Notoriously private couple Leighton Meester and Adam Brody tied the knot in a secret ceremony in February 2014, and since then, we can count their public appearances together on one hand. On Tuesday, however, the Gossip Girl alum accompanied her husband to a screening and after-party for his new show StartUp in Los Angeles, and the lovebirds looked like life away from the limelight definitely has its benefits.

The couple, who are parents to 1-year-old daughter Arlo Day, took a night off of their parenting duties for the event, and the actress, who turned 30 in April, was beaming as she cuddled up to the O.C. heartthrob on their makeshift date night.

Meester stunned in a romantic sleeveless number with a black skirt and a cream V-neck bodice with a black lace overlay. She wore her golden-hued locks down in relaxed, center-parted waves and kept her makeup simple.

Brody opted to wear a gray blazer jacket for the evening, which he paired with a pink-and-white gingham button up shirt, black pants, and tan dress shoes.

StartUp, a 10-episode hour-long series, will premiere on Sept. 6 on Sony's new streaming network, Crackle.
