Congratulations to the ever gorgeous Rachel Bilson on the arrival of her baby girl!
A representative has confirmed the news that the Heart of Dixie star and her fiancee Hayden Christensen welcomed their first baby, Briar Rose Christensen, into the world on the 29th October. Both Mum and bub are said to be doing well.
Briar Rose is a name you might recognise… it’s the original title of Sleeping Beauty written by the Grimm Brothers back in the 17th century.
It’s also a name that pops up in the Disney’s version from 1959 of Sleeping Beauty when princess Aurora is given the pseudonym of Briar Rose to protect her from harm.
Star wars actor Hayden Christensen and Rachel met on the set of a movie back in 2007 and became engaged in December 2008. Their relationship then took a turn for the worse and the engagement was called off in 2010, luckily they made amends and have been strong ever since.
The couple were over the moon when they learned that they were going to become parents:
“They’ve both talked about this for a while and are so excited,” a source told Us Weekly. “Everyone is beyond thrilled for them.”
Congratulations to the happy couple, we wish them all the best!
