Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen and his longtime partner, Hart of Dixie star Rachel Bilson, are loving life with their 10-month-old daughter Briar Rose.
“I have this little angel in my life now and Rachel and I are so thrilled,” the new dad, 34, shared with E! News. “We don’t sleep as much as we used to, but it’s all so worth it.”
When asked about what he loves about fatherhood, he simply said, “Everything.”
The actor is doing press in support of his upcoming movie, 90 Minutes in Heaven, which hits theaters Sept. 11.
Christensen plays Don Piper, who was pronounced dead after a car crash, but came back to life an hour and a half later after experiencing heaven. Piper’s true story became a best-selling book before it was turned into a movie.
“The whole experience was a pretty intense one. Telling Don’s story that his family went through was an emotional journey,” Christensen shared. “When we started filming, we got into the thick of it and it was an intense experience.”
