Leighton Meester and Adam Brody

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are expecting their first child together


In news that has made us feel old, Adam Brody and his wife Leighton Meester are expecting their first child together.

Why old? Because we still associate Adam Brody with the OC's most awkward (but totally fanciable) teen, Seth Cohen. And Seth is just not adult enough to be a dad. Except of course he is, because Seth doesn't exist and Adam is actually 35-years-old. Thirty. Five.

Anyway, moving on. Leighton and Adam revealed they were adding a new member to their family when Leighton was spotted with an unmissable baby bump whilst out for lunch in LA at the weekend.

A notoriously private couple – after secretly tying the knot early last year, the couple have still not commented on their nuptials almost 18 months later – we're not expecting Instagram pictures of Adam kissing Leighton's baby bump a la Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

But, that's not to say that Leighton's always been tight-lipped on her want for her family. Speaking to Nylon magazine last year, the actress admitted that kids were next on the agenda.

'Most people I know are starting to get married. It'll be kids next,' the 29-year-old actress told the magazine. 'I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I've got dogs.'

And, of course, Leighton will be able to pick the brains of her former Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively on all things pregnancy. Maybe Blake will even give Leighton her maternity wear cast-offs. And if she doesn't want them, we'll have them…
