GOSSIP GIRL star Leighton Meester is serious about her romance with actor SEBASTIAN STAN – the couple is reportedly set to move in together. Meester, 23, has been dating Stan since he appeared on her hit TV show last year (08). Rumours surfaced in June (09) alleging the couple was engaged, but neither star has commented on reports they are to wed.

However, the relationship is going so well, they are preparing to start hunting for an apartment together in New York, where the programme is filmed. A source tells the New York Post’s gossip column PageSix, “They are really in love. They plan on moving in together soon.”
