Hart of Dixie actress Rachel Bilson is pregnant with her first child. The former O.C. star is expecting a little bundle with her long-time boyfriend (and former fiance), Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen. The couple apparently has been talking about starting a family for some time now, so the news couldn't be more exciting to Rachel, Hayden, and their loved ones. "Everyone is beyond thrilled for them," a source told Us Weekly.
Last year, during an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, the 32-year-old actress admitted to having a tiny case of baby fever. "I definitely have family on the brain," she said. "Having kids is something I want to see in my future -- I hope." Friends of the normally private, low-key couple claim that the pair will make excellent, loving parents. "They will make wonderful, hands-on parents," an insider claimed. And Rachel has already been honing her skills as a dutiful homemaker for years, saying, "I'm a really good girlfriend -- I always put all that first in my life. I'm definitely the person who would make [Hayden] his favorite dinner to come home to."
