Rachel Bilson puts baby plans on hold

Actress Rachel Bilson is torn on her motherhood dreams because part of her wants to quit acting altogether once she becomes a mum - but she insists she couldn't walk away from a hit TV show.

The former The O.C. star, who has reconciled with former fiance Hayden Christensen, admits she has always dreamed of starting a family - but she doesn't want to be a career mum.


However, just as she started getting broody her TV career took off again with hit new show Hart of Dixie - and now she has a personal dilemma.


The 30 year old tells Nylon magazine, "I've always wanted kids - it's sort of like an obsession, but I want to do it right, where I don't have to work.


"I've heard the stories, and I know it's possible. I don't know if I want that, though. I'm not sure if I want to continue to work when I have kids. But if the show really takes off, I don't think I want to wait too long to have children, either. You have to weigh up your options. I'll figure it out when I get there. I'm a firm believer that everything will fall into place and it will all work out."
