Following the steps of Kylie Jenner and Sophie Turner, Emma Roberts’ was very private about her pregnancy—well at least at the beginning of it. And just like those two, before she officially announced her pregnancy, the speculation has already got fans chattering around.
But speaking of ‘’speculation’’ and ‘’rumours’’, it was actually Emma’s own mother, Kelly Cunningham that put the rumours to bed once and for all by confirming via social media that her daughter was indeed expecting her first child with partner Garrett Hedlund. When fans flocked to Kelly’s Instagram to ask about the rumours, she responded by confirming that they were true.
But it looks like this confirmation was not given the green-light by Emma, who has now revealed that she was not happy with her mother for beating the couple to the punch. During an appearance on The Tonight Show, the 29-year-old revealed that it all began when she bought her mum her very first Apple iPhone.
“I was like, ‘Now we can FaceTime and iMessage.’ And it was just such a love fest,” she explained. However, she came to regret the decision, “It was the worst thing I ever did [..] It was a disaster,” she said about the news reveal.
“And I found it all out on a plane. So, I couldn’t get to her. Like, I couldn’t call her or attack her. I could just iMessage with her and DM her and ask her to please stop!”
“When I said to her, ‘Mum, you revealed my pregnancy,’ she goes, ‘Emma, you announced it,'” she said. “I said, ‘No, I didn’t. That was a tabloid.’ And she’s just like ‘Oh, that wasn’t clear’.”
“An Instagram war with my mother that I never saw coming.”
That’s when the Scream Queen star took to extreme measures and blocked her own damn mum on Instagram. “I blocked her at one point. It was my only weapon,” she explained. Funnily enough her mom then reached out to her, “She texted me at 2am, ‘Queen, did you block me? :(‘ And I was like, ‘Yes, I did block you’. Then I unblocked her.”
Laughing about it now, she describes it as “an Instagram war with my mother that I never saw coming.” And the pair are all good now, even seeing it as “a good story to tell the baby,” she said. Oh moms, they’re always the one to tell our business..
