Emma Roberts Having Baby with Minnesota Native
Alright, I've been a fan of actress Emma Roberts ever since she was Addie Singer on Nickelodeon's 'Unfabulous'. So, for me to read that not only is she pregnant, but she's also having a baby with a Minnesota native, was pretty cool.
She's dating a guy named Garrett Hedlund--he's an actor that has roots in Roseau, Minnesota. According to Wikipedia (my high school English teacher would be cringing right now if she knew I was sourcing Wikipedia), Hedlund was raised on a beef cattle farm outside of Wannaska, Minnesota.
NO WAY! I actually know where that is! Kind of cool, huh? Wikipedia goes on to say that he moved to Arizona when he was in 10th grade and saved up money as a server to take acting classes.
That's pretty awesome. If you don't recognize the name, you might recognize the face. According to E-Online, Garrett Hedlund was briefly engaged to Kristen Dunst. They dated for four years and then split up in 2016.
Notable Film projects Garrett Hedlund has been part of include; Friday Night Lights, Country Strong, Unbroken, Pan and several others.
Pretty neat, huh? Or, maybe I'm just a proud Minnesotan. I love when we have local ties to big news stories. Congratulations to the happy couple!
