Gossip Girl star a new mum

Meester apparently gave birth last week, but the proud parents have remained extremely private about her pregnancy and the rest of their lives.


Leighton Meester and husband Adam Brody have reportedly welcomed their first child.

Meanwhile, as news of the baby’s birth came, fans of “Gossip Girl” have been more than excited.

TMZ reports that the acting couple have named their baby daughter Arlo Day, although they are staying tight-lipped about the details.

If Arlo Day was born in August. 4, then Adam Brody was already a dad during a Reddit AMA last month, during which the actor dished out on the dynamics of his relationship with Leighton Meester. This is the first child for both.

“I do some stuff but she definitely does the heavy lifting [figuratively]”, Brody said when asked about their home life.

Despite all of that, though, Leighton has said, “It wasn’t uncomplicated, but I played outside, I went to the beach”.

Meester and Brody met on the set of The Oranges in 2010 and married in February 2014.

Meester, on the other hand, hinted during an interview with Nylon in November that having a family was in her plans in the near future.

As of writing, reps for the couple has yet to release a comment regarding Meester’s childbirth. It was a very small and intimate wedding with close family and friends.


Aside from an inevitable friendship with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ daughter, James, Brody’s O.C. co-star Ben McKenzie and girlfriend Morena Baccarin announced they are expecting their first child together.
