Gossip Girl co-stars Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have broken up, ending their three-year romance, a rep for the twosome confirmed. Simply put ... OMG OMG OMG.

The twosome called it quits in mid-September, on amicable terms. "They’re professionals," an insider says of the pair. "They're still good friends and hang out on set."

The duo, who met as pre-teens in L.A., then began dating as their characters, Dan and Serena, were also dating on Gossip Girl, "kept this to themselves for a while."

Blake and Penn: Just So Cute

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley were together almost three years.

They have always taken a drama-free approach to their relationship, and are trying to make sure that includes the end of it. They just go about their business as friends.

Things have remained so normal that even those closest to them were shocked at the news. "Nobody on set had any idea," says the insider. "They're both really private."

We're surprised, but wish them both the best and are glad it wasn't a scandalous, contentious breakup at least. Here's a look back at some Penn and Blake moments:

[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.
