Adam Brody Reveals His Favorite Tradition with Daughter Arlo: ‘We Hike Around Our House’

Babies are known to be early risers, but new dad Adam Brody doesn’t seem to mind one bit.

“I do a nice morning hike with my daughter,” The O.C. alum, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively of his 1-year-old little girl Arlo Day with musician and actress wife Leighton Meester. “That’s always a treat.”

Continues Brody, “It’s something to do in the wee hours of the morning when she’s up. It’s a good activity for both of us.”

“We hike around our house,” the actor adds. “Watching the sunrise with a kid is pretty fun. I have her in the [Baby] Bjorn.”

Brody wed Meester, 30, in an ultra-private ceremony in early 2014, one year after they began dating. And their daughter’s birth was kept under wraps, as well, with confirmation coming more than a month after she arrived.

The couple were recently snapped out at the premiere for Brody’s new Crackle series StartUp, which debuts Sept. 6.

Brody shares that he likes to spend time building “the kids stuff” around his house, like Arlo’s slide and rocking chair.

But he also admits he suffered an injury recently — spraining his MCL while surfing — that makes keeping up with Arlo a little more difficult than usual.

“Three weeks later, I’m still limping. I can bend it, but it hurts,” he says. “Chasing the kid is pretty hard! It’s put a big monkey wrench in that.”

The littlest gossip girl — or boy — has arrived.

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are new parents after welcoming their first child earlier this month, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The private couple have yet to confirm the pregnancy or the birth, but that’s no surprise: After tying the knot in early 2014, Meester, 29, and the former The O.C. star, 35, never commented on their secret nuptials.

But the mom-to-be did hint that a family was in her near future during an interview with Nylon in November.

“Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next,” the former Gossip Girl star told the magazine. “I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs.”

Meester, who made her Broadway debut in Of Mice and Men last year, and Brody, who most recently starred on Billy and Billie, met on the set in 2011 of The Oranges, then costarred together again in 2014’s Life Partners. Meester released her debut album, Heartstrings, last October.

Reps for the couple had no comment on the happy news.

33 Hot TV Couples Who Dated in Real Life

You know that thing about never dating a coworker? Yeah, that's solid advice for a reason. What happens when you have a fight or break up and things get ugly? Things get awkward for everyone.

But sometimes people just don't care. Attractions cannot be overcome. Some magnetic sorcery takes over and suddenly, BAM! Coupledom.

That's what happened for 33 tv couples who dated in real life. Well, something like that happened. 

It makes sense. Two people working in the same industry and/or the same environment day in and day out are bound to have a great deal in common. It makes for easy pickings. And sometimes leads to ultra hot on-screen chemistry. (Looking at you, Nian!)

Some of the couples here worked out and are still together. Others? Well, they weren't so lucky. It turns out two people need more than just a shared workspace to stick together for the long haul.

1. Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki

Kaley cuoco and johnny galecki
Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecky play The Big Bang Theory's longest-running couple, Penny and Leonard, but not many people knew that the two were secretly dating for nearly THREE YEARS. Kaley is now married to Ryan Sweeting, but she and her co-star are still good friends.

2. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev

Nina dobrev and ian somerhalder at coachella
The Vampire Diaries fandom STILL wants Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder to find their way back to one another despite the fact that Ian is now married to Nikki Reed and Nina Dobrev has left the show. Delena forever. Nian for never.

3. Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols

Sophia bush austin nichols
Sophia Bush has a thing for dating co-stars. Not only did she date and marry one co-star, after that marriage was annulled, Bush teamed up with Austin Nichols onscreen and off. These two dated in the time of Twitter and could be found sending cute little tweets back and forth before breaking up. They (seem to) remain friends. We're sure she congratulated him on his probably impending death as a newcomer on The Walking Dead Season 6.

4. Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin

Once Upon a Time's Charming and Snow, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are another on-screen couple who've hooked up behind the camera. And by hooking up we mean these two have decided they're in it for the long haul. They're married AND they have a baby, Oliver Finley.

5. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis

Mila kunis and ashton kutcher married already
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher didn't date while they were playing on-screen couple Kelso and Jackie on That 70s Show, and maybe that's why they're one of the most adorable couples in Hollywood right now. They grew as people and then found their way back to one another after he ditched Demi (or maybe he ditched Demi FOR Mila...)

6. Will Arnett and Amy Poehler

Will arnett and amy poehler
Will Arnett and Amy Poehler weren't really together on Parks and Rec so much as they had a really uncomfortable, really awkward blind date complete with unnecessary medical procedures and rampant sexual innuendo. It's no surprise that Leslie Knope said NOPE to Chris.

11 Stars Who Went from Rags to Crazy Riches

You've heard of a rags-to-riches story, right?

