Turning to friends for some help and inspiration in the kitchen, Roberts was every bit the hostess with the mostess as she teased some of her dishes which included an expertly crafted cheese board made by her and a pal and an ornate cake from a local LA baker.
Recently Roberts posed for the cover of Cosmopolitan for her first pregnancy shoot as she spoke about expecting motherhood as well as forming an image past how Hollywood perceives her.
‘There’s always been a disconnect between the private me and the public me. In Hollywood, the public decides who you are and then they’ll decide if you get to change or not,’ she said while calling it ‘disheartening.’
Getting candid about her current pregnant state Roberts said, ‘I am hungry and tired. Food and sleep do not abide by the normal laws when you’re pregnant,’ echoing the sentiments of Thanksgiving as she said, ‘But I’m healthy, which is the thing I’m most grateful for.’

She continued, ‘To see my 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 added, ‘Ever since I was little, I wanted to have a baby.’
Not oblivious to her privilege as a successful working actress who has been afforded some time off due to both her pregnancy and the pandemic she said:
‘Some days are a struggle. This year has been a struggle, for everybody, in different ways and at different levels, but I’ve gotten to really reassess what self-care means to me,’ while sharing that she has been working since she was 12.

Also getting candid about her battle with undiagnosed endometriosis – a disorder where uterine tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus – she was told that she should freeze her eggs which she did.
‘It felt so permanent, and oddly, I felt like I had done something wrong,’ she said while sharing that she and Hedlund ended up being successful naturally.
‘The moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant.’
Roberts and Hedlund has been quietly dating her Tron: Legacy beau since March of 2019, only confirming her pregnancy rumors on her own terms in August.
