She also revealed the gender in the post, captioning their first family photos: ‘Me…and my two favorite guys.’

‘Emma and Garrett are getting more and more excited, which is so nice for them,’ a  source told Us Weekly of the first-time parents’ eagerness to meet their little one. 

‘Garrett is really looking forward to becoming a dad and feels as though this is something he needed. He is ready to take on all the daddy duties, and Emma getting pregnant has forced him to become more responsible. He thinks that’s a blessing.’

The actress has since made history, becoming the first pregnant Cosmopolitan cover star, posing in a stylish maternity shoot for the December/January issue.

She admitted in the interview that she always wanted to be a mother: ‘Ever since I was little, I wanted to have a baby, in theory.

‘When I was a kid, I begged my mom to have another baby. The day she brought my sister home from the hospital, I remember holding her, wanting to dress and play with her.’

Roberts also revealed that she had her eggs frozen, when she was diagnosed with endometriosis, after switching to a female doctor.

She added: ‘It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant. 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.’

She and Hedlund, best known for playing Patroclus in Troy, began dating after the end of her engagement with Evan Peters in March 2019.

Hedlund had previously been in a relationship with Kirsten Dunst from 2012 to 2016. 

Speaking about her pregnancy, she said seeing her ‘body change inside and out so drastically has been a wild experience.’

‘Surprising and beautiful. Then again, some days I feel like I’m being hijacked by something,’ she joked.  

In October, the star had a socially-distanced, outdoor baby shower with around 15 people in attendance, according to E! News.
