Looks like it's true: Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen are a real-life couple!

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester and OC heartthrob Adam Brody were photographed heading to a local Mexican restaurant in Venice, Calif., on Thursday, where they met another friend.

Bundled in a red hoodie, Brody, 33, adorably slung his arm around his gal pal as they walked together. 

While this new-couple alert has been going off for quite some time now, this is the first time the young actors have paraded any kind of PDA.

The duo were still trying to downplay their status two weeks ago when paparazzi tried to snap a photo of Meester, 26, riding in Brody's car, where she tried to dodge the flashes by ducking behind the seat. 

Well, well—what a change of heart, eh? According to sources at the restaurant in Venice, the couple was smiling and snuggling the entire time out. 

What a match made in teen-TV heaven!
