Garrett Hedlund has a ‘very “Simba-bolic” moment’ with baby son Rhodes as they act out iconic scene from Disney’s The Lion King

Garrett Hedlund treated fans to a rare glimpse at his and Emma Robert’s 19-month-old son Rhodes in photos shared to Instagram on Tuesday.

In the snaps, the 37-year-old actor hilariously recreated an iconic scene from Disney’s The Lion King as they visited a Bass Pro Shop store together.

Holding up Rhodes so he could get a closer look at a stuffed buffalo in the store, Hedlund couldn’t help compare it to when Rafiki held up Simba on Pride Rock.

Audrey McGraw, 20, responded with a delighted ‘Awwwwww.’ 

She is the daughter of country music superstars Faith Hill, 54, and Tim McGraw, 55, and the It’s Your Love artist just happens to be the boy’s godfather.

Hedlund has kept a low profile on and off social media over the past several months after he was arrested for public intoxication in February.

He was already on three years probation over a previous DUI case at the time of the arrest. 

The alleged public intoxication incident occurred just days after it was revealed that he split with girlfriend Emma.

A source told Us Weekly that Emma, who’s the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of Julia Roberts, gave Hedlund multiple ultimatums about his drinking before they went their separate ways.

‘Garrett and Emma have a great co-parenting relationship. When he’s sober, he’s a great guy and they’ve been handling co-parenting very well.’ the source shared.

The split has been amicable, as the former couple appear to be on the same page in their commitment to their son.

Hedlund made it a point to publicly express his gratitude and appreciation for Emma this past Mother’s Day.

He published a written letter to Emma on his Instagram, where he called her ‘the most beautiful mother’ in the lead in.

‘You gave us a gift who never ceases to melt our hearts, amaze our minds, and make all the anythings just fly away, from morning till night,’ he wrote out with pen and paper, before ending by sharing ‘all my love.’
