The 29-year-old actress casually revealed the news over on her Instagram last night. In the post announcing the news, she wore an off the shoulder smock with puff sleeves and was seen sitting adorably with her boyfriend and the father of her incoming baby, Garret Hedlund.
And, to those wondering what gender Roberts’s first child will be, she captioned the post, “Me...and my two favorite guys 💙💙”
According to US Weekly, rumours of the pair’s first child first emerged in June, but photos of her baby bump began surfacing earlier this month. Before that, Roberts had been very private about her personal life and, thanks to self-isolation and cleverly angled photos, hidden her pregnancy from the world.
“I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended," she explained to Cosmopolitan back in May 2019. "It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience.”
“Growing up is hard. Sometimes it makes me sad that I can’t have a private moment. Because of Twitter and Instagram, there’s a whole other element where everybody can comment on what you’re doing and no one knows the real story. That’s hard.”
According to Yahoo! Life, Roberts and Hedlund were first romantically linked in March 2019, when they were photographed holding hands in Silver Lake. Almost a year after that in January 2020, a source allegedly told US Weekly that the pair weren’t taking their relationship quite seriously.
“They are not talking about an engagement or marriage at the moment,” the source told the outlet. “They like hanging out and going out together, and their relationship is more fun than serious.”
But, come late July 2020, said source disclosed that Roberts and Hedlund were looking at “the next step” in their relationship. Apparently, their pregnancy hadn’t been intended but was still happy news.
“They are surprised, shocked and happy at the same time, and so are their families,” the source told US Weekly.
