Happy birthday, Rachel Bilson! One of our favorite CW stars is turning 34 today, August 25! The new mom, former Summer Roberts and Zoe Hart had a life-changing year; we bet she’s celebrating hard!
Rachel Bilson is turning 34 years-old today, August 25! We’re so happy that Rachel has had a year full of love and excitement with longtime partner Hayden Christensen, 33, and their new little bundle of joy, Briar Rose! We know that the coming year is just going to bring more happiness watching her grow!
Raise your hand if you were obsessed with The O.C. like we were! Rachel portrayed the quintessential HBIC as Summer Roberts, breaker of Seth Cohen’s heart and our personal role model. Sure, we loved Seth, but we wanted to be Summer! The O.C. was gone from our lives far too soon, but we never forgot Rachel and her talent. That’s why we were so excited for Hart of Dixie to premiere! A dose of Rachel every week as a smart, sexy doctor? Yes, please.
Unfortunately, in this past year, Hart of Dixie was cancelled. The cancellation of the CW staple came due to low ratings, but fans wondered aloud if it had anything to do with Rachel wanting to bail. She vehemently denied such rumors, and stated that she absolutely loved playing Zoe Hart! All in all, Rachel didn’t have too much time to focus on the end of the show — she had a baby on the way!
Briar Rose was born in November 2014, the first child for both Rachel and Hayden. What a lovely name, and a wonderful time for the couple to experience together! Little Briar is such an adorable baby; she definitely inherited her mom and dad’s good genes! We bet that Rachel is enjoying new motherhood so much, and that the next year is going to treat her little family so well! What we’re dying to know, though — what’s she got planned now that Hart of Dixie has wrapped?
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Rachel a happy birthday in the comments!
