Only huge fans of Sleeping Beauty will recognize the subtle nod towards Disney in Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen's new baby name.

The 10-month-old tot is called Briar Rose, which is commonly recognized as Princess Aurora's pseudonym in the legendary Walt Disney adaptation of the Grimm brothers fairytale.

And it's no happy coincidence either! Appearing on Hallmark Channel's Home & Family the other day alongside co-star Kate Bosworth, he talked about his new movie 90 Minutes to Heaven, as well as opened up about the origin of his little girl's name.

He admitted:

"There is a Disney reference there [...] The original Sleeping Beauty was called Briar Rose."
