Rachel Bilson is expecting her first child, according to reports.

The Hart Of Dixie actress, 32, is starting a family with Star Wars actor and long-term boyfriend Hayden Christensen, 33, Us Weekly reported.

"They've both talked about this for a while and are so excited," an insider was quoted as saying.

"Everyone is beyond thrilled for them."

The couple, who met while filming Jumper together, have been dating since 2007.

They got engaged in 2008 but called it off in 2010, before reconciling three months later.

The former OC star has said: "I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future - I hope."

And she has said of Hayden: "He's so incredibly supportive and considerate... I've been in my relationship for seven years, so we've grown up together in a way."
