She’s bumpin’ in a bikini! As Us Weekly exclusively reports in its latest issue, Rachel Bilson is expecting her first child with boyfriend Hayden Christensen. The pregnant actress showed off her tiny baby bump on Thursday, May 22, wearing a black bikini while enjoying a getaway in Barbados.
The Hart of Dixie star, 32, wore a scalloped bandeau top and bottom for her seaside excursion with the 33-year-old Star Wars actor. Click here to see more Rachel Bilson bikini pics.
Bilson, looking lean and fit, laughed as she splashed around with her man in the ocean. The longtime couple—who’ve dated off-and-on again for seven years—looked closer than ever during their trip. Bilson wrapped her arms around Christensen’s neck in the tropical waters, as he boosted her up from below.
“They’ve both talked about this for a while and are so excited,” a source close to Bilson told Us of her pregnancy. “Everyone is beyond thrilled for them.”
The O.C. alum has previously expressed her desire to start a family. “I definitely have family on the brain,” she told Cosmopolitan last May. “Having kids is something I want to see in my future—I hope.”
One year later, that wish has been granted. “They will make wonderful, hands-on parents!” the insider told Us.
Reaffirming this to Us was Bilson’s Hart of Dixie costar Jaime King on Thursday night at an exhibit opening at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City, Calif. “I knew she wanted a baby,” said King, who welcomed her first child James last fall. “She wanted it so badly.”
