What was once a grassroots tradition has, thanks to Internet memes and social media, become a legitimate part of the pop culture calendar. star, mom of one, and all-around casual fashionista finished her post by adding the hashtag “#meanttobe,” referring to her long-term relationship with Christensen.
Actress Rachel Bilson got into the Jedi spirit Wednesday posting a flashback photo on Instagram to commemorate the beloved sci-fi series. Christensen starred as Anakin Skywalker — the future Darth Vader (sorry, spoilers) — in two Star Wars prequels in the early 2000s.
What followed was an engagement in December that year, which they also quietly called off in the August of 2010.
However, that too didn't last long as they got back together within three months.
As you can see above, she posted this throwback photo of the two in April, which looks to be from their actor a happy birthday by writing, "Happy Birthday Handsome [heart emoji] we love you so much #10yearsandcounting #superdaddy #birthdayboy." In July 2015, she even shared a rare photo of the two kissing. "I may have another child, that's still up in the air," she said. Most likely, Bilson and Christensen did what was right for them as a couple and as parents, which is all that really matters.Bilson gave birth to their daughter in October 2014.If you thought the couple was one of those quintessential Ross-and-Rachel affairs, we've got news for you.That might not be the first question off the top of your head, but seeing as they've been together for so long, you probably just assumed they got married at some point. "Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson welcome their daughter Briar Rose Christensen born on October 29, 2014," her rep told in November 2014. They are asking for privacy and subscribe to the No Kids Policy."But, now, it seems the two have gone their separate ways. If so, they never revealed it publicly, which isn't surprising, since they've always chosen to keep most of the details about their relationship pretty private.They have also somehow managed to stay mostly off the radar that many celebrities can't avoid. As for Christensen, he doesn't appear to have social media. You want to be happy, you want your kid to be happy and you want everyone in your life to be healthy and happy."After such a long history together, it's kind of crazy to think about how these two never seemingly took the next step in their relationship.
