The source also told Radar that it was bittersweet that her younger brother was having a baby before she did. "There's always a sense that the oldest child should be the first to have a baby of course, but there's still time for Rachel. She's at that stage in her life where friends, family and exes such as Ryan are all popping out babies." So her single childless status was duly noted. "It can't help but bring the families' focus on whether she will be a mother herself one day."
