Leighton Meester and her boyfriend Adam Brody are engaged, if the swirling rumours are proved true. The Gossip Girl actress and The O.C's actor have been caught in the media tractor beam that seems to continually scan eligible celebrity couples for hints of wedding-related scoops but if the reports are correct then this is rather exciting news indeed.

Is Leighton Meester Engaged?

The couple have only been dating for around 10 months after meeting on the set of The Oranges in 2011 where they got "close and friendly" according to Radar. Nevertheless, they seem to be pretty sweet on one another and are one of Hollywood's hottest young couples at the moment.

Star Magazine was the first to report the whispers of wedding bells, quoting a source who apparently said: "Leighton and Adam are crazy about each other and have talked about getting married eventually. But she had no idea he would propose so soon! It was the surprise of her life and she's ecstatic!"

Naturally, die-hard Gossip Girl fans will react to the news with a cry of "Why not Chuck Bass," referring to the character actor Ed Westwick plays in the hit New York teen drama. However, if Leighton, 27, and Adam, 33, are to be married and all is well, the Texan actress will have found her real life Chuck Bass - hopefully minus the rollercoaster relationship of course!

Even though they weren't in the same teen drama, Adam and Leighton have excited all of their fans with the prospects of a sweet "Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf" fairytale story as life and fiction seemingly intertwine.

Adam & Leighton Are Keeping Quiet On Any Talk Of Marriage.

Celebuzz has helped to further add to the snowballing engagement rumours by reporting that the couple are considering getting married in south California. "Right now their plan is to get married next summer," Star's insider said "They are still deciding if they want a destination wedding or if they'll marry in southern California somewhere."

Neither Adam nor Leighton have publically commented on the rumours yet.
