Emma Roberts confirms her pregnancy with Garrett Hedlund, they’re expecting a boy

Me…and my two favorite guys 💙💙

A post shared by Emma Roberts (@emmaroberts) on

In June, Us Weekly reported that Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund were expecting their first child. At the time, I was like “wait, they *just* started dating and they were only hooking up, right?” Wrong. They’ve actually been happening for more than a year. They were first seen together in March/April 2019, and while the rumor at the time was that it was just a noncommittal hookup situation, they seemed to be seriously dating and maybe even exclusive for a year before she got knocked up. That being said, sources still claimed that it was a “surprise” pregnancy.

I wondered if Emma would even bother confirming the news on her social media, or with a statement to People Magazine or something like that. Turns out, she did. She posted the Instagram above last night with the message “Me…and my two favorite guys.” So she’s expecting a boy. Meanwhile, Kirsten Dunst seethes! (No, she’s fine. But damn, this is exactly what Kiki wanted from Garrett.)

Not that every expecting couple has to get married, but… am I the only one surprised that they’re not announcing this with an engagement? They both seem like the type to get married because they’re having a baby. I don’t spy a ring anywhere. And sheesh, these photos are super-awkward! Congrats to them though, Garrett is a hot piece and the baby will be gorgeous.

    Are you sure that one photo is right? Looks like that SNL Dave McCary who is with Emma Stone. 🤷‍♀️

    Congrat to the coupple
    Goodluck to the baby

    I’m still amazed how her domestic violence incident hasn’t followed her or kneecapped her career like it has for some male entertainers.

    • Millenial says:

      I was just reading about this in light of this news and apparently they were both hitting each other? But he had marks and she didn’t, so she was arrested. Maybe she really is crazy, but I’m going to withhold judgement if he was also hitting her.

      • Baela says:

        I wonder what the reaction would be if SHE was the one with marks and he said they both hit each other…

    • Lex says:

      Idk those stories were sketchy… i don’t fully recall but wasn’t it said they were both being violent but only he had marks? Something about her biting him? He declined to press any charges and they got back together for ages afterwards.

      Domestic violence is tricky for the victim so maybe Peters was abused and stayed with her. Maybe they were both violent. Maybe neither were. Who knows?

    • Lemons says:

      They were toxic for each other.

      I also don’t think she has an A list career either, so she may not be a joy to work with and the reputation of her family carries her.

      I do like her in Ryan Murphy’s shows though, but he seems willing to put up with antics.

      • Sof says:

        After watching Lucy Boynton in the Politician I’m not sure wether Emma will still get cast to play mean girl in Ryan Murphy’s shows.

    Kirsten is happy with Jesse Plemons. I doubt she GAF.

    • Levans says:

      I immediately thought of Kiki and I hope she is happy! She seemed to want to be a mom so bad

    • Lucy2 says:

      Jesse seems like a really great guy. I’m happy for her, and then as a couple.

      I do not have a good opinion of Emma, but hopefully they have a healthy, happy baby.

  5. Nancy says:

    She is, from many, many friends’ stories, a nightmare.

    • detritus says:

      I’ve never heard a positive rumour about her.

    • Anonymous says:

      She learned from the master of entitlement, her aunt Julia. There are so many rumours out there about how nasty/dismissive Julia Roberts is to anyone on set who doesn’t have the ability to influence her career trajectory (i.e., anyone who isn’t an actor, director, or producer).

    • hmpy says:

      Agreed. I met her and it was highly unpleasant. My bf used to hang out with her a lot and can confirm – highly unpleasant.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Those pictures are…well, they’re a choice! 🤨

    Could very well be a surprise. Perhaps he changed his mind. Perhaps they are head over heels for each other and overjoyed….or perhaps his people reminded him that, financial support or not, it would not be good for his career to bolt now. That’s showbiz. I guess we will see!

  7. Case says:

    I hope she has worked on her issues from when she was younger and able to be a stable, loving mother. Best of luck to these two.

    • Ariel says:

      @Case, A+ on hoping for the best.
      When we are young, we do a variety of stupid and/or dramatic and/or toxic crap, and some of us grow out of it and some don’t.
      Hoping for the best for their futures.
      Thank you.

  8. AndaPanda says:

    In this picture her profile looks very much like her famous aunt. Otherwise I don’t cAre much about her or know who her boyfriend is but hoping for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.

  9. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Garrett Hedlund is hot and has a great singing voice. That’s all I’ve got.

  10. Sunny says:

    I want that dress!

  11. Lisa says:

    Wishing her a healthy pregnancy.

  12. Daphne says:

    I think Garrett thought Kiki would wait til he was ready in the wings. But she moved on and found hers. I do not know much about Emma but she’s no Kiki in terms of career, fashion, intellect.

  13. Kebbie says:

    What are they looking at in these photos? Odd choice.

  14. ce says:

    Here we go again with a pregnancy magically white-washing a problematic entertainer. Note the literal white dress as all her past sins get washed away… so gross

  15. Emily says:

    It’s weird but Garret is a pretty prolific actor and I have yet to see any of his work! He also has an interesting face. He is definitely good looking but he is such a chameleon depending on the hair length/facial hair. He doesn’t look the same in any of his Google pictures, I have a hard time pinning down what he “really” looks like. I’m sorry he is now forever attached to Emma Roberts whether they break up or not, from what I know she’s a piece of work.

    • tealily says:

      I actually just Googled him to make sure he was the guy I was thinking of because that’s a weird photo. I’m sure I must have seen him in something, but couldn’t tell you what!

    • H says:

      The only thing I’ve seen him in was Four Brothers. He was good in that.

  16. Mariane says:

    I first saw him in Tron legacy. I honestly thought they broke up long time ago! Good luck to them. I hope it works out for the sake of the baby

  17. Bobbie says:

    He is one fine man.

  18. jess says:

    his hair is so pretentious…that’s all ive got
