Rachel Bilson is following in a true Hollywood tradition – baby before bride!
The former OC star, 32, star is pregnant with her first child and while she and her long-time boyfriend Hayden Christensen, 33, are excited to become parents this fall, they aren’t planning on tie the knot anytime soon.
“They’ve both talked about this for a while and are so excited,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.
“Everyone is beyond thrilled for them.”
Luckily for Bilson, her grueling filming schedule on Hart of Dixie is going to be changed to accommodate her pregnancy, with the show quickly moving up production and cutting some episodes from the season.
And even though Bilson and Christensen, who have had an on-again-off-again relationship for seven years, have no plans to marry before the baby is born, a friend says they’re ready for parenthood.
“They will make wonderful, hands-on parents.”
Congratulations Rachel and Hayden!
