Leighton Meester is a mom. The actress gave birth to her and Adam Brody’s first child last month.

Baby girl Arlo Day was born on August 4, shortly after midnight. The couple chose to welcome their arrival at Whittier Hospital, which is about 30 miles outside of Los Angeles. Meester and Brody have not yet commented on the joyous news.

Meester and Brody began dating in early 2013 and got engaged in November of that year. They then secretly wed in February 2014 in Northern California. Gossip Cop reported in May that the couple was expecting its first child together.

Like the birth, Meester and Brody have kept every aspect of their lives together hush-hush. At first, they didn’t acknowledge they were dating. Later, they would not comment about being engaged or married. They similarly never publicly confirmed Meester was pregnant.

Brody and Meester first worked together in the 2011 movie The Oranges and then again in the 2014 film Life Partners. They both rose to fame on teen dramas from Josh Schwartz, with Brody starring on “The O.C.” and Meester on “Gossip Girl.” Congrats to the growing family!
