Emma would not say how far along: ‘I’m not as pregnant as people think but very pregnant.’

And she looks forward to becoming a mom: ‘I am just so excited to meet him, it’s like edge of my seat anticipation,’ added the red carpet favorite.

The star added she feels lucky because ‘literally four of my close girlfriends were pregnant this year or have had a baby this year.’

And Emma added, ‘So I have had such a nice support group of other women that either were ahead of me in their pregnancy or on their second baby so I felt so lucky that I had people to text at all hours of the day and night.’

One of her ‘best girlfriends’ was every two hours breastfeeding so when Emma could not sleep, they texted.

‘She’s like, “I’m feeding the baby,” and I’m like, “Help me with this. What about this? Oh my God I forgot to buy bottles, burp cloths, where do I even get that?”‘ said Roberts.

‘It’s been so nice to have other women to talk to that are going through that. I think if I was the only person pregnant during this pandemic and isolation I would feel even more isolated. 

Happy now: And she looks forward to becoming a mom: 'I am just so excited to meet him, it’s like edge of my seat anticipation,' added the red carpet favorite

‘So I’m just so grateful that I haven’t ever felt that way for a second during this whole process.’

Drew also said: ‘I have had the fortunate pleasure to be pregnant twice. I don’t even know how I got pregnant twice, I mean I do know how I got pregnant twice, it’s a miracle, it’s a miracle to be able to do it. 

‘Look I know a lot of people do it but still I couldn’t believe I got to be pregnant but towards the end you’re just like ready.’

The friends also talked Emma’s new movie Holidate.

Drew said: ‘I think people on New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s and birthdays they feel alone and they don’t want to be alone so how amazing would society be if everyone was like, “I’m totally independent and cool, I need nothing but I have a built-in buddy for holidays.” I was like that is the best concept like not just for a movie but in life.’

Emma added, ‘Yeah I agree. For me I’m like I feel like I’ve been doing this concept on Valentine’s Day with my girlfriends where at this point even my friends that have husbands are like, “We want to hang out and get sushi and watch a movie on Valentine’s Day,” and so that has always been the best celebration to me of Valentine’s day.’

She has a new project: Her film is Holidate. Drew said: 'I think people on New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s and birthdays they feel alone and they don’t want to be alone so how amazing would society be if everyone was like, "I’m totally independent and cool, I need nothing but I have a built-in buddy for holidays"'

Drew said, ‘I believe they call it Galentine’s’ and Emma responded, ‘I’ve never heard that. Galentine’s? Okay I love that.’

This comes after Emma said she wanted to become a mother at the young age of 24.

But traveling for work kept her from establishing stable relationships. In the past she has dated Alex Pettyfer, Chord Overstreet and Evan Peters, and now is having her first child, a son, with Garrett Hedlund.

‘At 16, I thought, “By the time I’m 24, I’ll be married with kids.” And then I was 24 and I was like, “Remember when I said I would be married with kids by now?”‘ the movie star told Cosmopolitan.

The cover girl said that constant travel for her career kept her from her dreams of pursuing a family. 

The film: Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) hate the holidays. They constantly find themselves single, sitting at the kids table, or stuck with awkward dates. But when these two strangers meet during one particularly bad Christmas, they make a pact to be each other’s holidate for every festive occasion throughout the next year

The niece of Julia Roberts started working at age six. She had the memorable role as Johnny Depp’s young daughter Kristina Jung in the 2001 cocaine movie Blow.  She also popped up in aunt Julia’s comedy America’s Sweethearts with Catherine Zeta-Jones that same year.

In 2004 she landed her TV show Unfabulous where she played Addie Singer, and films like Aquamarine and Nancy Drew followed.

As an adult she worked on the films Palo Alto, Adult World and Billionaire Boys Club. 

In 2013 Roberts went back to TV as she starred as Brooke Thompson on American Horror Story then can the series Scream Queens on which she played Chanel Oberlin.

Emma’s next movie is Holidate: ‘The script came along and I remember thinking, This is what I want to do. I want to make a movie like this. It’s nostalgic; it’s romantic; it’s fun.’

The brunette beauty added: ‘I love serious work, but sometimes, you just want to laugh and watch a movie 10 times in a row, and that’s okay.’ 

Her journey to pregnancy was not easy, the actress told Cosmopolitan.

She had a fertility struggle and was told to freeze her eggs after a doctor informed her she had undiagnosed endometriosis: ‘I felt like I had done something wrong,’ said Roberts who has been acting since age six.  

Roberts stated she thinks she had endometriosis when she was a teen and it was never dealt with. 

When she was diagnosed, her doctor added that endometriosis causes problems with fertility. She was then told she probably needed to freeze her eggs and she did so. 

‘When I found out about my fertility, I was kind of stunned,’ she said. ‘It felt so permanent, and oddly, I felt like I had done something wrong.’

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?

Endometriosis is a disease in which the endometrium (the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus or womb) is present outside of the uterus.

 Endometriosis most commonly occurs in the lower abdomen or pelvis, but it can appear anywhere in the body. 

Symptoms of endometriosis include lower abdominal pain, pain with menstrual periods, pain with sexual intercourse, and difficulty getting pregnant.

On the other hand, some women with endometriosis may not have any symptoms at all. 

Approximately 10% of reproductive-aged women have endometriosis. However, the true prevalence is unknown since the diagnosis requires laparoscopy to visualize and biopsy endometriosis lesions. 

Endometriosis is seen in 12-32% of women having surgery for pelvic pain, and in up to 50% of women having surgery for infertility.

Then she was brought into ‘a new world of conversation about endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, fear of having kids.’

The Nancy Drew actress said: ‘I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything “wrong” after all.’

According to UCLA Health, endometriosis is a disease in which the endometrium (the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus or womb) is present outside of the uterus. 

‘Endometriosis most commonly occurs in the lower abdomen or pelvis, but it can appear anywhere in the body. 

‘Symptoms of endometriosis include lower abdominal pain, pain with menstrual periods, pain with sexual intercourse, and difficulty getting pregnant. 

‘On the other hand, some women with endometriosis may not have any symptoms at all,’ it was explained. 

She said she got pregnant when she stopped thinking about her fertility issues.

‘It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant,’ she revealed.

But Roberts was not comfortable sharing the news with her fans right away because she worried something could go wrong.

‘So I kept it to myself, my family, and my partner, not wanting to make grand plans if it wasn’t going to work out,’ she said.

‘This pregnancy made me realize that the only plan you can have is that there is no plan.’

Now she feels ‘hungry and tired’: ‘Food and sleep do not abide by the normal laws when you’re pregnant,’ she continued.

‘But I’m healthy, which is the thing I’m most grateful for.

‘To see my body change inside and out so drastically has been a wild experience. Surprising and beautiful,’ Roberts added. ‘Then again, some days I feel like I’m being hijacked by something.’ 

In the photo shoot, which was done by Kylie Jenner’s friend Sasha Samsonova, Roberts shows off her bare belly at a hilltop mansion in LA.

And the interview was conducted by her friend, novelist Stephanie Danler.
