I was a bit late to the party when it came to "The O.C." but I got there.
And it didn't take me long to realize that Seth Cohen is literally the best.
He was awkward, he was dreamy, he had quirks... Seth was basically the manic pixie dream girl, had she been a boy -- in other words, perfection.
But, as 20-somethings cast in a high school teen drama are wont to do, Adam Brody (Seth Cohen in our eyes, always) has grown up.
We let you go, Adam. Fly now. You filled our pre-teen hearts with so much joy we only wish you the same.
Recently, Brody appeared with his daughter. Now 36, he was all smiles as he left a library with little Arlo.
Arlo seems to be ready for fall in those adorable flower-patterned leggings! But we just can't get over how happy Brody looks to be holding his bundle of joy!
It seems like they were on the way home from their library visit, as Brody fished for his keys while holding his sunglasses in his mouth.
Brody and Leighton Meester of "Gossip Girl" welcomed Arlo, their first child, to the world in August of 2015, 18 months after they were married.
Adorably, Brody told People magazine that he's coping with having an "early riser" of a child, saying,
It's something to do in the wee hours of the morning when she's up. It's a good activity for both of us. Watching the sunrise with a kid is pretty fun.
The new dad can be spotted in a movie based on "ChiPs" with Dax Shepherd and Michael Pena next year, but for now you can catch him on the Crackle series "StartUp."
