Is Rachel Bilson thinking pink?

The Hart of Dixie actress and her longtime love, boyfriend Hayden Christensen, are expecting a daughter, a source tells PEOPLE.

A rep for Bilson denies the report and calls the source’s claim “speculation and gossip.”

Although the mom-to-be and the actor have stayed mum on pending parenthood — and have yet to officially announce they will welcome their first child together — sources confirmed to PEOPLE in May that Bilson was pregnant.

But when Bilson, 32, was spotted walking on a beach in Barbados, she let her belly do all the talking, showing off her bump in a patterned two-piece.

“I’ve always looked young because I’m so short, and especially if I’m dressed down. When I have a baby, everybody’s going to be like, ‘Awww, poor teen mom. Poor girl,’ ” she has joked in the past.

I am Rachel’s publicist.and more importantly I want you to know that NO ONE from People Magazine called or emailed me prior to running this fabricated story by an anonymous source(s) for a confirmation or a comment. Honestly, when did something like the sex of an unborn child become fodder for the masses — I simply don’t understand what has happened with manners, common decency, privacy, etiquette, and simply minding your own business.

The rep denied they’re having a girl….So does that mean s/he just CONFIRMED they’re having a boy?! 😉

The rep didn’t deny or confirm anything about the sex of the baby. He denied the story as fabricated by some anonymous source. So no confirmation of anything.

Why Rachel rep getting mad with people magazine? Rachel should have used her protection. And not go visit Hayden so much in Canada. She said that she wasn’t going to that anymore andv she did. She should have focused on her career more. Instead are hanging out with Hayden. And Hayden should have focus on his career too. At least he has two movies coming out and Rachel has nothing at all. So Rachel rep should have told her to other things with her life. Rachel knew better to get pregnant. Hayden is not about all this. He is about business and Rachel know this. Why Rachel couldn’t have a movie coming out? Hayden also should have dated other women. He need a scandal to save his career now. Rachel has used this pregnancy up.
