Rachel Bilson has given birth to her first child!The O.C. alum and longtime boyfriend Hayden Christensen welcomed daughter Briar Rose on Oct. 29.
A rep for the couple confirmed the happy news on Thursday. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing well. They are asking for privacy and subscribe to the No Kids Policy."
The No Kids Policy refers to the Hollywood-wide policy picked up by news organizations like E! News and Us Magazine, which refuse to purchase unsolicited pictures of children obtained by intrusive paparazzi.
If the name Briar Rose sounds familiar, it’s because their baby girl has a Disney princess name. In the classic fairy-tale Sleeping Beauty, the three fairies sheltering the princess from Maleficent’s curse call the girl Briar Rose.
Bilson and Christensen, both 33, have been on and off dating since 2008 when they met on the set of Jumper. They were engaged in December 2008 but called it off after two years.
After their reconciliation, Bilson spoke about one day having a family. She revealed to Cosmopolitan magazine, :I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future—I hope."
The news of Bilson’s pregnancy broke in May when Bilson displayed a prominent baby bump prior to her Barbados babymoon with Christensen.
Hart of Dixie costar Jaime King was looking forward to her friend’s baby-to-be.
"It’s a really celebratory time. I’m really thrilled and happy that she’s going to be on this next journey of her life." King, who is mom to one-year-old James Knight,continued, "I know she’s going to be the best mother."
Congratulations to the happy couple and their new baby girl!
