We want to believe — that Mulder and Scully are meant to be together in real life, not just on The X-Files.

David Duchovny is still married to Tea Leoni, although they are off and on and appear to be separated right now. And, yeah, he has that whole sex addiction issue. But Gillian Anderson is no longer with her longtime love, her rep told Us Weekly, as she and Mark Griffiths "amicably separated after six years together." They have two children together. Gillian has another child from a previous relationship. She's been married twice before, but she and Griffiths never tied the knot. David and Tea have two children together.

X-Files fans wasted no time, taking to the comments of Us Weekly's story Tuesday night to suggest a Mulder/Scully love reunion.

• "Mulder's available too, so you guys get together!!!"

• "I agree. David is 'seperated' or whatever hollywood calls it these days from his wife and it's his birthday after all! Mulder you make her smulder!"

• "Mr. Duchovny, must you wait and see? C'mmon go grab Gillian!"

What do you think? It's always sad when a longtime relationship ends — especially when there are kids involved — but are your shipper senses tingling? Or do you think it's crazy to hope these two actors get together in real life?
