Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are new parents. The stars welcomed a baby girl named Briar Rose. The little lady was actually born on October 29, but it wasn’t until Thursday that the private couple released the news.

It is the first child for the longtime couple, who managed to stay mum throughout Bilson’s entire pregnancy, despite a very obvious baby bump. The “Hart of Dixie” actress was first reported to be expecting back in May. She later had a shower on August 31, attended by Natalie Portman and Jaime King.

A rep for Bilson says the new mom and daughter are healthy and doing well. Supporters of the No Kids Policy, Christensen and Bilson are asking that paparazzi not try to take photos of the child.

Bilson and Christensen may have been inspired by the film Sleeping Beauty when they chose their daughter’s name. In the 1959 Disney classic, Princess Aurora goes by the alias Briar Rose while hiding from the evil sorceress, Maleficent. 

Bilson and Christensen began dating in 2007, and became engaged the following year. They split in mid-2010, before reuniting a few months later. Congrats to the new parents!
