For fans of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, seeing that perfect moment that their OTP is photographed together is still fleeting. However, our sources tell us that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are still very happy together, and are planning to spend the holidays with each other. In other words, they will spend a Hanukkah and Christmas romance in each other’s arms and try to stay out of the spotlight while doing so.
Due to their complicated relationship histories – with other significant exes and each other – David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have been very careful going about their relationship. They’ve been exceedingly careful never to flaunt any PDA, except for X-Files related events at Comic-Con or similar settings. Anyone who’s very close to them can see the telltale signs of affection, and it IS obvious that there’s something happening there. However, they never kiss in public, nor do they act like a couple, as much as they can help it. Again, perceptive fans have been able to notice small changes in their behavior, particularly around each other, but by and large they’re staying discreet.
Of course, there are people that claim to have spotted them together at David’s apartment in NYC, or holding hands while shopping in Manhattan. Again, there is no picture evidence of any of this, so we really can’t say whether it’s happening or not – just that we’re hearing that it is happening.
Plus, spending the holidays together is a sign of serious commitment, and I would expect nothing else from a couple that has literally been decades in the making. Fans have waited a long time for this, so imagine how much longer the chemistry and the tension had been building between these two? One only has to watch the later seasons of X-Files to see it, and sometimes, the on-screen chemistry doesn’t lie.
