On screen Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester endured a six-year roller coaster relationship on the hit CW show Gossip Girls as Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass.
But in real life Westwick formally congratulated his former on-screen flame’s real life engagement through a text message.
Together, the duo portrayed a match made in television heaven as the on-again, off-again couple Chuck (Westwick) and Blair (Meester), the villains fans loved to hate.
And while their romance never simmered off screen, Meester ended up coupling up with actor Adam Brody of The O.C when they met on the set of the 2011 film, The Oranges.
The couple became engaged in November 2013 and were officiated in a secret, private ceremony in February, sources revealed to Us Magazine.
Fans of the Chuck and Blair courtship needn’t worry, as Westwick revealed he holds nothing but the best intentions for his former co-star, the publication reported.
‘It’s not my life. I love her. I think she’s fantastic, and she’s a good friend of mine. And whatever she does I wish her all the best,’ the Gossip Girl alum shared with Us.
Both actors were romantically linked to fellow Gossip Girls cast mates at some time or another during the course of the series run.
Meester was at one point romantically linked to cast mate Sebastian Stan, while Westwick was on-again, off-again with co-star Jessica Szohr.
MSN Wonderwall confirmed both Meester and Brody were engaged after less than a year of dating, and celebrated the proposal with family at an engagement party in November.
This is the first marriage for both Meester and Brody.
Westwick is currently filming Kitchen Sink, a horror comedy that follows three teenagers who are tasked with ending a zombie vs. humans warfare.
Meester will be making her Broadway debut alongside James Franco and Chris O’Dowd in the stage version of the novel Of Mice And Men on April 16 in New York City.
