We've loved Christina Applegate ever since Married … With Children and Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, and now — more than two decades later — our fondness continues to grow.

The 40-year-old Up All Night actress recently appeared on The Tonight Show, where she gushed to Jay Leno that she gets positively "giddy" thinking about Castle and Beckett — her favorite onscreen couple.

"I'm a big Castle fan. It's the best! It's my very favorite show on television," she said, getting visibly excited. "I did have the opportunity to meet Stana Katic at an event, and out of all the people who were there, I was like, she's the one I wanted to talk to."

"I was very calm," the actress continued, "and what came out of my mouth was, 'I really root for you and Castle!'"

Welcome to the club, girl!

Fans were overjoyed at Christina's Caskett confession, tweeting that she'd make an amazing addition to the Castle clan. We couldn't agree more. Just imagine her popping up as the ditzy ex-girlfriend of a victim or — even better yet — Rick Castle!
