Briar Rose Christensen arrived on Wednesday, Oct. 29, Rachel’s rep confirmed to US Magazine.

“Both mother and baby are healthy and doing well,” her rep said in a statement.

The couple met on the set of Jumper in 2007 and were engaged the following year. In 2010 they split up, but reconciled a short time later. In May 2014, it was announced they were expecting their first child. Although Rachel didn’t ever speak publicly about the pregnancy, friends of the Hart of Dixie star revealed that she was thrilled to become a mom.

In August friends threw Rachel a baby shower and instead of gifts, they brought a birth bead to be made into a necklace.

“Each person gave her a piece of advice and a blessing along with the bead, ” a friend told US Magazine.  The beads were to then be stranded together into a necklace for the mom-to-be. “She will use the beads for strength during labor,”

Here is a look back at Rachel’s pregnancy journey!
