People magazine and US Weekly have confirmed the engagement of Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, known to teen drama fans as Seth and Blair.

Brody and Meester both rose to fame on Josh Schwartz-created series, ‘The O.C’ and ‘Gossip Girl’, respectively. The couple began dating earlier this year after acting together and becoming friends at first on the set of indie flick ‘The Oranges’ in 2011.

To their fans, Brody and Meester are perceived as being almost exact opposites. On ‘The O.C’, Brody portrayed Seth, an extremely sweet, somewhat dorky, boy-next-door type from the West Coast. Meester, however, is best known from ‘Gossip Girl’ as Blair Waldorf- a snobby, arrogant, manipulative, and downright mean New Yorker. Luckily, they are nothing like their on screen personas… well, perhaps Brody is a tad sweet.

Besides both starring in Schwartz’s series, they also famously dated former co-stars; Brody dated ‘The O.C’ star Rachel Bilson, while Meester dated ‘Gossip Girl’ actor Sebastian Stan. This marks the first engagement and marriage for both Brody and Meester.

Meester is confirmed to star in the upcoming features ‘The Judge’ and ‘Life Partners’, which also happens to co-star Brody. Brody can next be seen in ‘Think Like a Man Too’ and most recently appeared as Kristen Bell’s boyfriend on ‘House of Lies’.
