Leighton Meester @ Entourage Season 5 Premiere

Leighton Meester’s jail birth

‘Gossip Girl’ star Leighton Meester’s mother was in prison when she was born.

The brunette beauty – who plays ‘Park Lane princess’ Blair Waldorf in the hit US TV show – was welcomed into the world while her mother was serving a federal prison sentence in Texas, according to America’s Star magazine.

Leighton’s mother, who gave birth to the actress in April 1986, was permitted to stay in a halfway house for the labour and birth.

She was then forced to return to prison to complete her sentence for her role in a major drug-running ring on the same day Leighton turned three months old.

Leighton was raised by a relative while her mother finished her sentence.

The 22-year-old actress’ father, grandfather and aunt have also reportedly spent time behind bars on charges of drug dealing. [NZ City]
