18 Things You Never Knew About Leighton Meester

Mommy-to-be Leighton Meester is enjoying life as Mrs. Adam Brody, since the two quietly tied the knot last year.

They are kindred spirits, obviously, since they both shot to fame on teen sudsers; she on Gossip Girl, of course, and he on The OC as Seth “Make ‘Em Swoon” Cohen. They are perfectly suited. But besides the obvious, let’s go behind-the-scenes a little and learn some more about Miss Meester.
