The rumors are true! After less than a year of dating, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are engaged to be married, multiple sources have now confirmed!

Appropriately, the Gossip Girl actress, 27, and The O.C. actor, 33, are best known for those two breakout television shows created by Josh Schwartz.

It's a match made in teen dramedy heaven!

The resolutely private couple, who were "always close and friendly," have rarely commented on their relationship since it turned romantic in February.

With the exception of a handful of affectionate, low-key appearances together in and around Hollywood, they've kept things to themselves. A good move.

Clearly, it's working out for them!

A new report indicates that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody just got engaged, which is either a tabloid's version of fan fiction or the greatest news ever.

At least if you're a fan of teen dramas that started off so promisingly and then declined precipitously in later seasons, but still hold a place in your heart.

According to Star Magazine, the couple of 10 months is heading to the altar after the former Gossip Girl star accepted The OC star's surprise proposal.

“Leighton and Adam are crazy about each other and have talked about getting married eventually,” an insider says. “But she had no idea he would propose!"

"It was the surprise of her life and she’s absolutely ecstatic!”

Creator Rob Thomas announced that Andrea Estella, the lead singer of the band Twin Sister, will take over the role due to scheduling conflicts.

"Sadly, Leighton was doing a different movie at the same time on the wrong coast," Thomas wrote to his Kickstarter backers. "In the end, she was unavailable."

Estella scored the role because Thomas is a fan of Twin Sister and will be using some of their songs as Carrie Bishop shows off some vocal skills.

Explained Thomas:

Leighton Meester, formerly of Gossip Girl fame, turns 27 today.

Happy birthday to the beautiful actress and musician!

The star, who recently started dating Adam Brody to complete one of our favorite couples, is a perennial candidate for any Most Beautiful People list.

She's also a solid actress, not that you'd know it from the last few seasons of Gossip Girl. Goodness did that show ever decline. Like to a stunning degree.

Anyway, we wish her nothing but the best on this day and every other. Also on Tuesday, it's Hugh Hefner's birthday and Kristen Stewart's birthday!

April 9 rules!

Move over Blake Lively, there's a new set of legs on the Upper East Side.

The gauntlet has been thrown down in that regard. Also, Meester set a very high standard for modeling alongside a couple of naked guys for some reason.

Leighton Meester may be overshadowed in the Gossip Girl universe this week by Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' secret wedding, but she still looks gorgeous (and backless!) on the cover of British Cosmopolitan‘s October 2012 issue.

Excerpts from Leighton's Cosmo interview below ...

Leighton in Cosmopolitan UK

On her style vs. her character Blair Waldorf’s: “I’ve never seen Blair with the same bag, coat or shoes twice. I don’t know anyone who had that."

"I had two pairs of jeans [when I was a teenager] that I rotated. I wouldn’t trust myself with a Prada brag! I didn’t even want to change for gym so I’d wear sweatpants over my jeans, then sweat around the track for an hour.”

On her awkward side: “If I’m not around close friends or family, I can get quiet and awkward, and it probably comes off as not very nice or just plain weird!"

"It’s not meant to. I try to pull myself out of it but sometimes it’s hard for me to open up. In the past it was easier for me to trust people. Nowadays I judge pretty quickly: ‘You just want to be my friend because I’m on a TV show.’”

On makeup: “I don’t care if there are a million photos of me with no makeup. I love being able to walk down the street without it. We should promote women not having to wear makeup, or at least feel we can go out without it.”

Leighton Meester 1, Leighton Meester's slightly insane mom 0.

That's the score after the Gossip Girl star won a judgment against her mom today, officially stating that Leighton does not owe Connie Meester any money. Ever.

Leighton claimed Connie diverted money Leighton had sent to her little brother Lex, who suffers from serious medical problems, and spent it on herself. Frivolously.

Leighton M.

Connie used the $7,500 per month Leighton sent home for Lex on things like plastic surgery, Botox, and hair extensions, resulting in a lawsuit from Leighton.

The elder Meester then sued her, demanding a portion of the star's earnings, claiming Leighton had promised to take care of her and that's why she spent the cash.

But a judge today officially dismissed that claim, ruling there was no such agreement and siding squarely with Leighton (who also appears in That's My Boy).

Leighton actually didn't sue to recover any money from Connie, BT-Dubs, she just wanted a judge to make her mom go away and stop stealing from Lex.

Done and done.
