Rachel Bilson kids
Briar Rose Christensen (daughter)
- Date of birth: October 29, 2014 (8 years)
- Zodiac sign: Scorpio
The first and foremost priority for Rachel is to keep her daughter secure and stable. The actress believes it is unnecessary for Briar to be too much aware of what hurts her mom’s feelings.
Briar Rose is a happy child, though living without a father nearby – she feels loved from the people she loves the most. Briar experiences nothing but unconditional love shown from her parents’ side. Being strong-willed like her mom and super-athletic like her dad, the girl gets everything that is needed for joy and happiness when you are hardly 6 years old.
Janice Stango (mother)
Date of Birth: April 29
Rachel sincerely adores her mom, a sex therapist and an exceptionally stylish woman. Janice Stango played a significant role in her daughter’s development as both a woman and an actress.
Rachel has always had her mom for support and help, when living through numerous parenting difficulties. As a matter of fact, in 2018, when Rachel was shooting the Take Two drama and had to temporarily live in Vancouver, Janice moved nearby to look after a 4-year-old granddaughter.
Janice divorced Danny, Rachel’s father, when the future actress was only 9, that is why she understands all the daughter’s hardship. Rachel herself remembers her mother showing her nothing but love during the break-up procedure, making her feel totally secure at that time and unspeakably thankful now.
Daniel "Danny" Bilson (father)
- Date of birth: July 25, 1956 (66 years)

Danny did not take his career prospects for granted and worked aggressively to gain broad recognition in the movie business. At the beginning of his professional way, he worked like a dog on creating screenplays. Danny finished his first script in 1985, co-writing it with Paul DeMeo. The movie, titled Trancers, became known worldwide as a perfect example of cult classic masterpiece.
Afterwards, Bilson went on writing screenplays which resulted in a growing number of cult classic movies within different genres, moving shoulder by shoulder with his old and dedicated friend Paul. The famous son of director Bruce Bilson also tried his hand in film production, having succeeded in one take.
Early in the 21st century, Daniel Bilson sealed the deal with Electronic Arts, getting involved in guiding creative and narrative IP development there while working on the first version of the Sims game. Overlapping with his time devoted to gaming industry, the man continued writing comics and scripts, even for DC Comics and Netflix.
Nowadays, Daniel Bilson is Chair of the USC’s Interactive Media and Games Division and is working on a couple of unannounced projects in addition.
Danny broke up with the mother of his first daughter, Rachel, in 1990, after almost a decade of seemingly happy marriage. Seven years later, he married Heather Medway, who was a popular actress in the late 1990s.
John Bilson (brother)
- Date of birth: June 8, 1976 (46 years)

Rachel’s elder brother is a graffiti artist based in LA (Instagram) not fond of publicity at all. The actress does not mention him in interviews and avoids posting photos with John on the net. Rachel only said once that being groovy adolescents constantly searching for adventures, her brother and she herself had a horrible car crash which influenced her attitude to driving a car for a long time.

In the year of 2011, Rachel even brought Hattie to the Teen Choice Awards not only to let the little girl enjoy the special atmosphere of that event, but to introduce her to John Bilson – Hattie’s half-brother – for the first time.
