Rachel Bilson Is Pregnant!

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Rachel BilsonHart of Dixie actress Rachel Bilson and her boyfriend, Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen, are expecting a baby! According to Us Weekly, which quotes a “Bilson insider,” the cute couple have “talked about this for awhile and are so excited.”

Well, we’re excited for them! From crazy pregnancy cravings to surprising benefits of being pregnant to watching your bump grow to wondering what color eyes and hair your baby will have, pregnancy brings with it so many fun new experiences. (Of course, there are the not-so-fun experiences, too, like morning sickness and embarrassing pregnancy problems.)

No word on a due date—or how her pregnancy is going so far. But it sounds like Bilson, 32, is ready for motherhood: She appeared on the May 2013 cover of Cosmopolitan and told the magazine: “I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future—I hope.”

It looks like her wish is going to come true! Congrats to the parents-to-be!

Star Wars Baby Shower: May the Force Be With Jaime King!

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Baby Shower CakeMay the force be with Hart of Dixie star Jaime King when she goes into labor this fall! The pregnant actress and George Lucas fanatic, was feted by friends (including super-stylish celeb pals Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilson and Selma Blair) at her Star Wars-themed baby shower on Saturday at the Soho House in West Hollywood.

The centerpiece of the baby shower was an elaborate cake featuring Jaime as Princess Leah, and her husband Kyle in full Jedi gear, surrounded by Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, and their baby on a planet (most likely in a galaxy far, far away). Since the couple doesn’t know the sex of their baby—and plan to be surprised on his or her birthday—the cake read: “May the force be with baby Newman.”

Why the Sci-fi theme? The space adventure holds a special place in Jaime and her husband’s hearts. Aside from both of them being obsessed with all things Star Wars, Kyle directed Jaime in the 2009 movie Fanboys—about buddies who take a cross-country trip to Skywalker Ranch so their dying friend can see a screening of Star Wars: Episode I, The Phantom Menace before its released—and Jaime voiced several characters on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated TV series from 2009 to 2012.

While I’m not as R2D2- and C3P0-obsessed as Jaime and Kyle, I love that they (and her friends throwing the shower) went outside the box with the baby shower theme. It’s a tip for everyone to learn from. Your (or your friend’s shower) should focus on the mom-to-be’s likes and interests and really be personal to her. Love books? A nursery rhyme, Alice in Wonderland, or Dr. Seuss-themed party is perfect. Can’t get enough of animals? A circus, jungle or petting zoo-themed shower could be for you. Have a special interest, like football, music or even knitting? They can all be incorporated into a baby shower tailored just for you, making your day extra-special.

For your own Star Wars-themed baby bash, check out these awesome recipes and craft projects. You can even take your love of the movies one step further by naming your baby after the epic series with these cool baby name suggestions. Star Wars not your bag?
