One more couple torn apart … Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund had however received the favor of public opinion when their love story was unveiled in broad daylight, in 2019. Indeed, the two lovebirds displayed a great complicity at each of their public outings. A year later, still on their little cloud, Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund went up a gear by welcoming a son, Rhodes, born on December 27, 2020. Unfortunately, the happiness did not last. Rumors of separation had been swirling for several weeks, as the two actors hadn’t been seen together for quite some time. The dreaded news was finally confirmed this Friday, January 21: Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund are indeed separated, and have been for several weeks already. A break that comes as their son Rhodes celebrated his first birthday at the end of the year. “It’s sad but they’re doing their best to raise their son apart,” a source told People magazine. “Having a baby in the middle of a pandemic was way harder than they thought.”
According to the newspaper, the two young parents are doing their best to support each other, despite the complicated period. “They’re really, really trying their best to get by. Garrett really made an effort while Emma was recovering from childbirth. He made sure the house was never short of anything, bringing things loved to make her feel better. She’s just gotten back to a normal routine.”
