Hedlund, for his part, shared a slew of adorable pictures with his little man as he expressed his love by saying, “Happy 2nd Birthday to My Beautiful Lil Boy Rhodes!!! You are truly, ‘Where The Roses Grow!’ I Love You More than Anything else my eyes will ever see!!!” One of the pictures shared by Hedlund showed him holding Rhodes above his head in the middle of a two-way rural street. Other photos showed the father-son duo walking hand-in-hand on a dock and Rhodes touching the strings on the neck of a guitar, observing a cow and playing in an outdoor playset.
Since Rhodes’ birth, Roberts has been protective of her son and has not shown his face or him on social media. She showed his face for the first time in an Instagram post on Mother’s Day in 2021. She posted a lovely snap of herself holding Rhodes in her arm while cutely playing with his nose. The picture captured her in a white off-shoulder dress, while Rhodes was swaddled in a white blanket.
Roberts and the ‘Troy’ actor started in 2019. After being together for three years, the couple broke-up at the beginning of 2022, just a few days after they celebrated the first birthday of their son. In February, a source revealed that the former couple was co-parenting amicably. “Garrett and Emma have a great co-parenting relationship. When he’s sober, he’s a great guy, and they’ve been handling co-parenting very well,” they told Us Weekly.
Roberts previously opened up to PEOPLE about how her mindset changed while raising Rhodes as a single mother. "That was definitely the most eye-opening, having a child," she said in July. "Where before, I'm operating in the world on my own and I'm just kind of thinking about what was right for me. And when you have a kid, it's like, wait, how old is he going to be in the year 2050? What's the world going to look like?" she reportedly said.
