Emma Roberts' son has a special bond with his grandmother.

The American Horror Story star, 33, appeared on the Wednesday, April 3 episode of Today with Hoda & Jenna where she shared that her son Rhodes, whom she shares with ex Garrett Hedlund, has a unique relationship with her mom Kelly Cunningham.

"We have to talk about your babe. He’s 3. How’s motherhood? First of all, this weird parallel with this show where you play this woman who is desperate to become a mom. Was that even more impactful now that you are one?" Bush Hager asked.

"It was crazy. Well, first of all, I should have three children now because I’ve had to wear a fake pregnancy belly for this show, for Madame Webb… so I feel like it’s been non-stop pregnancy, and I have one child," Roberts joked. "But no, he came to visit me on set — on the appropriate days — and it’s amazing being a mom. And he’s 3 now."

Later in the conversation, Hoda Kotb asked Roberts if becoming a mom has changed her relationship with her own mother.

"I mean, yes. I was like, ‘I’m sorry if I was difficult as a kid,' " the star laughed. "My mom is so helpful. To be on a show like this, American Horror Story, it’s very demanding."

"It’s like 12-hour days, five days a week, and my mom helps me with my son and they have the most beautiful relationship and I’m so grateful," the proud mom continued. "She’s probably watching. Hi Mommy!"

In December, the actress celebrated her son's third birthday, posting a black and white photo on Instagram that showed her smiling at Rhodes while he smiled at the camera.

“Happy Birthday to the sweetest soul. I love you Rhodes! Here’s to 3! ❤️,” Roberts captioned the post.

Roberts also shared snapshots of her son on her Instagram Stories, including one picture of herself cuddling Rhodes as she smiled back to the camera and her son stared off into the distance.

She captioned the first celebratory Instagram Stories, “happy birthday Roadie!”
