The Scream Queens star, 29, confirmed reports she had welcomed a child late last year with partner Garrett Hedlund by sharing a picture to Instagram.

She captioned the post: “Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right. Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund.”

Roberts’ celebrity friends sent their best wishes in the comments.

Actress Ashley Benson said: “I love you em. Sooo happy for you.”
