Actress Rachel Bilson is expecting her first child with long-time boyfriend Hayden Christensen.
Usmagazine first reported the news, revealing that the former ‘The O.C.’ star and ‘Star Wars’ star are going to welcome their first child later this year. A source told the publication: “They’ve both talked about this for a while and are so excited. Everyone is beyond thrilled for them.”
Bilson admitted in 2011 that she was broody, but said she prefer not to work while raising a family. She explained: “I’ve always wanted kids – it’s sort of like an obsession, but I want to do it right, where I don’t have to work. I’ve heard the stories, and I know it’s possible. I don’t know if I want that, though. I’m not sure if I want to continue to work when I have kids.”
Rachel Bilson and Hayden met on the set of their film “Jumper” in 2007 and began dating shortly after. The two got engaged on December 2008, only to call it off in August 2010. The couple reconciled three months later and had been together since.
This will be the first child for both.