How about multiple stories of those who were born with very little, but who then used their drive, their talents and, yes, their good looks to make like Scrooge McDuck.

These celebrities may not be swimming through a room of actual gold. But they are no longer struggling to make ends meet, either.

1. Justin Bieber

Up close with justin bieber
Justin Bieber was born to a single, teenage mother. If Usher did not find Bieber's impressive videos on YouTube, who knows where he would be right now.

2. Leighton Meester

Leighton Meester starred on a show about very rich young people... but the actress born in a federal prison to her mother Connie, who was serving a 10-year sentence for drug smuggling. The beauty has credited her experience with making her "very non-judgmental and open-minded."

3. Selena Gomez

In an interview with Elle magazine, Selena thought back to how she grew up poor, saying, "I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we’d run out of gas money."

4. Scarlett Johansson

Speaking on her youth, A-lister Scarlett Johansson told The Daily Mail one time: "It's nice to have money. I didn't grow up with it so it's nice to have it."

5. Shia LeBeouf

Shia LeBeouf is weird. He also does not come from money. Here's what the actor once told Parade magazine: "My dad and my mom were both artists who never found an audience for their artwork. And so I lived in poverty. Now that I'm not poor, I know that is what it was. Like Hemingway said, you can’t write anything if you’ve never been shot at or been gorged by a bull, you know? So I look back at that stuff and I’m grateful. It’s like scars. You become proud of them."

6. Nicki Minaj

"I never want to go back to being poor." So Nicki Minaj has said about her childhood. She grew up in Trinidad and then New York.

10 Fictional New York Women We All Aspire To Be

 

What is it about TV shows that raise a flag in our memory? Is a symbol of a time lost or a time found? Whatever the case may be, there are certain television moments and TV characters that have a strong hold over viewers, and for me, there has always been something about the New York woman that has been utterly captivating.

I have fond memories of New York and the female characters that existed within them. The way Betty Suarez entered the sleek Mode offices with beams of optimism and an even brighter ‘Guadalajara’ poncho, and how Serena Van Der Woodsen made her subtle yet grand return to NYC via Grand Central Terminal. The women of New York — Upper East Siders to Brooklynites, fun-loving gals to college nerds — encapsulated many elements that myself and other women admire, helping shape teen and young adult years across the world. Each of these television heroines had the inner spirit of New York within them: naughty but nice, and a standout personality which is a must have to make it in the concrete jungle.

From 2 Broke Girls to Broad City, Gossip Girl to Empire, we acknowledge ten awesome fictional women of New York who loved, lost, and continue to find themselves in possibly the best city in the world, shopping their way across Fifth Ave. and kicking ass in pretty much every other borough.

1. Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)

This list could only begin with the one and only ‘Queen B’ of New York City. You know, the one who walks around with a bow in her hair and a particularly loyal maid called Dorota. Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester, was the teen dream and nightmare after our own hearts, as she brilliantly plotted and schemed her way through six seasons of Gossip Girl. But beyond Blair’s ‘mean girl’ exterior, she had a depth to her that was shaped by many different experiences.

From bulimia, that tumultuous-yet-epic relationship with Chuck Bass, her inferiority complex to Serena (don’t kill me Blair fans) and a well-documented obsession to be the best, all of those traits are relatable. We too have our moments of insecurity and a desire to be great at almost everything. But these qualities were part of Blair’s charm, especially as we watched her blossom over the years into a powerful woman with high standards and a killer wardrobe to boot.

2. Betty Suarez (Ugly Betty)

In the flashy, fast-paced world of fashion, where you must know your turquoise from your cerulean (see: The Devil Wears Prada), Betty Suarez was the opposite of the stereotypical fashion journalist and embodies the saying, “it’s what’s inside that counts.” Her character was a fish out of water — with her thick matted hair, glasses and gridlock braces — but most importantly, Betty had an incredible work ethic that eventually led her to a dream job in London. Ugly Betty broke boundaries, shattered fashion stereotypes, and for that, Betty’s journey makes her one of the best fictional women of NY.

This isn’t gossip: Leighton Meester really is pregnant!

The singer and former Gossip Girl actress debuted her baby belly while out for lunch with husband Adam Brody in Los Angeles on Saturday.

It’s no surprise the private couple have yet to confirm they are expecting their first child. After tying the knot in early 2014, Meester, 29, and the former The O.C. star, 35, never commented on their secret nuptials.

But the mom-to-be did hint that a family was in her near future during an interview with Nylon in November.

“Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next,” she told the magazine. “I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs.”

Meester, who made her Broadway debut in Of Mice and Men last summer, and Brody, who currently stars on Billy and Billie, met on the set in 2011 of The Oranges, then costarred together again in 2014’s Life Partners. Meester released her debut album, Heartstrings, last October.

POPSUGAR was first to report the news.
