Adam Brody has confirmed that he has got married to Leighton Meester in a private ceremony.

The former O.C. actor and his Gossip Girl wife were said to have secretly wed by E!, and now Adam has confirmed that the news is true.

According to the Daily Mail, he was seen walking around Los Angeles wearing a wedding ring and when asked if it was "true if he really got married", he replied with a brief "yes".

Leighton wasn't with him as she is currently rehearsing for her stage debut in Of Mice And Men on Broadway with James Franco and Chris O'Dowd.

The couple met in 2011 while filming The Oranges and never officially confirmed that they were a couple or had got engaged, although they were thought to have got together around a year ago with the engagement coming just three months ago.
