Rachel Bilson shared a gushing post on social media on Wednesday (Apr. 19) in celebration of boyfriend Hayden Christensen's 36th birthday. The actress posted a candid picture of her partner on Instagram alongside a touching tribute to her long-time love: "Happy Birthday Handsome ❤ we love you so much #10yearsandcounting #superdaddy #birthdayboy."
The Hollywood couple, who have been dating since 2007, are proud parents to two-year-old daughter Briar Rose. The O.C actress has made no secret of her desire to start a family with her long-term boyfriend. She previously told Cosmopolitan: "(Turning) 30 is a whole different thing; you can slow down and focus on family. Starting a family one day is definitely something I look forward to." They met on the set of Jumper in 2007 with Hayden popping the question a year later. The engagement was called off in 2010, but the stars reconciled after just a few months.
Rachel has described Hayden as her "perfect man, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa". She revealed: "I'm happy… To have a partner is one of the greatest things. I've always been a fan of love! I love any movie or book or anything to do with love because I'm a romantic… I'm an emotional person; I go with my heart before my head every time!" Meanwhile, the American actress is currently starring on Nashville, while Hayden is set to appear in the upcoming action thriller First Kill alongside Bruce Willis.
