Adam Brody first captured our attention when he starred as the absolutely adorable Seth Cohen in The O.C., the hit TV series back in the early 2000s. The right mix of geeky, sweet and funny, Seth was the definition of the ideal boyfriend for many young ladies.
Fast forward more than a decade and Adam has clearly grown up, and these days, he’s been playing a more important role — that of a father to one-year-old daughter Arlo Day. Adam, who had Arlo with wife Leighton Meester (she played Blair Waldorf in the show Gossip Girl), recently revealed in an interview with People magazine that he goes for morning hikes with his little girl. “Watching the sunrise with a kid is pretty fun,” he said.
Can everyone say awww right now? And really, is there any surprise that he’s our dad crush of the week? Let’s find out more about him.
Adam and Leighton are highly private and tend to stay out of the spotlight. The pair got married in secret in 2014, and even managed to prevent the news of Arlo’s birth from reaching the media for almost two months! A feat in this day and age.
Your chances of seeing the pair on the red carpet are few and far between, but when they do make an appearance, they always manage to stun the crowd.
Adam Brody’s career is also well on track. He has been cast as the lead in the new series StartUp, where he plays the main character Nick Talman.
Whether on or off duty, Adam never fails to remind us of his heart-throb status.
Did we mention that he looks great on magazine covers as well? This was shot two years ago for GQ Korea and it looks like he has barely aged since his O.C. days.
Indeed, Adam Brody seems to have it all: good looks, a gorgeous family, and a successful series underway. We look forward to seeing more of him in the long run.
