Leighton Meester and Adam Brody secret is out — they’re now mommy and daddy. The “Gossip Girl” star gave birth to her first child with husband Brody on August 4 at Whittier Hospital in Whittier, California.
“The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Arlo Day, on Aug. 4 according to a birth certificate posted by TMZ,” ABC noted.
The pair kept the news of their baby under wraps for more than a month. Adam and Leighton have always been known for keeping away from the media’s eyes.
Even after the cat was out of the bag and the news of their baby girl is now out in public, they refused to make comments about their private life.
Leighton was last seen out at LA’s Sherman Oaks neighborhood in July, flaunting her baby bump in a white spaghetti top.
“Not only did they manage to keep the birth of their daughter under wraps for almost two months before media caught wind of the occasion, but they also surprised us all by tying the knot in a top-secret ceremony in February 2014,” noted E Online.
Leighton Meester has also been keen on making a move towards music again, now that her baby has been born.
Meester’s most recent debut was at Broadway’s “Mice And Men” in 2014.
“Right now I’m making plans to do more shows and mostly hanging at home. she would also love to get back to Broadway as well as do music. It was not clear if she has plans of going back to TV and movies,” the actress said, notes KPopzstarz.
Adam has most recently joined the cast of the upcoming movie “CHiPs”, which is inspired by the old TV show about motorcycle cops and their race against capitalization. But no matter how many roles Adam plays in the reel life, the role of a father in his real life would probably be the most exciting one for him.
