Former "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester is dating former "The O.C." star Adam Brody, according to People magazine.

Thank goodness. Some of us have been rooting for those two kids to get together. No, I really don't have any idea what I just said.

Reps for the actors have not commented. Both actors apparently do a good job of keeping their private lives out of the spotlight.

In 2010, Meester briefly addressed her "really hard" split from her former beau, "Gossip Girl" co-star Sebastian Stan, saying, "I was really sad when it ended, but that's what taught me a lot about myself and love and life -- and that's good."

Brody most famously dated "O.C." costar Rachel Bilson. They split in 2006, and the actor most recently publicly courted screenwriter Lorene Scafaria in 2011.

Meester and Brody reportedly became close after costarring in the film "The Oranges."
