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.

He's also appeared in Tim McGraw's 'Truck Yeah' music video and Kings of Leon's  'Beautiful War' video.

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!
