Former X-Files co-stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are definitely, totally, 100 percent shacking up and in a relationship.

The evidence: a mysterious source and Anderson's reluctance to discuss her personal life with The Sunday Times Magazine.

Nerds everywhere are overjoyed at the "news," whether or not it's even a little bit based in fact. Are Mulder and Scully really doing it? That seems beside the point. Many people believe in alien abductions with even less evidence, and that's a much less likely scenario.

Even if untrue, these rumores aren't really hurting anyone. Both Anderson and Duchovny split up from their longtime partners — Anderson broke up with boyfriend Mark Griffiths recently, and Celeb Dirty Laundry claims Duchovny and Tea Leoni have been "quietly divorced" for the past three years.

Besides, geeks need to believe that true love really exists between popular genre pairings. After the heartbreak of Bella and Edward's split, a Mulder and Scully hook-up could be just the thing to heal the nation.
