These two have fulfilled the millennials' dream, having become a couple in real life. The stars of The O.C. and Gossip Girl fell in love! Isn't that the crossover we all dreamt about 10 years ago? Leighton and Adam started dating in 2013 after meeting on the set of The Oranges 2 years before that.
At the end of that same year, the couple announced their engagement, and they got married soon after! Despite the incredible popularity they have always managed to keep their relationship private. Brody told GQ last year, that he and his wife are homebodies and do not want to monetize their popularity.
"She’s more inherently private than I am. I don’t seek publicity but if I’m sitting next to you on the subway, I’ll tell you everything about me."
The pair welcomed their first child, Arlo Day, into the world on Aug. 4, 2015. Leighton told Refinery39 why she doesn’t often talk about Arlo: “I think the perception is: You’re an ingenue, or you’re an icon, or you’re a mom. There’s no in-between.”
In April, Meester was spotted out with her belly showing meaning the family of three will soon be four! The pair haven't said anything about the status of Meester's pregnancy yet. Of course, we don't expect these two to tell us about their child a lot, but we hope everything will go smoothly!
The actors' are now parents of 2. Brody confirmed their baby boy's arrival in early September during Hold the Phone TV's The Fun Time Boys Game Night Spectacular. The former O.C star shared: "I have a new kid. Since last I played, I have a new kid," said the former O.C. actor, 40. "I have a boy, and he's a dream. He's a dream boy."
In April, we found out these newlyweds are expecting. Ten months into their marriage, Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, the daughter of famous Arnold Schwarzenegger, are getting ready for the next chapter in their lives.
Sources previously told PEOPLE that the newlyweds were excited to "expand their family as soon as possible" following their June 2019 wedding. Katherine started dating Chris 2 years ago and immediately grew close to his son Jack from his first marriage with Anna Faris.
They spent a lot of time together and grew to like each other. Arnold Schwarzenegger told Extra in January he is looking forward to having grandchildren, but of course, he doesn't want to push his daughter into anything.
“I don’t push it because I know it’s going to happen eventually. It’s up to Chris and her when they want to do that.”
Katherine and Chris look absolutely happy, and we are sure they will be wonderful parents! Recently, in Rob Lowe's podcast, Chris has revealed that when he first met Katherine he was surprised she was single. He also revealed why they are so perfect for each other.
"For me, it really works because I’m always trying to make people laugh and so, she likes to laugh, I make her laugh, it’s a good fit.”

Lyla's middle name pays homage to Katherine's mother Maria Shriver. The new grandma also excitedly commented on the post stating: "So happy for you Lyla Maria is so blessed to have you both as parents you are going to be a amazing mama you already are !!!"
How could we make this list and not mention the hottest couple of last year? The two stars met in 2016 and immediately clicked, but kept most of their relationship private for a while.
"We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," Sophie revealed to Harper's Bazaar UK last year.
They were following each other on IG, and one day Joe messaged Sophie. They chatted for a few weeks and then they decided to meet. Shortly, they became inseparable, and Sophie went on a tour with Joe. In 2019, they got married during ceremonies that took place in Las Vegas and France, much to the delight of their beloved fans.
At the beginning of the year, such sources as Just Jared, E! News, and Us Weekly started writing about Sophie's pregnancy. At first, the news looked like rumors, but a little bit after that, Sophie's pictures with her belly showing started appearing on the Internet.
The couple reportedly welcomed a baby girl by the name of Willa on 22 July 2020. A source close to Turner and Jonas revealed to Entertainment Tonight that they are elated and taking time to enjoy their firstborn with their family. No pictures from the pair just yet but we're sure they'll eventually share a few snaps with fans when they're ready.
Another Gossip Girl star who is expecting a child soon. The star of YOU and his wife since 2017 are expecting their first child. In February, Domino posted on IG and revealed the difficulties she had to go through.

In addition to her career as a musician, Kirke has been certified as a doula for many years.
One of her most recognizable clients is Amy Schumer. Kirke's passion for birth education also inspired her to found Carriage House, a pregnancy care center in New York and Los Angeles that offers resources, education, and doula services to new and expecting mothers.
“I was always interested in becoming a midwife, then at my own birth I didn’t get the support I’d hoped for, and that changed everything. That’s why I became a doula," Kirke told New York Family.
Penn and Domino are very private about their romance but we know they have been married twice! They got married in February of 2017 in an intimate courthouse ceremony in Brooklyn (where they currently reside). Truly romantic. Half a year after they got married in Upstate New York, and their celebrity friends attended their wedding.

Last November she revealed to Extra that her husband wants a large family. "We’ll just go one day at a time, but I definitely do look forward to having more kids…We got time for that.” In 2018, she also told Wonderland some details about her marriage with Russel.
According to the singer, when she's with him she feels like the best woman in the world. After they began dating in 2015, they got married the following summer alongside their friends and family at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
Back in April, on her IG, Ciara shared her baby gender revelation. Now we know for sure it's a boy! The singer is due to give birth soon and since she is constantly posting cute pictures of her everyday life, we will probably know about the birth of her baby fast enough.
On July 23rd, Ciara and Russel welcomed their second child together and indeed he is a baby boy; little Future must be pleased! The couple named their first son Win Harrison Wilson. The singer took to Instagram to share the wonderful news. "Happy Birthday WIN!!! Mommy & Daddy Love You! Win Harrison Wilson7.23.2020 8lbs 1 oz."

“I feel like I was put here to be a mother. I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order.”
Everything worked out in her favor as she got married and 1 year later, she's expecting! Minaj’s pregnancy announcement may not have had a due date, but judging by the size of her baby bump, we can expect a baby Petty to be welcomed to the world soon, and we can’t wait!
