A new relationship has been brewing in Hollywood, and it is now advancing toward the marriage stage after a big announcement from the couple today. Leighton Meester, who is known primarily for her role in the teen drama series Gossip Girl, will be tying the knot with fellow actor, Adam Brody.
Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are both known for their roles in television, and up until now the couple has been fairly quiet about their relationship, however, it was confirmed that they were dating earlier this year.
The couple have tried to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible, but they were spotted having dinner with another friend in Venice, California in February.
An observer told People Magazine at the time that "Adam put his arm around Leighton and the two smiled at each other while she snuggled into his chest before the trio headed out."
While Meester gained much of her popularity as Blair Waldorf on the hit show, Gossip Girl, which was mostly watched by teenagers, she also had short stints on big shows such as Entourage, House M.D. and 24. She has also appeared in several films, and has a bunch more that are currently in post-production including God Only Knows, a film about Italian gangsters, set in Boston.
Breaks my heart a little that Adam Brody & Leighton Meester are engaged. I'm still rooting for him and Rachel Bilson. I miss Seth & Summer.

Leighton Meester also met her fiancee Adam Brody when the two appeared together in The Oranges, a film that was released in 2011. Brody became a star after appearing on The O.C., which aired on FOX from 2003 until 2007. During the time that the show was airing, he formed a relationship with his co-star Rachel Bilson, and the two famously split up in 2006.
Before getting together with Brody, Meester previously dated Sebastian Stan and Aaron Himmelstein, who she broke up with last year.
Some fans were not very happy with the news that the couple had been engaged, and let others know about it.
If Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are really engaged I'm going to cry
