Showbiz Rachel Bilson puts on a loved-up display with new boyfriend Zac LaRoc during beach day in Malibu

Rachel Bilson appeared to be in a great mood as she enjoyed a beach day in Malibu with her new beau Zac LaRoc on Monday.

The actress, 40, and her artist boyfriend didn’t shy away from showing each other affection, as Zac was seen embracing the beauty from behind at one point.

The star seemed to enjoy her partner’s affection, and later flashed a bright smile while strolling the beach and sporting a tie-dye sweater, black sweatpants, and UGG boots.

The California native kept her long dark tresses hidden underneath a black baseball hat, and sported a black pair of sunglasses for the outing.

Meanwhile her other half looked casual cool for the day, wearing a grey goodie and a pair of grey shorts.

Zac also covered up his head with a hat, but unlike his partner, he decided to enjoy the beach barefoot.

The duo were previously spotted stepping out on a date in October 2021, as they took in the immersive Van Gogh exhibit in Los Angeles.

The relationship comes after the Lovestruck actress made her red carpet debut with funnyman Bill Hader, 43, at the Golden Globes in 2020, only to call it quits on the union six months later.

Prior to Hader, the O.C. alumna was engaged to Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen, 41, though the pair called off their romance before the wedding, in August 2010.

The couple reconciled three months later, and had a daughter, Briar Rose, seven, in October 2014, before separating once again in September 2017, after nearly ten years together.

In April 2021, the beauty appeared on the Betches Moms podcast and discussed her co-parenting strategy with Hayden amid the coronavirus lockdowns.

‘Luckily [my daughter’s] dad is pretty hardcore with [the COVID restrictions],’ she said. ‘But you have to trust each other and you are bubbled up.’

She added: ‘But it’s also nice because she’s had the opportunity to have another house to go and not be stuck in our house the entire time so I’m grateful for that and we’ve just handled it. Survival mode.’

Rachel previously revealed she will only date someone if they are ‘all about her kid’ in a 2019 interview with Nick Viall, on his The Viall Files podcast.

‘I was talking to these guys a few months back, anytime I would bring my daughter up, they would never pursue the question or ask more about her. It was a red flag because anyone that you’re going to get involved with, if you have a kid, they have to be all about the kid. I always put it out there.’

‘She’s my world and I talk about her all the time. How f***ed up would it be if I hid that? … If you’re going to pursue something with someone, they have to be interested in the kid or be willing to be around the kid.’

The actress also admitted she won’t let her daughter meet any of her dates unless it’s ‘serious’ adding, ‘She has not met anyone as of yet and it would have to be someone I know I’m going to be with. It would have to be a very serious relationship.’
