It’s like The O.C. reunion movie that fans have always dreamed about — except it’s happening in real life. Fans of Fox’s teen soap freaked out on Twitter on Thursday, Sep. 24, over the news that Ben McKenzie is going to be a dad, just over a month after his former costar Adam Brody welcomed a baby!
Brody, 35, who played Seth Cohen, and wife Leighton Meester, 29, recently welcomed their first child, Us Weekly exclusively confirmed. The couple, who have been married for more than a year, named their baby girl, who was born on Aug. 4, Arlo Day.
Just hours after their news broke, word came that McKenzie, 37, who played Ryan Atwood, is expecting a baby with his Gotham costar Morena Baccarin. It’s their first child together, but Baccarin, 36, has a 23-month-old son, Julius, with her estranged husband, Austin Chick, who filed for divorce from the actress in June.
“Seth and Ryan baby news on the same day?” one commenter wrote on Twitter. “The only way this could be better would be if they were having babies with each other.”
