Congratulations to Rachel Bilson — the “Hart of Dixie” star is pregnant.
On Wednesday (May 21), the 32-year-old Bilson and her longtime boyfriend Hayden Christensen announced that they are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly reports. The couple met on the set of their movie “Jumper” in 2007 and have been together since then, except for a brief three-month breakup back in 2010.
Bilson has been very open about wanting to have kids with 33-year-old Christensen. “I’ve been in my relationship for seven years, so we’ve grown up together in a way. This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what and vice versa,” Bilson said recently. “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.”
So how would Bilson’s “Hart of Dixie” onscreen alter ego, Zoe Hart, react to Bilson’s exciting news? She’s so glad you asked:
