The baby has made his debut on Emma Roberts‘ Instagram page. The 29-year-old Scream Queens actress shared her first ever photo of her newborn baby boy on Jan. 12, along with other exciting information: his full name. “Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right [sun emoji] Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund,” Emma revealed underneath the mother-son photo.

Emma, who looked like the embodiment of sunshine herself in a bright orange dress and matching heels, sweetly cradled little Rhodes in the photo. He was wearing a baby beanie with teeny-tiny animal ears, making the snapshot even more adorable. The printed orange blanket that swaddled Rhodes even coordinated with his mom’s cheerful dress.

They were enjoying a sunny day in a backyard, and Emma looked like she was in absolute bliss. Both fans and Emma’s famous friends were overjoyed to see Emma loving her new role as a mom. Her Scream Queens and American Horror Story co-star, Billie Lourd, left a string of sparkly heart emojis, and stars like Lily Aldridge, Helena Christensen, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Tisdale also left similar heart emojis.
