Above is a photo of Leighton Meester, 29, at an event in April in a floral romper, where she performed. You may know Leighton from Gossip Girl and various film roles but she’s also a singer and released her first full album late last year. (You can hear her first single, Heartstrings, on YouTube. It’s lovely.) Anyway as you can see from the photos, Leighton is wearing a loose outfit. That’s because she was most likely pregnant in those photos!
PopSugar has the exclusive photos of Leighton out with her husband, Adam Brody, this weekend looking very pregnant. She’s in a tight t-shirt and there’s no mistaking her bump. I would say she looks at least six months along, but I’m not the best judge. She also looks so happy! Leighton secretly married Adam Brody, 35, early last year after a very low-key romance. Neither of them are particularly into the spotlight and they don’t attend many events so it was a nice surprise for me to hear about it when they were engaged. I’m so happy that they’re now expecting a baby together!
Unlike Leighton’s former co-star, Blake Lively, she’s not milking her pregnancy for publicity for a project and I doubt she’ll do a ton of pap walks in carefully curated outfits. Popsugar’s photos look more like a happy pap accident and even if they were planned there’s a kind of adorable earnestness to them.
As Popsugar mentions in their coverage, Leighton has spoken about having kids and she told Nylon magazine in October that she was considering having a family. “Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs.” She’ll have a baby soon too. Congratulations to Leighton and Adam on their upcoming arrival!
