The Hart of Dixie actress and her longterm boyfriend Hayden Christensen are "so excited" to be expecting their first child together. "They've both talked about this for awhile and are so excited. Everyone is beyond thrilled for them," a source said.

Friends are delighted for the couple and think they will be "wonderful" parents. "They will make wonderful, hands-on parents," one pal said.

It is not yet known when the baby is due.

The 32-year-old actress admitted last year she was keen to start a family with the Star Wars actor: "I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future - I hope."

Rachel Bilson Understands Co-Star Romances

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Dating,

Rachel Bilson and Hayden ChristensenRachel Bilson believes it is "natural" for actors to date their co-stars.

The Waiting For Forever star met her boyfriend of five years Hayden Christensen on the set of 2007 movie Jumper, and she thinks it's a normal occurrence to embark on a relationship with someone who you meet through work.

"Dating co-stars is natural. When you're working with someone, it's habit. I met my man at work. I'm attracted to mysterious men. Every woman can relate to that, right?" she said.

But Rachel - who also dated her O.C. co-star Adam Brody for three years before they split in 2006 - admits she doesn't play by the rules when she is in a relationship because she prefers to rely on her instincts when judging whether a man is right for her or not: "I've been in relationships where we've said, 'I love you' after two weeks. I think it depends on the person and the relationship. If it feels right, go with it. Love shouldn't play by the rules. It's all about chemistry."

After spending some time apart, and Hayden Christensen have decided to call it quits. The former O.C. actress’ rep told People magazine: “Yes, the engagement is off.”

Rachel, 28, and Hayden, 29, first met on the set of the movie and started dating in 2007. They later became engaged in February 2009.

Friends claim distance was the main problem as Rachel lives in Los Angeles, while Hayden is based in his home country of Canada. “It just wasn’t working out, ” one pal said. “Rachel is now focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward.”

In June, the couple announced they were “taking a break” as they wanted to reassess their feelings for one another. “They are taking about a month off and will then revisit their relationship to decide if they should stay together,” a source said at the time.

Engaged Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson on One Month Break

Hayden Christensen and Rachel BilsonCelebrity couple and Hayden Christensen are rumored to be taking a one month-long break, despite having been engaged since February of last year.

A source close to the couple revealed that they are already two weeks into the brief separation, which they decided to take in order to see if they should stay together.

When asked about upcoming wedding plans last night at a Los Angeles event, Bilson flashed a ringless finger and said, “No, no plans,” pointed to her hand and added, “No nothing.” Judging by her reaction, I’m guessing that the reunion isn’t going to be a rush to the altar.

The pair first met on the set of the 2008 action thriller Jumper and later co-starred again in last year’s New York, I Love You. There has been no official word from Hayden’s camp.

Perhaps the split will give them more time to focus on their careers…

Unfortunately, most of the dresses I saw this year were either outright boring or simply ugly.  You can view more of the lowlights - and some of the highlights - after the jump.
