On Monday, November 24, Rachel Bilson was spotted for the first time since giving birth to her daughter with actor Hayden Christensen. Bilson was seen at a Tender Greens in Los Angeles buying takeout. The new mom dressed down for comfort, wearing a loose black t-shirt and trousers combo with a Zoe Karssen leopard print cardigan and Birkenstock sandals. The former OC star also sported a side-braid and wore dark sunglasses. Last week, it was Bilson’s beau who was spotted out and about. Christensen was photographed when he went to dinner with his friend at Beverly Glen Center in Bel Air.
Bilson and Christensen welcomed baby Briar Rose on October 29. According to Bilson’s rep, “Both mother and baby are healthy and doing well. They are asking for privacy and subscribe to the No Kids Policy.” Prior to the sighting on Monday, Bilson has been out of the spotlight. She also hasn’t spoken to the press about her new status as a mom. However, in an interview with Health magazine earlier this year, the Hart of Dixie star admitted that she was excited at the thought of being a mother.
“I've always wanted to be a mom,” Bilson told Health. “I have always wanted kids. I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house.”

Bilson and Christensen met while shooting the film Jumper. They got engaged in 2008, but called it off two years later and broke up. They got back together three months later and they have been inseparable ever since. “I've been in my relationship for seven years, so we've grown up together in a way," Bilson told Health. “This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa.”
Bilson currently stars in Hart of Dixie, which will be premiering its fourth season on January 2015.
