Briar Rose!

The name is an obvious homage to Sleeping Beauty, as it was the alias given to the lovely Princess Aurora to protect her from Maleficent's evil curse.

Bilson and Christensen, 33, "are so excited," an insider says, and it sounds like their families and friends are too. "Everyone is beyond thrilled for them."

The O.C. alum was the guest of honor at a baby shower on August 31, featuring family, former classmates, and stars like Jamie King and Natalie Portman.

Instead of gifts, attendees brought a birth bead to be made into a necklace for her "use the beads for strength during labor," a source said at the time.

Bilson and Christensen first met on set of the 2008 film Jumper and got engaged in December 2008. They quietly called off their engagement in 2010.

Reconciling three months later, the two have been together and inseparable ever since, and enjoyed a month-long babymoon in Barbados in June.

Congratulations to the new parents!
