The Josh Schwartz-teen drama universe must be spiralling out-of-control as The O.C.’s Adam Brody has reportedly tied the knot with Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester in a secret wedding, according US Weekly.
Yes, that’s right, folks: Seth Cohen is now married to Blair Waldorf and everything was (probably) so chicly ironic it hurt.
Officially, the pair or their publicists have yet to confirm or comment on the news.
In the classic teen drama-verse, this would be both Seth and Blair’s second marriage (his first was with the spunky Summer Roberts — played by Brody’s then girlfriend Rachel Bilson — and hers with the devilish playboy Chuck Bass). In reality, it would the first for the 34-year-old Brody and the 27-year-old Meester.
The two both got their big breaks by starring in teen dramedies (The O.C. and Gossip Girl) created by super-producer, Josh Schwartz. Unfortunately, The O.C. ended in 2007, just months before Gossip Girl premiered, nixing any crossover fantasy any TV fan could have (wouldn’t it have been amazing if West Coast cool went up against Upper East Side snark?!).
Brody and Meester started dating in February 2013, a few years after they worked together on the film The Oranges. They were engaged by November.
UPDATE: Adam Brody confirmed the news when approached by photographers. YAY!
