Emma Roberts is loving life with her baby boy.

On Sunday, the actress, 30, gave fans a rare glimpse at her 4-month-old son, Rhodes Robert, as she celebrated her first Mother's Day as a new mom.

The Scream Queens star, who welcomed her first baby with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund in December, posted an affectionate shot of her cuddling with Rhodes while standing on a back patio.

In the adorable picture, Roberts holds Rhodes close to her face as the pair sweetly touch noses. The baby boy is wrapped in a cream blanket and wearing a tan beanie while Roberts wears a pair of red sunglasses and a white off-the-shoulder dress.

"Happy Mother's Day 🌼," she captioned the photo.

Back in March, Roberts revealed what she wished she knew before giving birth and why it's important to take motherhood one day at a time.

"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," Roberts said during a conversation with Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis also asked who Roberts most admires, to which the new mom replied, "My mom, especially after having a baby. I kiss the ground she walks on!"

Roberts told Cosmopolitan for the magazine's December issue that she originally wanted to be married and have children by age 24.

"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."
