This isn’t gossip: Leighton Meester really is pregnant!

The singer and former Gossip Girl actress debuted her baby belly while out for lunch with husband Adam Brody in Los Angeles on Saturday.

It’s no surprise the private couple have yet to confirm they are expecting their first child. After tying the knot in early 2014, Meester, 29, and the former The O.C. star, 35, never commented on their secret nuptials.

But the mom-to-be did hint that a family was in her near future during an interview with Nylon in November.

“Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next,” she told the magazine. “I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs.”

Meester, who made her Broadway debut in Of Mice and Men last summer, and Brody, who currently stars on Billy and Billie, met on the set in 2011 of The Oranges, then costarred together again in 2014’s Life Partners. Meester released her debut album, Heartstrings, last October.

POPSUGAR was first to report the news.

Why would People use an old picture and make us link to the picture of her pregnant? This story is about her BEING PREGNANT!

Other people do the samething. Guess you will see her out n bout with adam soon. At least we might get to see a picture are hers. Adam ex girlfriend Rachel bilson won’t talk about her baby or let people see hers. At least these two will be honest about the situation and won’t shy away from mention how its going and show affecction about it. Both Hayden and Rachel haven’t mentioned anything about their baby or shown any pictures. Said how it is to a mommy and daddy. Congrats anyway.

Happy news for a nice, low key, under the radar couple. I know neither one of them is a “megastar” by today’s standards, but they are celebrities and it’s nice that you never hear anything about them, good, bad or indifferent! Congratulations to them!

Spotted: B with a bump. Are we expecting a mini Mother Chucker? Or a little Lonely Boy? Only time will tell. Poor S! Only time will tell what the Stork has in store. Until then, XOXO, Gossip Girl

Sassymom on

Wow!! she is pretty far along.. Great kept secret you two.. and congrats!!!

Kate on

Looking at her belly and appearance, I predict a girl.

Ellen on

She is beautiful, and he is equally handsome. There’s no doubt that this baby will be a looker! Hopefully the child will become friends with Blake Lively’s little girl as they grow up.

Lau on

Can’t believe Seth is 35! Congrats to them, hope this baby will be friends with Rachel Bilson’s🙂

Lily on

Ummm…Delores Pauldo…I’m sure Rachel and Hayden have shared pics and stories about their baby with people who actually matter to them. You know…family and friends. They don’t have to show anything to random strangers on the internet. Not sure why people feel these stars owe them such personal information.

Lily- Right on! They confirmed the birth (and all the details save for weight and length to boot, which is a lot more than many celebs do!), so it’s not like they’re trying to hide the fact that they had a baby (I can understand people getting a bit irked when celebs go the extreme route and won’t even acknowledge that they had a baby!).

Also, they are hardly the first celebs to be private when it comes to their children. Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Carrie-Ann Moss and Ewan McGregor are just a few examples of celebs that rarely if ever talk about their children (and- with the exception of Johnny’s- we see pictures of their kids only on the rare occasions the paparazzi happen to get lucky!). And in my opinion, they have every right to do so (or rather NOT do so, I guess!). The last time I checked, becoming a celebrity doesn’t mean you sign away all of your rights to privacy!

All of that being said, congrats to Adam and Leighton!

Leah on

She’s really glowing, congratulations! And I like that they are super private, more people in Hollywood could learn a thing or two about privacy.

Erin on

uh, pretty sure they met on the set of the OC, the show they both starred on?

congrats to leighton & adam, regardless!

tasha on

Erin, Leighton was never on OC. Just Adam. Congrats to this beautiful couple!

Juli on

She looks adorable pregnant! It’s going to be a gorgeous baby.

Lilah on

So happy for them. I like that they keep their relationship private and not all splashed across front pages. Congratulations and continued love and success!

Her leggings are really dirty. I know that is incredibly petty but they really are.

OMG!! A pregnant woman!! Probably in her 2nd trimester! I’ve never seen this before.
