During the days of The O.C., everyone's imaginary BF was either nerdy Adam Brody or rebellious Benjamin McKenzie.
It just so happens that Leighton Meester was daydreaming about her now-hubby YEARS before they actually met on the set of The Oranges in 2012.
"She says she always had a crush on him. She was so nervous to work with him!"
Um, who WOULDN'T start to quiver around those adorable dimples??!
Then again, it's no wonder Adam didn't fall for her gorgeous looks either.
Have we mentioned that we can't wait for these two to start making pretty babies??!
We guess we'll let them practice a little longer. HA!
