Los Angeles - Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are expecting their first child together.

The Gossip Girl actress is reportedly pregnant with her and her husband's first child after being spotted showing off her growing baby bump while out and about on the weekend.

According to the website, the brunette beauty and The O.C. actor were enjoying a lunch date in Los Angeles when her bump could be clearly seen through her tight fitting T-shirt.

The couple tied the knot in a secret ceremony in January 2014 after first meeting on the set of their 2011 film The Oranges.

A source said at the time: "Leighton and Adam got married in Northern California by the ocean a couple of weeks ago. It was a very small and intimate wedding with close family and friends. It was beautiful."

The 29-year-old star first hinted she and her 35-year-old beau were trying for a baby during a recent magazine interview.

She said: "Most people I know are starting to get married. It'll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I've got dogs.

"I started Gossip Girl when I was so young. And once it was over, I wanted to do things that were exciting and challenging and more me - more my adult taste."

Meanwhile, Adam previously joked he is hoping to have a very big family with Leighton.

Asked how many children they were planning on having, he said: "I say twelve. And I decide."
