It's been awhile since we've seen our dream teen queen Rachel Bilson, star of the early 2000s guilty pleasure The O.C., out on the red carpet. And since then the breezy California girl has added two new roles to her resume — fiancée and new mom! It's been almost a year since Bilson and to-be-hubby Hayden Christensen welcomed their daughter Briar Rose and the new mama is finally opening up about her gorgeous girl back at home! And about how motherhood is influencing even her fashion choices!

Considering this is just her second red carpet appearance since giving birth, you gotta admit that the girl looks good! Sparkling in a flirty, pink floral dress, the actress attended the No Kid Hungry charity benefit, according to E! News, where she spoke of her mighty maternal instincts. "I'm a new mom-ish. She's almost one, which is crazy. But you kind of feel like a mom to all kids at this point." Bilson went on to mention why this specific charity has such a special place in her heart, saying "Finding out that so many kids in our country are hungry is just not okay. It's a little thing that can go over your head, but it's so important... They're trying to help kids, and having these programs where they eat, they can achieve their goals even better because they're well fed and because they can focus."

Bilson totally sounds like the type of mom everyone on the block wants to have playdates with! And what about that flirty, fun pink dress? Well, even that was mom-approved! "I needed to wear a dress that I could wear a nursing bra with! All [of my] clothes need to be able to [accommodate] a nursing bra," the star told Us Weekly. Think the same will apply for Bilson's future wedding dress? One thing's for sure — with a tiny tot named Briar Rose, it's sure to be a Disney fairytale wedding and we can't wait to see!
