Congratulations to Leighton Meester and Adam Brody on the arrival of their second child! Last week, Brody shared the Gossip Girl star had given birth to a baby boy.
Brody spilled the good news on Hold the Phone, saying, “I have a new kid… I have a boy, and he’s a dream. He’s a dream boy.” With those genes, we bet he’s a beautiful baby! It was first reported that Meester was pregnant in April of this year when the family was out for a stroll in Los Angeles.
While pictures of Leighton’s baby bump confirmed the pregnancy news, the couple never officially announced it. Since the start of their relationship in 2013, the lovebirds have been very private about their family life. Even the actors’s wedding in 2014 was a quiet and secret ceremony.
During an interview with GQ last year, The O.C. star discussed his and Leighton’s decision to keep their personal lives out of the limelight. “We’re homebodies. We don’t go to a lot of things that perhaps we could, and we don’t seek out promotion in that way,” he shared.
“We’ve found this great balance so far that really works for us. We’re also not very active on social media.” The actor said that his wife is “More inherently private than” he is, explaining, “I don’t seek publicity, but if I’m sitting next to you on the subway, I’ll tell you everything about me.” Umm, we wish! Anyone know which subway line he rides?
This is the second child the stars have welcomed together. Their new baby boy is joining a big sister, Arlo, who was born in 2015. We won’t be holding our breath for pictures of the newborn, since the couple understandably enjoys their privacy. But we’ll have our pens ready to sign an NDA if they ever need a babysitter!
