Leighton Meester, best known for her role as Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, is expecting her first baby. She and hubby Adam Brody are over the moon.

Us Weekly reports that Meester was spotted out and about in L.A., a couple of days ahead of their pregnancy announcement. Her baby bump was front and center, however, with absolutely no mistaking that she's expecting.

It was Monday when the publication confirmed Leighton Meester and Adam Brody's official news. The couple met back in 2011, on the set of The Oranges. They married in a secret ceremony--so secret that some of their former costars weren't even invited--in February of 2014.

"I did not go to his wedding. I think they wanted to kind of keep it super low-profile, so I did not take umbrage," The O.C.'s Ben McKenzie said in an interview at the time. "His wife is awesome. Leighton's great."

In addition to acting, Leighton Meester has quite the set of vocal cords. The actress has both written and recorded music in the past few years--even singing with Tony Bennett in an episode of Entourage. She made her Broadway debut in 2014 alongside James Franco, starring in Of Mice and Men.

In addition to the titles of actress, singer, and wife, Leighton Meester will soon be able to add 'mother' to her repertoire of talents.

Last August, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody joked about how many kids they planned to have.

I say twelve," he quipped. "And I decide."

Perhaps this pregnancy will wind up being just one of many for Leighton Meester?
