Emma’s pregnancy was confirmed in January when a source told E! News: ‘Emma is pregnant and loves married life!’
The movie star was photographed cradling her large bulge during an outing with a friend on December 30, although she did not comment on the news at the time.
The sighting came after it was revealed in December that Emma had pulled out of an upcoming movie with Brad Pitt.

Emma was slated to play the title role in La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s old Hollywood epic Babylon.
He left the cast after an apparent scheduling conflict. But perhaps the ‘conflict’ was taking time to raise her first child.
According to Deadline, the producers are lining up 30-year-old Australian actress Margot Robbie to quickly replace Stone.
The film was supposed to begin filming in Los Angeles before the coronavirus pandemic halted plans, so the change in filming dates likely created a conflict.
Emma and her husband, comedian, writer, and director Dave, 35, began dating in 2017 after meeting on the set of Saturday Night Live, where he works as a segment director.
Hooked: Emma and Dave’s marriage was confirmed by PEOPLE in September 2020, two weeks after they were spotted wearing matching wedding bands on an outing in Los Angeles.
The couple confirmed their engagement in December 2019 when Dave shared a photo of the couple on Instagram with Emma showing off her ring.
Rumors first flew last May that Emma had secretly married McCary when she was sporting a wedding ring during a YouTube appearance with Reese Witherspoon.
She dropped one more hint that she was now a married woman when Dr. Harold Koplewicz, who was also on the chat, asked her about marrying an “anxious man.”
He said, ‘If you marry an anxious man, you will have to know me for the rest of my life.
While Emma reassured him and said, ‘Fortunately I didn’t do that.’
Their marriage was later confirmed by People in September, two weeks after they were spotted wearing matching wedding bands on an outing in Los Angeles.
They were reportedly supposed to have their wedding in mid-March, but had to cancel it due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ultra-private Emma, who has no social network, previously shared how her perspective on marriage and children has changed over the years.

She never saw herself as the type of person to settle down in the past, she told Elle magazine that she changed her mind as she grew older.
She said: ‘My perspective on children has changed as I get older. I never babysat or anything. When I was a teenager, I thought, “I’m never going to get married, I’m never going to have children.”
‘And then I got older and I thought, I really want to get married, I really want to have children.

The former couple began dating in 2010 after meeting on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man, though they never spoke publicly about their relationship.
The A-list actors were reportedly disbanded in 2015.
