Emma Roberts is officially a mom! The actress has given birth to her first child with her boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund.

Roberts gave birth on Sunday, Dec. 27 in Los Angeles, according to multiplereports. The Holidate actress and Hedlund reportedly named their new bundle of joy Rhodes. ET has reached out for confirmation.

News broke that 29-year-old Roberts was pregnant in June.

The Scream Queens star and 36-year-old Hedlund have been linked together since March 2019, when they were spotted together shortly after she ended her engagement to Evan Peters.

In August, she confirmed her pregnancy on Instagram with a picture of her cradling her baby bump, also revealing that she and Hedlund were expecting a baby boy.

A month later, she shared another picture of her growing stomach. "Baby doll dress has a whole new meaning 🎀," she joked.

In November, Roberts became the first pregnant cover star of Cosmopolitan, posing for the women's magazine where she opened up about impending motherhood and her pregnancy journey for the December/January issue.

"At 16, I thought, 'By the time I'm 24, I’ll be married with kids,'" she told the mag. "And then I was 24 and I was like, 'Remember when I said I would be married with kids by now?' With work, especially with acting -- the travel, the hours -- it's not always conducive to settling down in a traditional way."

"It really started to come to the forefront of my mind when, a few years ago, I learned that I’ve had undiagnosed endometriosis since I was a teenager," she continued. "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? 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.'"

Even though Roberts' road had its ups and downs, the minute she let go of her worries, she and Hedlund were celebrating with good news.

"It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant," Roberts revealed. "But even then, I didn’t want to get my hopes up. Things can go wrong when you’re pregnant. That's something you don't see on Instagram. So I kept it to myself, my family, and my partner, not wanting to make grand plans if it wasn't going to work out. This pregnancy made me realize that the only plan you can have is that there is no plan."

ET spoke with Roberts in October, where she talked about her mom, Kelly Cunningham, accidentally spilling the beans on her pregnancy news on Instagram.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
