It's baby prep time! Rachel Bilson, currently pregnant with her first child, took a break from the Barbadian sun and surf on Monday, June 16, to go shopping at local baby boutiques.
For the excursion, Bilson, 32, opted for her trademark L.A.-casual attire. The O.C. alum wore a sleeveless printed top, loosely tied at her tummy, with a pair of torn faded denim shorts and flip flops.
The Hart of Dixie star has been relaxing in Barbados with boyfriend Hayden Christensen since May 22—one day after Us Weekly exclusively revealed the news of her pregnancy. On multiple occasions, the first-time mom-to-be has been snapped proudly baring her growing bump in skimpy bikinis, while joining her beau in the water for swimming, snorkeling, and sailing trips.
"They've both talked about this for a while and are so excited," a source told Us of the couple.
Lucky for Bilson, she has good friends to help her through the process of her first-time pregnancy. The actress' costar and close pal Jaime King said that she's been exchanging texts with the star regarding motherhood prep. "Of course I give her advice," King shared, "that's what friends do."
Their last texts, in fact, were related to Bilson's vacation. "[I told her] that she should drink a lot of water and stay out of the heat," King told Us. "Something that you do for people you love."
Model-turned-actress King, 35, who's a mom herself to 8-month-old son James Knight, said she foresees Bilson being a wonderful parent. "She has so many mom friends," King explained, "and is such a natural mother."
