American actress Emma Roberts has finally confirmed that she is pregnant.

Roberts, who is currently dating actor Garrett Hedlund, posted three photos on Instagram on Monday (Aug 31).

The 29-year-old hinted that she is expecting a boy with the caption: "Me... and my two favourite guys."

In the first photo, she is seen sitting and cradling her baby bump, while Hedlund, 35, is seen with her in the second and third photos.

Roberts was congratulated by several celebrities, including her famous aunt, Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts, who wrote "Love you" with a kiss emoji.

Glee (2009 to 2015) star Lea Michele, who just gave birth to a baby boy in August and was Emma Roberts' co-star in television series Scream Queens (2015 to 2016), wrote: "You will be the greatest mama. I love you Em. Boy moms together."

Entertainment magazine Us Weekly first reported that Emma Roberts was pregnant with her first child back in June.

Her mother Kelly Cunningham seemed to have confirmed the news in June when she was asked by a netizen on Instagram, but her account was later deactivated.

Roberts, who was in the TV series American Horror Story (2011 to present) and the movie Scream 4 (2011), was first linked to Garrett in March 2019 after a seven-year on-off relationship with her American Horror Story co-star Evan Peters.

Hedlund previously dated actress Kirsten Dunst for four years before they broke up in 2016.
