagnosed endometriosis (when tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places like the ovaries).
Emma had also shared, ‘I always had debilitating cramps and periods, so bad that I would miss school and, later, have to cancel meetings. I mentioned this to my doctor, who didn’t look into it and sent me on my way because maybe I was being dramatic?’.
She continued, ‘In my late 20s, I just had a feeling I needed to switch to a female doctor. It was the best decision. She ran tests, sent me to a specialist. Finally, there was validation that I wasn’t being dramatic. But by then, it had affected my fertility.’
‘I was told, ‘You should probably freeze your eggs or look into other options’. […] Just the thought of going through that and finding out, perhaps, that I wouldn’t be able to have kids… I did freeze my eggs eventually, which was a difficult process.’
But despite all odds, Emma and Garrett were able to welcome their first child with open arms…Congratulations!
