Leighton Meester and Adam Brody reportedly married in secret over the weekend. E! Online is reporting that it happened just three months after the pair got engaged in November last year.
They had only been publicly together for nine months when rumors spread that they were engaged. However, it seems that the couple likes to keep things private and may have been together for longer than that. At no point has the couple confirmed any of the news that they are together or engaged, so it is unlikely that the two will confirm they are married.
Meester is well-known for her role as Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl and is nothing like her character. Blair likes to be the center of attention and make sure everyone knows who she is with and what she is doing, as long as it works in her best interest. The 27-year-old actress likes to keep her private life private and away from the media’s eye.
Brody, 34, was on O.C. where he dated co-star Rachel Bilson. He and Meester met on the set of The Oranges in 2011 and seemed to have hit it off from the beginning. Sources have told US Weekly that the pair have made their relationship official through Holy matrimony, according to Huffington Post. No other details have yet been provided. Huffington Post has tried to find out more about the Brody and Meester marriage, but so far the publication has heard nothing.
The rumors only started because Brody was spotted wearing a ring on his wedding finger. Fans caught photos while he was at LAX, and then tweeted the news. The band on his finger was a simple, gold wedding band traditionally worn by men.
It makes sense that the pair would opt for a secret wedding. It is clear they like to keep things private, and announcing when their wedding was would just lead to a lot of media attention. By keeping it secret, they have been able to celebrate with their nearest and dearest and keep it at that. The two have always tried to keep their relationship out of the public eye, but failed when they have been snapped together now and then. However, the media attention has mainly been over the news that they were together and then later about their possible engagement nine months later. Between those periods, they have hardly touched the news together.
Meester is currently in Chicago. After Gossip Girl was finished at the end of the last season, she decided to switch the TV for the stage. She is currently rehearsing for Of Mice and Men, which will be on Broadway. She is joined by another TV actor, Jim Parrack, who was in the vampire series True Blood. The 27-year-old will remain in Chicago until the end of February, when rehearsing finishes.
For now, all that can be said is that congratulations may be in order. The Gossip Girl and O.C. fans are still trying to work out whether the rumors are true, but it seems that Meester and Brody secretly married.
