After almost 10 years together, one of Hollywood's most beloved couples have decided to call it quits.

According to US Weekly, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have called time on their decade-long relationship and are now living in separate cities.

The pair, both 36, welcomed their daughter Briar Rose in October 2014.

A source told the magazine: “They’ve been on the outs for a couple of months. They are completely, officially done.”


Rachel and Hayden met back in 2009 on the set of Jumper, and were engaged shortly after, though a brief blip in the relationship saw the couple call of their engagement in 2010.

However, the separation didn't last long and the pair reconciled three months later.

In a 2013 in interview with Cosmopolitan, the O.C actress opened up about their relationship.

“I'm a really good girlfriend — I always put all that first in my life. I'm definitely the person who would make him his favourite dinner to come home to.”

“I love to cook, so we make dinner at home a lot and watch movies.”

In a follow up interview with Cosmopolitan UK opened up about her love of romance:

“To have a partner is one of the greatest things. I've always been a fan of love! I love any movie or book or anything to do with love because I'm a romantic.”

First Chris and Anna, now Rachel and Hayden?

Sorry guys, love is officially dead.


Rachel Bilson is "open" to a revival of The OC and we're hoping and praying the others are on board.

The teen drama was one of our all-time favourite shows to watch on TV, so that's why we're pretty excited about Rachel saying she's open to taking on her role as Summer again.

Speaking to E! News, the actress said: "I'm always open to things. I don't know what it would look like with our characters being old now.

"We were riding skateboards on the pier; I don't know what they do now as 30-year-olds.

"But it would be nice to see everyone again," she finished.

We don't know about you, but we would love to see what Summer and Seth are doing ten years on.

When asked what she thinks the love birds are up to, Rachel said: "People always ask me that and I'm like, 'What was she doing when we ended?' I can't even remember; it was so long ago.

"I'm sure she has kids with Seth. I don't know! She's on the beach."

She added: "It's really nice that people loved the show so much and embraced it. I'm still so grateful to this day for the opportunity and to have been a part of something like that."



The ravages of time can be a cruel mistress for the Hollywood starlets desperately trying to preserve their youthful exuberance. 

Still, it seems that Rachel Bilson – FOREVER Summer Roberts to us – isn't a mere mortal.

That's because, and close-to a decade after the The OC wrapped up (we're still not over it) she looks the exact same.

Indeed, while hitting a chic Target fashion event in New York with BFF and wife of Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Rachel looked all sorts of totally gorge. 

Although the actress, now 34, maintains that she's decidedly low-key when it comes to a beauty routine since the birth of her daughter 18months ago.

Chatting to Allure magazine recently, she said: “In my own life, it’s a little bit of mascara, a little Chapstick, and I’m ready to go. 

“Maybe I’ll add a little eyeliner in there to spice things up. Maybe a little bronzer.”

She added that her daughter, whom she and her long-term actor partner Hayden Christensen, 35, named Briar Rose, doesn't even recognise her is she's sporting a lot of slap.

“If I ever have anything on – like if I have mascara on – my daughter just stares at me for, like, five minutes: ‘Who are you?’ Ms Bilson laughed.



We love a celebrity mini-me around these parts – it seems if you have good genes (as most famous folk do), they're readily passed down to the next generation (lucky next generation).

We're going to guess too that any offspring of the OC's Rachel Bilson and her long-term partner, Star Wars star Hayden Christensen, will be no different – though a recent Instagram post has only hinted at the cuteness of their baby daughter. 

Sharing the very first picture of ten-month old Briar Rose, only the little one's back and hat-clad head can be viewed.  

However, there is no denying that this is one seriously adorable snap-shot, not to mention that 34-year-old Hayden (to think that we'd almost – almost – forgotten about him) looks like a bit of a hottie himself.

Rachel, 33, is known for keeping her life incredibly private so we're not surprised she didn't show her daughter in full view – indeed, this is the very first glimpse of the child that we've been given.

Rachel must be in the mood for sharing too: she furthermore posted a snap of an adorable kiss with her beau – also something of a rare public occurrence. 

Baby Briar, who is named after Disney's Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, was born last October; her parents have been together for eight years after meeting on the set of Jumper

It seems that things are all very much back on track for this picture-perfect family. Ms Bilson and Mr Christensen actually got engaged back in 2010, but later that year split up.

Still, it wasn't long before they were back in each other's arms, although they've since put the wedding on hold indefinitely.

Rachel gushed about a boyfriend to a recent edition of Health magazine, saying: "This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa."


Everyone's favourite teenage television show turns 12 this week. Yep, it's been a full 12 years since Ryan got thrown into jail, Seth became a stoner, Summer became an environmentalist and Marissa gave us all wardrobe envy.

Ah, memories!

There was a lot of drama on the show (we won't even mention the final season) but it was always there to entertain us. And yes, maybe we felt like we were kinda part of their squad too.

To mark the occasion, we look at the main characters and what they're up to now.

Mischa Barton played Marissa Cooper on the teen drama, and she definitely had her fair share of ups and (many) downs but we couldn't help but love her on-off romance with Ryan.

Ultimately, however, her (#spoileralert) untimely death shocked audiences. And let's face it, the show was NEVER the same after Mischa's departure.

Ms Barton has also been apart of almost as much drama in real life: in 2007 she was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and then just last year she got entangled in a major legal battle with her own mother. Barton decided to sue her mum for allegedly taking her money and kicking her out of her own home. 

Talk about drama!


Ben McKenzie played hunk Ryan Atwood (swoon) on the show, and he stole the hearts of many females around the world. Although, and while he was also often the OC hero, he still had his fair share of troubles (thanks, Marissa).

Nowadays, we're happy to report that Mr McKenzie has returned to our TV screens: he has adopted the role of James Gordon on the show Gotham.

