So sad and scary.

The 34-year-old never publicly addressed the topic until Wednesday night, when she and fellow momma Kristen Bell were honored by No Kid Hungry as their newest Champions!
When Rachel spoke to the crowd, The O.C. alum explained that, while she's only a momma-of-one, her maternal instincts kick in for any child:
"I'm a new mom…ish. She's almost 1, which is crazy. But you kind of feel like a mom to all kids at this point. Finding out that so many kids in our country are hungry is just not OK. So, getting involved was very important to us."
On the event's red carpet, she revealed why she feels so passionately about this, explaining:
Why are dads so adorable?
In this new clip, the 90 Minutes in Heaven actor explains what he loves most about being a dad to the nine-month-old.
His answer is definitely going to make you go "awwww"!
So go to the 4:00 mark to hear Hayden get all gushy (below)!
Introducing Briar Rose to the world…
And on Sunday, the former Hart Of Dixie star took to Instagram to — sort of — show her off to the world!
The snap features boyfriend Hayden Christensen blowing bubbles as their daughter wears a cute flower-patterned hat!
Style definitely runs in the family!
The hip couple are notoriously private so we're glad they gave their millions of social media followers a glimpse of their bundle of joy!
Also curious as to why they named their baybay Briar Rose?!
It's a reference to the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty where Princess Aurora is given the lovely moniker by the fairies who shelter her!
How clever! We just hope Rachel shares more pics of her brood in the future! ADORBZ!
The cute couple share a kiss in a new selfie Rachel posted to her Instagram on Thursday.
And judging by her use of the arrow-stricken heart emoji as a caption, it's safe to say the 33-year-old is smitten.
While the picture is perfect, the one thing that could have made this shot better would have been the addition of baby Briar Rose!
The parents have yet to share a pic of their eight-month-old daughter!
Maybe one day, but until then, we're just glad to see that they're one happy family!

Are we dreaming?!
It looks like the creators of Cruel Intentions: The Musical — currently running at The Rockwell in Los Angeles — already have their next project lined up: The O.C. Musical!
That's right! A musical based on the 2003-07 Fox hit about drama in the wealthy upper class suburb of Newport Beach!
Creators Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin silently created a brand new Twitter account for the production and have been dropping hints for weeks.
But on Wednesday they made it official by tweeting out that the show will be a one night only performance that takes place
The Hart of Dixie actress took to IG in a rare moment and shared an adorable pic of her daughter, Briar Rose Christensen — well kind of!!
And from the pic she shared (above) it seems that daddy and daughter got some matching Star Wars swag. LOVES it!
The brunette beauty has certainly laid low since the birth of her mini-me. But when she IS spotted out and about, her fit post baby-bod has been unreal!
The new mom has had some down moments — especially since the CW announced the cancellation of her southern comedy last month after only four seasons. Whomp, whomp!
But it seems Rachel's not focusing on work news and is all about her little one right now!
Rach, feel free to share more pics of Briar Rose — only if you want to!!
While it may not have gotten renewed again, it will live on in our Harts.
But, as far as TV time goes, that's a wrap for Hart of Dixie.
The CW's medical dramedy aired its last episodes of season four back in March, but now it's confirmed those were the last episodes period.
It's not like we're really surprised. The southern-set show had run its course. And besides, during the finale — two months ago — creator Leila Gerstein took to Twitter to say that she "would have gone 17 years." Talk about a spoiler alert.
Led by Rachel Bilson, the drama was one of the network's best performers on Hulu, but that just wasn't enough to give it another chance.
It doesn't seem like all of the execs are taking it too hard, though. EPs Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have moved on to a new frontier, an upcoming drama on ABC called Astronaut Wives Club. Excellent.
As for Dixie, it's not see you later. It's goodbye.
