Rachel Bilson may have only recently announced her pregnancy, but the Hart of Dixie star’s friends say she’s had babies on the mind for a long time.

Rachel’s Hart of Dixie co-star (and new mom), Jaime King, says that she knows motherhood is going to come naturally to the former O.C. star.

I knew she wanted a baby, she wanted it so badly,"  Jaime revealed to Us Weekly. "She's going to be in such good hands -- she's in a really good space. I'm really thrilled for her."

While this will be the first child for Rachel and boyfriend Hayden Christensen, Jaime says that the actress has been gearing up for motherhood by lavishing affection on the children of friends.

“Her best friend has a kid and she has a lot of friends with children, so I'm just there to support her however I can and honor and respect her processes,” says Jaime.

Of course, Bilson’s baby fever has had its benefits for Jaime and her little one, as well.

"She loves James, she's always bringing him toys," says the former model "Just seeing her with my son, I know she's going to be the best mother."
