Leighton Meester wants children with Adam Brody

LEIGHTON Meester would like to have children with Adam Brody.  

The 'Gossip Girl' star - who married the 34-year-old actor earlier this year - has revealed she wants to follow in the footsteps of pregnant co-star Blake Lively.  

She told Nylon magazine: "Most people I know are starting to get married.  

"It'll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I've got dogs."  

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old - who starred as Blair Waldorf in 'Gossip Girl' - believes the drama series gave her a big break.

She said: "I started the show when I was so young, and once it was over, I wanted to do things that were exciting and challenging and more me - more my adult taste.  

"Of course, that's said with nothing but gratitude and love for that experience in that time of my life."  

However, Leighton has revealed that she thinks it's hard to find these more complex female roles.  

She explained: "As far as scripts go, the roles of women standing alone on their own as whole, real, full people are few and far between.  

"So with both of those roles ['Life Partners' and 'Like Sunday, Like Rain' - her most recent parts], what I loved is that neither of them are centred around romantic relationships.  

"They're flawed, real human beings that I could bread down and really enjoy playing. They're like me, in a way."
