Rachel Bilson — she of eternal summer in the Josh Schwartz universe of voluble teen tribulations — is pregnant. She is expecting her first kid with Hayden Christensen, whom she has dated since 2007. He was not a character in the Josh Schwartz macrocosm. Understandably, this is all very difficult to wrap one’s mind around, especially first thing in the morning. Remember that Leighton Meester — who played another Schwartzian brunette whippersnapper known for her social scheming — married Bilson’s character’s soul mate’s actor, Mr. Adam Brody.

Yes, the plots of The G-O.C.-sip Girl did devolve into laughable complications in later seasons. Still very watchable, though. And look at them now! Everything is tied up in a glossy, shimmering California sunset of a bow. Just as we dreamed it.
