Are Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson Expecting a Girl?

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’ve seen her in real life and with her skin there is no mistaking her for a teenager.

Congratulations! Should be a beautiful baby girl.

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?! ;)

Paula on

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.

Can’t believe she is 32!! She is soo pretty, he isn’t overly attractive but he’s a cutie though, that baby will be beautiful.. can’t wait to see what they have and what the name is!!!!

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
