Moms supporting other moms! Rachel Bilson came out on Saturday night to attend the Baby2Baby Gala presented by John Paul Mitchell Systems in Culver City, Calif. The 35-year-old actress opened up to ET's Cameron Mathison about the importance of using her status to help other moms out there.

"I am a mom, so I know how important it is to have things for your child and for your babies and your children so to be able to give and support other moms in need – it just feels really good," she dished.

Though she and her longtime partner, Hayden Christensen, are notoriously tight-lipped about their 2-year-old daughter, Briar Rose, Bilson did take a moment to gush about her little girl.


When asked what's she's learned from her child, the O.C. alum replied, "Patience... it's just the most rewarding job in the world and it's the hardest job in the world, so I have so much respect for moms that do it on their own."

Bilson and Christensen welcomed their daughter in late 2014, and quickly settled on the name Briar Rose, which was Sleeping Beauty's real name.

"We both love all things Disney, but Rachel especially was very keen on the name," Christensen previously said.
