Penn Badgley & Blake Lively to Get Engaged ... Soon?

at . Comments

Today's best gossip from the set of Gossip Girl? An update on Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, whose characters, as we know, used to date on the show.

Blake and Penn have dated for a good length of time now (May 2008 was our first report on the couple, who may have been together prior to that).

Is it looking like this could be a (gulp) forever thing?

According to a close pal of Lively's, it very much is. The couple are expected to announce their engagement soon - at least their friends think they are.

There's a lot to love about Blively. Possibly for life!

Sunday is Badgley's 23rd birthday, and while some speculated they might have something else to celebrate then, engagement talk is premature.

A little.

''I think if November 1 was Blake's birthday, he might have surprised her with a ring,'' quipped the source. ''But my guess is over the holidays.''

Hard to believe one of our favorite Gossip Girl couples could be making it official. We certainly wouldn't object! You two kids have our blessing!

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
