Emma Roberts welcomes first child with Garrett Hedlund

Congratulations to them.

Emma Roberts has welcomed her first child with partner Garrett Hedlund.

The American Horror Story star gave birth to a baby boy named Rhodes this week, according to TMZ. The publication reports that the child weighed nine pounds, and that both baby and mother are "doing great."

Roberts announced the news that she was expecting her first child in August, sharing a photo of herself cradling her bump. She wrote: "Me... and my two favourite guys."

29-year-old Roberts and fellow actor Hedlund are believed to have started dating at the beginning of last year.

The couple were spotted together on a date in LA in early 2019 and later again holding hands in New York a few months later.

Roberts, who is best known for her work on the aforementioned American Horror Story, was previously engaged to her co-star Evan Peters.

The pair dated on and off for seven years before eventually splitting for good last year. They met on the set of film Adult World in 2012 and later went on to star together in the Ryan Murphy series.

35-year-old Hedlund began his career in 2004 when he starred alongside Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom in Troy. He later went on to appear alongside Billy Bob Thornton in Friday Night Lights and TRON: Legacy.

Hedlund and Roberts have kept their relationship mostly private since they started dating. They have yet to comment publicly on the birth of their son.
