Actors Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have welcomed their second child together! Adam, known for his role as Seth Cohen on The O.C., confirmed the new on Twitch during Hold the Phone TV’s The Fun Time Boys Game Night Spectacular.
The actor shared, “I have a new kid. Since last I played, I have a new kid. I have a boy, and he’s a dream. He’s a dream boy.” There you have – it’s a boy! The couple, who are known for keeping their personal lives very private, have not shared the name they’ve chosen for their son yet.
In fact, the news that the couple was expecting was revealed only when they were spotted on a walk together in March of this year. Leighton’s growing baby bump was in full view, confirming the news that she was pregnant! It had been the first time the actress had been spotted out since January.
The Gossip Girl alum and her husband share a daughter together named Arlo Day, who was born in the fall of 2015. The couple rarely discuss or make appearances with their daughter, and that will likely be the same with their son. In 2017, Leighton shared with Refinery 29, “I don’t talk about Arlo very much. I am very proud of that area of my life. But I’m also really proud of the show, and of the work I do. I think the perception is: You’re an ingenue, or you’re an icon, or you’re a mom. There’s no in-between.”
The couple met in 2011 on the set of The Oranges and began dating in 2013. They made their first public appearance as a couple in June of 2013 at the premiere of Adam’s movie Some Girl(s). In 2014, they wed in a private ceremony in Northern California by the ocean.
Congratulations to Leighton and Adam on the arrival of their baby boy! We wish them all the best.
