It wasn't long ago that Gossip Girl premiered on the CW and quickly became the hottest show on TV, buoyed by some of the hottest young celebrities around.

Well, we suppose 2007 is sort of a long time ago. But it feels like it was yesterday!

Upon hearing the exciting news that Ryan Reynolds got Blake Lively pregnant, we got to thinking about what the her former co-stars are up to these days.

The answer, at least in some cases? More than you might think. In other cases ...

Blake Lively
Blake Lively, after closing the book on Serena van der Woodsen, married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds and is now pregnant with their first child. Since Gossip Girl wrapped, she moved on to film projects as an actress, and has kept a pretty low-profile, which doesn't always mesh with her fashion icon status and being named one of TIME‘s 100 Most Influential People. She also launched a new lifetyle website, Preserve, on which she revealed her pregnancy.

Their careers may have peaked on the Upper East Side in the late 2000s.

We're not trying to be harsh, but where has Chace Crawford been? Ed Westwick? For a time, the BFFs were the "it" guys of teenybopper TV. Nowadays?

You'll have to click through the gallery above to find out the answer.

Some cast members would likely prefer you not watch Gossip Girl online marathons so as to appreciate some of their more recent, and refined, work.

The dating scene is tough to break into when your job demands wonky hours and call times at 2 a.m. Maybe that's why so many TV stars date their coworkers.

Hey, it's not like they don't have anything in common, right? 

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
The running joke during That 70s Show was that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis should date in real life. Now they're engaged with a baby on the way.

But things get a little weird when a real life couple doubles as a on-screen couple. To insanely dedicated fandoms, it's hard to tell where art is imitating life and vice versa.

At least for those 'shippers who border on a little too dedicated (you know who you are, The Vampire Diaries fans ... don't even try to look the other way)!

Take a look above at 21 famous couples on TV and in life and make note of which ones you knew of, which you didn't, and which stood the test of time.

While some of these real life relationships were as short as the seasons in which the on-camera romances took place, others were slightly more successful.

Are Gossip Girl co-stars, childhood friends and former lovebirds Blake Lively and Penn Badgely back together after their unexpected breakup?

The adorable pair split last year after three years together, but it seems as though working closely together has rekindled this old flame.

According to celebrity gossip stalwart Perez Hilton, the gorgeous former couple were spotted “holding hands” at Coachella last weekend.

Blake has been linked to Ryan Gosling since splitting with Penn, but there was nothing serious about those rumors. So we'll see ...

It's unclear if Dan and Serena will also get back together on Gossip Girl.

Gossip Girl stars Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have ended their three-year romance, a rep for the twosome exclusively tells the new issue of Us. OMFG!

They called it quits in mid-September, amicably. "They’re professionals," an insider says of the pair. "They're still good friends and hang out on the set."

The duo, who met as preteen actors in L.A., then began dating as their characters were dating on Gossip Girl, "kept this news to themselves for a while."

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley have broken up after almost three years.

Indeed, they have always taken a drama-free approach to their relationship, and that includes the breakup aspect of it. They just go about their business.

Even those closest to the twosome may be shocked to hear the news. "Nobody on set had any idea," says the insider. "They're really just private."

We're sorry to hear about this breakup news, although it does put a new spin on Blake's rumored hookup with Ryan Gosling earlier this month.

Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, whose characters used to date on the hit CW show, have been dating more than a year and a half.

According to reports, they are looking to extend that ... forever!

A close pal of Blake's repors that it is just a matter of time. The couple are expected to announce their engagement sooner rather than later.

Sunday is Badgley's 23rd birthday, and while some speculate they might have something else to celebrate then, others say talk is premature.

Just a little, though.

''I think if November 1 was Blake's birthday, he might have surprised her with a ring,'' quipped the source. ''But my guess is over the holidays.''

No question, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively are a cute couple, and one that likes to keep a low profile as well. They would have our blessing.

Penn and Blake. Dan and Serena. They're hot by any name!

Blake Lively Quotes

I once heard someone say that I'm similar to Paris Hilton, since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we're alike.... I don't go to clubs, I don't party, I don't dance on tables, and I don't like sex tapes.

Blake Lively

At the end of the day, I want to go to dinner and watch a movie. I don't want to go to a club and not wear panties.
