All is well in Hart of Dixie land and its lead star, Rachel Bilson. Not only has her show been renewed for a fourth season (our hearts runneth over) on the CW, but the 32-year-old is reportedly expecting her first child with her longtime boyfriend, Hayden Christensen. Squeal!
Although the couple hasn’t officially confirmed the happy news themselves, it seems as if Summer Roberts Rachel hinted at a possible pregnancy in Health magazine — which she also stars as the cover girl — when she discussed the items on her bucket list.
“...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.” Looks like Rachel and Hayden are making that little dream come true just a tad bit sooner than anticipated!
As for what Hayden will be like as a father, we’re assuming he’ll be just as amazing as he is with Rachel. “He's so incredibly supportive and considerate,” shel gushes. “It's so basic—that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you're older. 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.” Aww!
We’ve been fans of Rachel since her O.C. days, and we can’t help but envy her stylish wardrobe. Even on Hart of Dixie, Rachel is always decked out in fashion-forward ensembles, and has a stellar collection of short shorts and bauble-licious earrings. So what will Rachel’s maternity wear be like? Amazingly chic, that’s what! But the only catch? Since Rachel is just a tad short, people might start mistaking her for a teen mom...
“I've always looked young because I'm so short, and especially if I'm dressed down. When I have a baby, everybody's going to be like, "Awww, poor teen mom. Poor girl." And Teen Mom is my favorite show,” Rachel reveals. “That's what I download and watch on the plane. Like, don't talk to me, I'm watching Teen Mom. I know, pathetic. But it's true.”
We here at Wetpaint Entertainment don’t think Rachel is pathetic at all for watching MTV’s Teen Mom. In fact, we love her even more for it.
How excited are you for Rachel to be a mom! Share you congratulatory thoughts in the comments below!
