In fact, during an October 19, 2020 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress had her belly on full display while chatting about her pregnancy and how she got into a major “Instagram war” with her mom, Kelly Cunningham, after she confirmed the baby news on Instagram, hours after news first broke!
“It was a disaster,” Emma said after her mom revealed the big news with an Instagram comment, replying to a fan. “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.”
She added, “I blocked her at one point. It was my only weapon.”
Discussing the entire incident further, Emma told SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show on October 21, 2020 that at first her mom was “horrified” that she was making headlines but now she loves this newfound fame. Because of that, Emma had to “grovel” with her mother after blocking her on the social media site.
“I blocked her just to prove a point,” Emma shared. “And then I had to grovel to her because then I was like, ‘OK mom, like, I’ll unblock you.’ And she hadn’t even accepted my friend request. So, then I had to wait for that, which was her, like, glorious moment. She was like, ‘Oh, maybe I’ll accept you later.’ I was like, ‘This is not OK.'”
Since then, the actress, 29, has been showing off her stunning pregnancy style on Instagram. While posing at her baby shower on October 4, 2020, the actress cradled her stomach.
She first confirmed her pregnancy via Instagram on August 30.
“Me … and my two favorite guys,” she captioned her post.
Emma’s social media announcement came two months after Us Weekly first confirmed that the Unfabulous alum and her longtime boyfriend, 36, were gearing up to become parents. At the time, a source close to the pair told the publication that they were “surprised, shocked and happy at the same time” over the baby news.
Another insider revealed to the outlet in July that the couple knew the baby’s gender but that “they hadn’t picked out any names yet.”
