Rachel Bilson and her longtime boyfriend Hayden Christensen have welcomed their first child, a daughter named Briar Rose.

"Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson welcome their daughter Briar Rose Christensen born on October 29, 2014," the couple's reps said in a statement. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing well. They are asking for privacy and subscribe to the No Kids Policy."

The No Kids Policy refers to "a celebrity coalition to protect children of celebrities from being photographed without consent," according to CBS News.

The Hart of Dixie actress and the Star Wars actor gave their daughter a name fit for a princess. In fact, the name Briar Rose was the nickname that the fairies gave Princess Aurora in the Disney classic Sleeping Beauty.

The couple first met when they were co-starring in the film Jumper in 2008. They became engaged in December of that year, but briefly split in 2010. Luckily, they reconciled three months later.

Before finding out that she was pregnant, Bilson revealed to Health Magazine that she had always wanted to be a mom.

"To start a family would be good, any year in the next few years,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom. I have always wanted kids. I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