Still, Ben is a Hollywood actor who likes to keep his life private away from the cameras. In saying that, we can confirm that he is currently single (so yes, we're all still in with a chance!).


Adam Brody played Seth Cohan on the show and made us adore him with his quirky attitude and cute moments with Summer. Since the show ended, Mr Brody has kept himself busy with a film career in lieu of small-screen success.

And although he's yet to star in a major role, the world went crazy when it emerged that he and Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester were dating. Now they're married – tying the knot in a cosy private ceremony in February of last year.


Rachel Bilson played pint-sized stunner Summer Roberts on the teen drama and turned from superficial princess to crazy environmentalist in just one season.

In 2011, Ms Bilson was cast as the main character in TV show Hart Of Dixie but it was then cancelled in May of this year.

She started dating Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen in 2007 and after a very much on-off relationship the couple ended up having a baby girl, Briar Rose late last year.


What's going on in the States lately?

You can't even blink and yet another show is being cancelled!

While Kelly Brook's latest venture may not have grabbed the attention of the public like TV execs might have hoped, there's no doubt that Hart of Dixie had a special place in the hearts (ahem) of many TV viewers, but it looks like we'll have to make do without it now.

It has emerged that the comedy-drama starring former OC star, Rachel Bilson and BFF to Taylor Swift, Jaime King, has been axed after just four seasons.

While new mum, Rachel, and mum-to-be, Jaime, have yet to comment on the news, the series creator, Leila Gerstein, has confirmed the sad news, tweeting: "It’s official. But I have to add a thank you to all our amazing, inspiring fans. You are the real BlueBell. xox"

What are we going to do now that we can't follow the ups and downs of Zoe Hart?!

We're suffering withdrawals already.



It sounds like it is all over for Entourage actress Autumn Reeser and her husband, as TMZ report she has filed for divorce.

Autumn, who also starred in The OC, married Jesse Warren Strutzel five years ago and the couple have two sons together, Finneus (3) and Dashiell, who will be one-year-old tomorrow.

According to TMZ, Autumn wishes to share custody of their two sons, but does not want to pay her future ex-husband any spousal support.

Autumn recently had a mini-OC reunion with her co-star Rachel Bilson on the final episode of Hart of Dixie, which we were super excited about! 

Rachel has since given birth to a baby daughter, Briar Rose, with her partner Hayden Christensen. 




Didn’t that pregnancy seem to go on forever?

The Heart of Dixie star and her Star Wars’ hubby Hayden Christensen welcomed a baby girl into the world on October 29th and have reached into the Disney classics for name inspiration.

In a statement, the couple confirmed: "Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson welcome their daughter Briar Rose Christensen born on October 29, 2014.”

Sleeping Beauty was definitely one of our favourite movies growing up, so we approve of this slightly unusual choice.

The two actors seem very happy together and we're sure they're going to make great parents. Speaking about her relationship with Hayden earlier this year, Rachel said: Christensen, "He's so incredibly supportive and considerate. It's so basic—that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you're older. I've been in my relationship for seven years, so we've grown up together in a way. This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa."

With all of Rachel’s celebrity pals, Briar Rose will no doubt have several fairy godmothers fighting for her attention and showering her with love and gorgeous gifts.

Congrats to the lucky couple and welcome to the world, Briar Rose.



Whether it’s scarlet, ruby or cherry, red has always been known as a powerful colour – and now psychologists have found that wearing it actually enhances a woman’s sex appeal and makes her seem warmer and more approachable.

The researchers, from Wuhan University in China, also found that red adds to a woman’s overall impression of competence. The colour’s effect was measured by asking participants to rate how attractive they found photos of men and women wearing blue, white or red.

The study discovered that the colour also makes men seem more attractive, but the effect isn’t quite so potent.

So ladies, it seems red is the perfect choice next time you’re looking for an outfit to make you stand out from the crowd! Here’s a few tips for how to work red into your outfit without going too full-on:

1. Print perfect
Mix a red-based print into your outfit for a touch of sexy style. Tartan is a great casual way to work red into your look, or go for a demure floral white and red print like Kelly Brook:

2. Get accessorised
Statement bags, shoes, belts or jewellery are a great way to work a pop of red into your look without going too Jessica Rabbit. Miranda Kerr’s red bag really livens up an otherwise simple outfit:

3. Pick one
Try livening up more muted tones with a touch of colour for just one part of your outfit, like Leighton Meesters’s stunning black, cream and red ensemble:




Aww, it has been confirmed that Rachel Bilson is expecting a baby girl with her partner, Hayden Christensen.

Sourced confirmed the happy news to People magazine, who also broke the news of Rachel’s pregnancy back in May.

Congratulations to the happy couple on this lovely news!



It has been reported that Rachel Bilson is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Hayden Christensen.

The O.C. star is said to be delighted, with a source saying: “They’ve both talked about this for a while and are so excited. Everyone is beyond thrilled for them.”

Rachel has been dating the Star Wars veteran since 2007 and got engaged in 2008. They went through a bad patch in 2010 but got back together briefly afterwards.

Rachel has always been open about wanting a big family and has said in the past: “I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future – I hope.”

Congratulations to Rachel and Hayden on their happy news!




Rachel captivated us all while playing Summer Roberts in The O.C and currently stars as Dr Zoe Hart in Hart of Dixie.

The actress’ style mirrors her bright and bubbly personality, as she loves wearing bright colours and always looks so cute.

This relaxed maxi skirt paired with a plain black t-shirt is so simple but stylish and we love the red dress – so slinky and sexy.

We really want to get our hands on a tuxedo jumpsuit and we also love how feminine that final dress is, especially with the gorgeous shoulder detail.

Keep up the good work, Rachel!
