Rachel Bilson’s Disney inspiration

Rachel BilsonRachel Bilson named her child after a Disney character.

The Hart of Dixie star—who welcomed daughter Briar Rose with partner Hayden Christensen in October 2014—is such a fan of the company’s films that she couldn’t resist but to name her little girl after one of her favorite characters.

Hayden explained: ”There’s a Disney reference there I suppose. The original Sleeping Beauty is called Briar Rose. Rachel—we both love Disney—but Rachel especially was very keen on the name.”

Between parental duties and promoting his latest film 90 Minutes In Heaven, the 34-year-old actor is also working on renovating a farm, but hasn’t let his daughter meet the animals just yet.

He told Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family: ”My daughter has seen them from afar. We don’t let her get too close, but she’s seen the sheep and seen the chickens run by. She’s not of age yet.”

Meanwhile, a source previously claimed the couple were ”so excited” about having a little girl.

They said at the time: ”She’s so excited to be having a baby girl. She’s wanted it for a long time and is going to be an amazing mom. Everyone is ecstatic for her.”
