I’m sure as soon as she heard the news, Blake Lively started packing up a hand-woven basket full of James Reynolds’ old heirloom Chantilly lace fainting bonnets and sent it over to her former Gossip Girl co-star with a note that said “Ah do declare! It appears you’ve come down with a case of the tummy vapors!”
According to UsWeekly, Leighton Meester (aka Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl) is knocked up, and has been for a while. And that’s all they’ve got! No picture of Leighton’s hands making the shape of a heart over her stomach, no mention of the moon and whether or not they’re over it. Nothing! Neither Leighton nor Adam Brody (aka Seth Cohen from The O.C.) have said anything about the fetus growing inside her and I doubt they ever will. When Leighton and Adam got married a little over a year ago, they kept that shit a secret until someone spilled the beans, so that might happen with their baby too. It’s like they always say: first comes rarely-papped love, then comes a secret marriage, then comes…actually, I’m not sure what comes next. I’m only really familiar with desperate-for-attention types who run to the press as soon as the first molecule of piss hits the stick.
All I can hope is that if Leighton and Adam have a girl, they pay tribute to the most underrated character from Happy Gilmore by naming her Meester Meester.
