Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are one of the most secretive star couples on the block. So when the duo made their first appearance since their wedding day at the Tony Awards this week we could help but let out a squeal of excitement.

Adam and Leighton - or should we say Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf - have been officially dating since 2013 after meeting on the set of movie The Oranges back in 2011. 

Since then they've been spotted out in New York walking their adorable pooches together but rarely hit the red carpet arm in arm. It seems it's all change this year though - not only did they hit up the Tony Awards looking all loved-up they're also starring in a movie Life Partners together.

'I always want to work with people that I like and love and people that I'm friends with,' Leighton says in a press conference. 'It's nice to mix business with pleasure... It was the best. We basically got to say whatever came to our minds. There was a lot of improv.'

The teen drama alums are no strangers to dating co-stars - both have had relationships with on-screen partners in the past. Adam hooked up with The OC's Rachel Bilson aka (Summer Roberts) and Leighton dated Gossip Girl's   Sebastian Stan (aka Carter Baizen).
