Rachel Bilson is a first-time mommy after giving birth to a baby girl.
The “Hart of Dixie” actress and “Star Wars” actor Hayden Christensen, both 33, welcomed daughter, Briar Rose Christensen, on October 29.
Her spokesperson confirmed the baby news, stating that “Baby and mother are healthy and doing well”.
The name Briar Rose was inspired by the 1959 movie “Sleeping Beauty”. The name Briar Rose was the alter ego given to Princess Aurora by her three fairy guardians in the beloved animated Disney film.
Rachel was recently given a baby shower by her friends “Black Swan” actress Natalie Portman and her “Hart of Dixie” co-star Jaime King.
Guests at the shower also included her high school friends.
A source said, “Instead of gifts, everyone brought a birth bead. Each person gave her a piece of advice and a blessing along with the bead. She will use the beads for strength during labor”.
It was announced in May 2014 that the former “O.C.” actress was expecting her first baby with boyfriend Hayden Christensen.
The couple never officially confirmed the news, but a close friend of Bilson’s revealed she was thrilled to be having a daughter.
The insider said, “She’s so excited to be having a baby girl. She’s wanted it for a long time and is going to be an amazing mom. Everyone is ecstatic for her.”
Bilson and Christensen first met on set of the 2008 film “Jumper” and got engaged in December 2008. They quietly called off their engagement in August 2010, reconciling three months later.
