It was with the utmost relaxation and leisure that the Jumper star, Rachel Bilson, spent time on the beautiful Barbados beaches in April 2012. She was there with her beau, Hayden Christensen, her step-mother, Heather Medway and her two half-sisters, Rosemary and Hattie. Hayden's sister's niece was also frolicking along with her in the waters and sands. The white sands of Barbados beaches seemed to ignite an air of romance in the couple.
