There seems to be another famous baby on the horizon: Actress Emma Roberts apparently is expecting her first child with a man named Garrett Hedlund, an actor best known for his role in Strong country, and with whom Roberts has been quietly dating for just over a year.
Yesterday, We weekly They reported that Roberts, 29, and Hedlund, 35, were expecting their first child, forcing delighted fans to flood the Instagram of Roberts’ mother, Kelly Cunningham, with comments about the baby. While the comments were largely congratulatory, a skeptical fanatic sought Cunningham’s confirmation. (Neither Roberts nor Hedlund have confirmed the pregnancy.) “Is Kelly pregnant with Emma?” asked the fanatic, to which Cunningham replied: “Yes! ❤️ “
While Roberts fans have responded to the reports quite enthusiastically, the baby news has also been met with some surprise, as many, including myself, were unaware that Roberts and Hedlund were serious. When the couple was first seen holding hands in public in March 2019, Roberts had just finished her engagement to her fiancé again, and a source told E! that Roberts and Hedlund were simply “exploring a relationship”. And since then Hedlund only appeared on Roberts’ Instagram once. (Hedlund refrains from all social networks).
Congratulations to the couple for coming out of the exploration phase of their relationship and entering one that is significantly more binding. Seeing that the couple is partly linked by their love of books, I imagine many baby reading lists.
