Blair and Seth Forever! Timeline of Leighton Meester and Adam Brody's Love

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen forever! Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are the real-life crossover couple that television has blessed Us with.

The Gossip Girl alum and the former O.C. star met in 2011 and started dating in 2013. Although they generally keep their romance under wraps, the pair have shared sweet sentiments about each other over the years.

“I wouldn’t change anything [in the past] because I’m happy where I am now,” Meester told PorterEdit in September 2018. “And I think that’s one of the many wonderful parts of not only having a child and meeting your soulmate, but also, I feel really lucky career-wise, really in a place that I want to be.”

The Single Parents star later told Shape magazine in March 2019 that she loves her life at home with Brody and their daughter, Arlo. “I just don’t believe in balance. I think that’s not possible if you’re a working mother — and with single mothers, I cannot even imagine that,” she said at the time. “Some days my husband cooks dinner and some days I do. Other days, I’m too tired and I eat a bowl of cereal for dinner. It’s just the thing we do to make it work.”

She added: “I gain a lot more confidence from time with my friends and family — people whom I love, who love me and whom I’ve built relationships with — and that goes for people at work as well. Truly, those things are what make me the happiest and I think that, if I’m doing well on that side of things, then I’m doing well.”

Meanwhile, Brody revealed a playful detail about his marriage to Meester during a 2014 Reddit chat while responding to a fan who asked about their relationship: “I do some stuff, but she does the heavy lifting figuratively. Literally I do the heavy lifting.”

Nostalgic Moment

The low-key couple gave their first joint interview in June 2017 and revealed that they love the fact that their iconic characters ended up together in real life and they “occasionally” chat about it. “Once a year, randomly, on our Seth and Blair day,” Meester joked to Entertainment Tonight at the time. “It’s good for a laugh. It doesn’t excite us, I think, because we’re just human beings … but it’s exciting to us that it’s exciting to you. It’s cool.”
