In news worthy of an emotional musical montage on The O.C., forever TV teens Leighton Meester — who dropped her EP last October — and husband Adam Brody had a baby girl, according to Us Weekly; the publication also shared that the newborn’s name is Arlo Day.
The private couple never confirmed the pregnancy, but it’s 2015 and TMZ has the birth certificate, so mystery solved.
Of course, for fans of a certain age, this happy news particularly delighted the Internet, because on the very day that Meester and Brody’s birth announcement was made public, it also came out that Brody’s onetime O.C. brother Ryan Atwood — err, Ben McKenzie — was also expecting a baby (with Gotham co-star Morena Baccarin).
Time to cue up “Hallelujah” and ponder the passage of time.
