Roberts has kept followers in the loop since welcoming her little one last December. The actress shared the first-ever photo of her newborn son in January, writing in an Instagram caption, "Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right ☀️," calling Rhodes her and Hedlund's "bright light."

Before giving birth, the Holidate star made history as the first pregnant woman to grace the cover of Cosmopolitan. Opening up about motherhood in an interview for the magazine's December 2020 issue, Roberts told the outlet she once imagined starting a family earlier in life.

"At 16, I thought, 'By the time I'm 24, I'll be married with kids,' " she said at the time. "And then I was 24 and I was like, 'Remember when I said I would be married with kids by now?' ... It sounds cheesy, but the moment that I stopped thinking about it, we got pregnant."

Just a few months after giving birth to Rhodes, Roberts told her former Scream Queens costar Jamie Lee Curtis what she wished she had known about motherhood before becoming a mom herself.

"It's not something you'll always feel like you're getting right, but you will get better every day. When in doubt, just love your child and yourself," she said in a chat for Violet Grey,

Since welcoming her baby boy, Roberts told PEOPLE that she's changed her lifestyle and her approach to sustainability, with the goal of creating a better world for her son to grow into.

"That was definitely the most eye-opening, having a child," she said in July. "Where before, I'm operating in the world on my own and I'm just kind of thinking about what's right for me. And when you have a kid, it's like, wait, how old is he going to be in the year 2050? What's the world going to look like?"
