Julia Roberts Sends Love to Niece Emma Roberts on 29th Birthday


Julia Roberts is sending her niece all the birthday love!

The actress was one of the first people to send well wishes to Emma Roberts on her 29th birthday.

“Happy Birthday to a Gal I love and adore with my whole heart! #yessheismyniece,” Roberts wrote alongside a photo of the two of them in celebratory hats that the "Pretty Woman" star shared on Instagram on Monday.

Emma responded to her aunt with a simple: “I love you so much.”

The “American Horror Story” actress and her famous aunt have always been close and share a special bond. Emma’s father is Julia’s actor brother Eric Roberts.

Emma opened up about their friendship and uncanny resemblance on “Busy Tonight” in May 2019.

“We have too many teeth when we smile,” she said. “When I’m talking to someone it’s like whatever, and then I smile and it’s like, ‘Oh my god, you look just like your aunt,'” she quipped.

While Julia is Emma’s biggest supporter, don’t expect her to watch or appear alongside her niece on Ryan Murphy’s hit anthology series “AHS.”

"I'll tell you why—because I can't even get though the commercials," Roberts explained. "I am the most fitful scaredy cat. When the first 'American Horror Story' came out, remember the first poster? I said to Murphy, 'OK, I curse you. I stop at a traffic light and I have to look at that thing on billboards. It gives me the willies. What is that? What is going on? What have you done?” she told E! back in 2015.

Emma wasn’t hurt or surprised by her aunt’s stance admitting that she too turns off the series when she’s staying alone in a hotel.

“I literally turned it off so fast and turned all the lights on and went to sleep with all the lights on. I was like, 'I don't even care that I know these people—I'm terrified,” she told the publication.
