It looks like former The O.C. actress Rachel Bilson has finally got her wish, as it has been announced that she and her long-term partner Hayden Christensen are expecting their first baby together. Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have been together for seven years now and the actress has mentioned on a number of occasions that starting a family is the next step for their relationship.
It is not yet known when the baby is due but it is said that Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson are extremely excited about the news, with friends and family equally as overjoyed for them both. One insider told Us Weekly, "They've both talked about this for a while and are so excited. Everyone is beyond thrilled for them."
That is certainly true and Rachel Bilson has spoken of wanting to start a family with Hayden Christensen in a number of interviews over the past year or so. Just earlier this month, Rachel was speaking to the June issue of Health magazine, when she explained, "To start a family would be good, any year in the next few years. I've always wanted to be a mom. I have always wanted kids. I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house."
Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen met on the set of the 2007 movie Jumper and hit things off right away. It was not long before the couple confirmed they were dating and they announced their engagement in 2008. Unfortunately though, Hayden and Rachel went through a rough patch and called their engagement off in 2010 but they have worked through their issues and have come out stronger for it.
Congratulations Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen, we cannot wait to meet the little bundle of joy.
