Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are probably engaged: super cute couple?

I know that about five people are going to care about this story, but when I read this news on Radar Online I actually smiled wildly and that did happy “stiff clap” thing that would have been embarrassing if anyone were to witness it. I love Adam Brody from his OC days, and I have a lot of fondness for Leighton Meester, and how low-key she is. Leighton is of course from Gossip Girl, and unlike her co-stars she hasn’t tried to hustle her way into our lives, and she doesn’t have much to prove. So together these two make me really happy. I wish there were more photos of them together, but that just goes to show how under the radar they are. Here’s more on their engagement, which comes after less than a year of dating:

“Leighton and Adam are crazy about each other and have talked about getting married eventually,” an insider tells Star. “But she had no idea he would propose so soon! It was the surprise of her life and she’s ecstatic!”

Adam, 33, and Leighton, 27, have been friends for years, getting close in 2011 while co-starring in the independent film, The Oranges. In January they took their relationship to the next level and were soon spotted taking in art exhibits at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and traveling together through Bangkok in February.

Adam previously dated director Lorene Scafaria in 2010 and his co-star on The O.C., Rachel Bilson, for three years. Leighton was most recently linked to actor Aaron Himelstein, which followed her 2-year relationship with Gossip Girl co-star Sebastian Stan ending in 2010.

“Right now their plan is to get married next summer,” adds the insider. “They are still deciding if they want a destination wedding or if they’ll marry in Southern California somewhere.”

While there are no plans for children in the immediate future the couple do have two dogs together, Penny Lane and Trudy.

[From Star Magazine]

Well the source is Star Magazine, but it’s not like they’re actively trying to dig up news on Adam and Leighton, so I believe it. I loved that detail about how they have two dogs together, and their dogs’ names are creative and cute. I hope this is true and that they’re planning on marrying next summer! I would also love to see just one wedding photo, but I doubt that’s going to happen. Neither of them seems particularly into the Hollywood scene.

    I almost said, “No! She’s too good for him!” but it’s Star, so…

      I disagree. I think they make such a wonderful couple. I’ve always liked Adam since O.C but based on her character on gossip girl I kinda judged Leighton a bit, I don’t know why. But in actual sense she seems like a really nice, warm and humble person. They look cute together.

  6. lower-case deb says:

    wow, they’re really so cute together. she looks young like that, the hair and minimal makeup. can’t believe this is the same leighton who wore that godawful marchesa lace jumpsuit.

    i also like how low-key they are. what are their upcoming projects, if any. matrimony?
    all the best for this couple, anyhow.

  7. CaliforniaDreams says:

    Love both of them, yay!

  8. Erinn says:

    Awwwwww they’re freaking cute together. I love Adam Brody. I love that slightly nerdy, dark haired kind of guy.

    Star is also not a complete mess – they do get quite a few things right. But like Celebitchy said, who would be purposely digging into Leighton Meester and Adam Brody news? I didn’t even know they were dating.

  9. Melibea4ever says:

    I really like them together!

  10. Pink says:

    Blair! Seth! I :heart:.

    “unlike her co-stars she hasn’t tried to hustle her way into our lives, and she doesn’t have much to prove” …

    a shade, I see hahaha. I agree, BTW.

  12. Psychospaz says:

    I think they’re so cute! I’m super excited because I like them both.

  13. tifzlan says:

    I didn’t even know they were dating LOL

  14. paris hilton says:

    I always likes Leighton, her acting, and her GG outfits. Never understood why boring Mumbles Whatsherface was the breakout star of that show instead of her.

    • lady mary. says:

      quite agree!blair and her schemes were one of the fun part of gg, happy for tthese 2 ,if its true

  15. Sabrina says:

    Congratulations to the two of them.

  16. Simmie says:

    YAY! This teen soap romance is making me very happy. I love both of them and hope they’ll have a very happy life together.

  17. Allie says:

    Dream couple. But is it sad that I know that his dog, Penny Lane, is from his relationship with Rachel Bilson?

  18. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I didn’t even know they were dating! I love them both so this makes me incredibly happy.

  19. Happyhat says:

    After spending time on this website, I wonder why anyone in Hollywood bothers to get married at all.

    It’s like divorce is inevitable…although I’m sure there are plenty of happy marriages (you just never hear about them, because they’re not news-worthy).

  20. Shannon1972 says:

    Really cute, attractive couple…good for them! I don’t know why she isn’t a bigger star than the blonde one who married Ryan somethingorother. I’m under-caffeinated…their names are seriously escaping me right now. The only Ryan that comes to mind is Gosling, and I don’t feel like googling it. Can picture their faces though.

    Anyhow, she was my favorite on GG, aside from Chuck. Their evil scheming was so much fun!

  21. Megan says:

    I always wondered why everyone made such a fuss over Blake Lively when Leighton was so much better. I think she’s the better actress by far and, IMO, much prettier.

    Blair Waldorf was the best part of the show. I still love the Queen B 🙂

  22. Ai says:

    I also thought she was the true star of GG, certainly the only (with Ed) reason why I followed the show to it’s end. Don’t know much about Adam but it seems they are good together. Congrats and I hope she releases more movies and her indie acoustic music etc.

  23. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    I know its just my dreams, but some how I always pictured him and Rachel Bilson getting back together after she realized just how lame Christian Hadenson is lol.

  24. Lucy says:

    How sweet! All the best for them 🙂

  25. An says:

    Aww! Good for them!

  26. Brittney says:

    This makes me so, so happy. I was thrilled when I found out they were a couple, but they’re so very low-key that I forgot all about it! Good for them. I’ve loved Adam since “Now What”… but I’ve still never met anyone who remembers that show.

  27. MrsNoodles says:

    I love Leighton and I love him. Is it bad that I still hold out some hope that Adam and Rachel Bilson will get back together? I loved them.

  28. Migdalia says:

    My OTP which I am not really “into” who is dating who but these two seem made for each other…Jennifer Lawrence and Nick Hoult. Last week it was rumored they got quietly engaged cause of a ring she wore at the Roosevelt with David o Russel, and now the Daily Telegraph (?) reported yesterday they are eloping in Prague.

  29. Sarah says:

    I saw this earlier and was like, “Meh, it’s Star Magazine, I can’t get too excited.” But I just saw that People tweeted a confirmation and got waaaayyyy too happy! I loved Adam on The OC and while initially I liked Blake Lively on Gossip Girl and Serena was the star, Leighton/Blair quickly overtook her as the better actress and better character on the show. Love this sooooo much.

  30. Miss M says:

    I really like them together!!! 🙂

  31. nicegirl says:

    She is darling. Loved her in that country movie with GP and that cute Garrett H dude.

  32. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    If this is true- good for them! I’m more of an Adam fan, but they do make a cute couple.

  33. Ohemgee says:

    I’d have a threesome with them.

  34. mac says:

    This makes me really happy. Love both of them. I really want to see The Oranges

  35. Caroline says:

    Leighton can do better.

  36. E-V-E says:

    yaay for Leighton! She seems like a good girl and a professional, much better acting skills than Blondie LongLegs, and even a decent singer (though her production was cheesy club crap).
    Hope she picked right and picks even better roles in the future haha.
