It’s official: Adam Brody and Leighton Meester have welcomed a new addition to the family.

No, there wasn’t an announcement — the news came through rather unconventional means, though Brody did share it himself.

The O.C. alum appeared on Twitch’s Hold the Phone TV The Fun Time Boys Game Night Spectacular and reportedly confirmed that he and Meester were now parents of two.

“Since last I played I have a new kid,” he said, adding that it’s "a boy and he's a dream, he's a dream boy.”

Speculation began back in April when The Daily Mail published photos of the longtime couple taking a walk with their 4-year-old daughter, Arlo. In the photos, Meester appears to be visibly pregnant in a pair of overalls.

The actor duo met on the set of The Oranges in 2011 but reportedly didn’t begin dating until 2013. They wed in 2014 and welcomed their daughter in August of 2015.

As you may have gleaned, the couple is incredibly private. In August of 2019, Brody told GQ "We're homebodies. We don't go to a lot of things that perhaps we could and don't seek out promotion in that way,” adding, ”I'm not sh—ing on anyone who monetizes that aspect of their life because I get it. But we've found this great balance so far that really works for us."
