Emma Roberts‘ mom Kelly Cunningham is the person who confirmed her pregnancy news, without her consent, and she blocked her on Instagram because of it!
It all started when the 29-year-old actress bought her mom her very first iPhone.
“I was, like, ‘Now we can FaceTime and iMessage. And like, how sweet.’ And it was just such a love fest,” Emma said during her virtual appearance on The Tonight Show. “And it was the worst thing I ever did.”
Emma said eventually her fans went to her mom’s Instagram and flooded the comments with questions about if Emma is pregnant. Kelly responded to Emma’s fans, confirming the news.
“It was a disaster,” Emma said. “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, ‘Mom, you revealed my pregnancy,’ she goes, ‘Emma, you announced it,’” Emma said. “I said, ‘No, I didn’t. That was a tabloid.’ She’s like, ‘Oh, that wasn’t clear.’”
“I blocked her at one point. It was my only weapon. She texted me at 2:00 a.m., ‘Queen, did you block me? Sad face.’ I was like, ‘Yes, I did block you.’ Then I unblocked her. It’s been an Instagram war with my mother that I never saw coming. A good story to tell the baby,” Emma said.
Emma and her boyfriend Garrett Hedlund officially confirmed their pregnancy in late August.
