Leighton Meester and Adam Brody welcomed a baby girl named Arlo

The 68th Annual Tony Awards
My favorite undercover couple, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody, had a baby girl recently. At first US Weekly ran this story only with the confirmation that they had their baby last week. These two are very guarded about their private life, to the point where they’ve never confirmed their relationship despite the fact that they were secretly married in 2014. Well now we have confirmation from TMZ that their baby was a girl and that they named her Arlo. Arlo. Um… maybe that’s why they didn’t confirm the name. You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant. What’s more is that TMZ got the birth certificate and baby Arlo was actually born eight weeks ago.

According to the birth certificate obtained by TMZ, Meester gave birth to a girl on August 4 … not last week, as has been reported.

The girl’s name is Arlo Day and she was born just after midnight at a hospital located about 30 miles away from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the usual celebrity hospital of choice.

[From TMZ]

Day is kind of a cute middle name. It’s quirky but not stigmatizing, but Arlo? All I can think of is Arlo Guthrie. As Kaiser said to me, maybe this is a family name though. Congratulations to Leighton and Adam on their new arrival! I know we’re not going to be seeing pics anytime soon, but one can always hope.

    Awwww so sweet. Congrats.
    I have loved her since Gossip Girl.

  2. Lee says:

    Don’t really like the name, but I do like how undercover and truly private they are!
    Congrats!

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Totally love how private they are. There are bigger celebs who keep events like weddings locked down, then turn around and sell the pics. That really turns me off, but I don’t get the impression these two are just paying lip service to wanting privacy at all.

  3. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Congrats! These two just look “right” together somehow, I like their low key style.

    I also liked them both in that Life Partners film.

  4. truthSF says:

    I’ve had a crush on him since the the O.C. days, but theses two are so cute together. Congrats on the new baby.

    So Seth and Summer both just had baby girls. If Ryan future baby is a girl, I can see them making an O.C. return in about 20 years. :D

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      It would need to be a GG/OC Collab..city girl (like Blair) is forced to move with her parents to the west coast and learn how to be a part of the OC culture. Ahh I would def watch this.

  5. Jegede says:

    Congratulations on the no doubt brown eyed, dimpled cheeked beauty.

    So much irony that Louboutined fashionistas Blair and Serena, gave both their baby daughters – traditional male names!!

    Quelle horror! Lol

    (And with the Ben Mackenzie baby drama news, so many OC and GG flashbacks right now).

    • Kitten says:

      I know! I’m loving the GG and OC alumni posts.

      These two are so cute together. She is incredibly pretty-skin to die for.

      • Jegede says:

        Yeah Kitten. Its a real flashback Friday.

        We just need a Marissa Cooper post.

        And 5 years later – playdate pics of Arlo and James.
        (If we ever get actual pics of either of them!!)

      • Moneypenny says:

        Yes. Not to be outdone, Marissa Cooper (or the ghost of Marissa Cooper) has a baby with confused meat head Nate Archibald.

  6. Shambles says:

    Somewhere, Ed Westwick is clutching a bow tie and weeping… (Is what I want to believe).

    I think the name is cool, and I’m sure Leighton is a glowing mama. Congrats to these two!

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    The name makes me think of Raylan’s dad on Justified, but they’re so cute. Congrats!

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Congrats on the baby. Arlo is a terrible name, but I’m sure the baby is adorable.

  9. Jess says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE these two! One of my fave couples!
    Congrats guys, I bet she’s adorable :-)

  10. Franca says:

    From a foreigner’s point if view, Arlo sound more like a girl’s name than James or Wyatt. I like it.

  11. Cynthia says:

    Congrats!! I really love this couple!

  12. mkyarwood says:

    o.o Arlo? I’m sorry, but in Hollywood, she’s just the budget Harlow, non?

  13. K says:

    Arlo is my sons name so I obviously love it, but it doesn’t seem right for a little girl. I hope this doesn’t make the name too popular, I love that his name is unique!

  14. Keaton says:

    Congratulations to Leighton and Adam! They’re such a cute private couple. :)

    Not a fan of the name though. Arlo sounds like a grizzled up old man to me.

  15. Amide says:

    Eugh name. As wack as naming your daughter Milo.

  16. Ivonne O says:

    Arlo is the name of the cute dino from the new Pixar film. Good timing :)

  17. nicegirl says:

    Leighton Meester is such a beautiful lady. I bet baby Arlo is a doll! Congratulations and Blessings!

  18. pfeiffer87 says:

    TMZ got hold of the birth certificate – that is so creepy and an invasion of privacy imo

  19. WinnieCoopersMom says:

    Their baby is seriously going to be so beautiful – and have the best personality. So exciting! Can’t wait to see what she looks like in a couple years (if we ever even get to see a pic of her). I’m picturing brown curls for sure! Adorable

  20. Ennie says:

    they are both so cute and pretty!

  21. Sunshine Gold says:

    I feel bad for all these Hollywood babies with such stupid names.

  22. Sososo says:

    Congrats to them! Leighton is truly an amazing and talented person, I love how she isn’t a fameho unlike her previous costar. I bet Arlo is one gorgeous baby.

    • I Choose Me says:

      How is Blake a fameho? You never see her unless she has something to promote.

      • teacakes says:

        yeah, and “something to promote” frequently included her personal life. I don’t think paparazzi hang around in Utah to catch pictures unless they’ve been called there.

    • teacakes says:

      I have a lot of respect for Leighton, for turning out so seemingly grounded and well-adjusted. and I’m sure she’ll be a better mother to her daughter, than her own mother was to her. I mean, at least she won’t get greedy and sue for her daughter’s earnings after squandering her money on plastic surgery.

  23. I Choose Me says:

    She has a bit of unusual name herself and I’ve heard worse names than Arlo. I wish the new parents every happiness.

  24. teacakes says:

    I don’t get why pearls are being clutched, it’s not a bad name for a kid and isn’t hard to pronounce. As people have pointed out, Leighton has an unusual name herself.

  25. Jess says:

    Great name! She shares it with my son. :) Never imagined it for a girl but I’m sure it’ll settle in as all names do.

  26. Sarah01 says:

    Beautiful couple and Arlo is a lovely name.
