Something tells us Rachel Bilson is a big fan of Disney movies.

The Hart of Dixie star and her boyfriend Hayden Christensen welcomed a baby girl Oct. 29th, according to Us Weekly, and they named their little one...

Briar Rose Christensen!

The mag reported that the baby's name is a nod to the 1959 Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. In the film, the three fairies try to protect Princess Aurora from Maleficent's curse by calling her Briar Rose. The moniker was also the name used in the original 1812 Grimm Brothers fairy tale.

Although the super private couple never officially confirmed their pregnancy news themselves, it was revealed back in May that they were expecting their first child together.

Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - October 06, 2014Before she was pregnant, Rachel did gush about the possibility of being a mom in the future, telling Cosmopolitan in May 2013, "I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future-I hope."

The couple met in 2007 on the set of Jumper, according to Us Weekly, got engaged in December 2008 and called it off in August 2010. Three months later they patched things up and have been going strong ever since.
