Are David Duchovny and Tea Leoni planning another child?

David Duchovny, Tea Leoni

One of Hollywood’s coolest couples has been having a rough time, but if new reports are to be believed, they could be on the mend. “X-Files” star David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni, who seemed rock-solid after more than 10 years together, were separated last year after reports that David had checked into rehab for sex addiction. There were also rumors that Tea was seeking comfort in the arms of her co-star, Billy Bob Thornton. It was a sad situation, especially for the couple’s two children. But recently, David and Tea have been spotted out together, holding hands and seeming very close again. And now, The National Enquirer is reporting that not only have the couple reunited, but they’re planning to have another baby.

“Can you say bundle of joy for David Duchovny and Tea Leoni?” say pals.

The separated couple, who’ve been married for more than a decade, recently reconciled during a spring break getaway to the Caribbean island of Mustique with their two children.

David and Tea have been working on fixing their broken relationship for some time, a source revealed. But with David’s history of sex addiction, there were trust issues they had to resolve.

“Little by little they’ve managed to work through them,” continued the source. “And the fact they still see each other often in New York City helped.”

David and Tea have maintained separate apartments close to each other in Manhattan, where they split time with their kids, Madelaine, who turns 10 this month, and Kyd, 6.

“There were still a lot of feelings between Tea and David,” said the source. “They never actually filed for formal separation – I don’t think they ever wanted the marriage to end.

“It just took a romantic holiday with their kids to finally bring them to their senses.”

David knows that Tea has always wanted another child. And now that she’s 43, David, 48, knows there’s no time to waste.

“To win her back, he played his trump card,” said the source. “He promised if she were not pregnant in a year they would look into adoption.”

Tea took David back “on probation” last fall, says the source, but wasn’t convinced they’d be able to get past their problems.

“Tea wanted proof that David’s number one priority is family,” added the source. “And with him committing to expanding the brood, Tea feels like she can trust him again.”

I have always liked this couple – they seem so cool and sexy. I was so bummed when I heard they were breaking up. But I have seen the recent photos of them hanging out, and they really do look like they’re still in love. I don’t know about the baby thing, but I sure hope they can make it work. Having a baby to save a relationship is never a good idea. Make sure the marriage is solid again first!

    If they can save their marraige, that’s wonderful.
    I doubt it’s anywhere near as simple as “tak(ing) a romantic holiday with thier kids to bring them to their senses”. That quote alone tells me this story is complete bs.
    Considering the problems and trust issues they would have to deal with, I think they are wisely taking a lot of time.
    I hope they would not be foolish enough to bring a baby into such a fragile situation. I have no idea why some people imagine a baby could be a “problem solver”. As joyous as it is to have a child, it is also a lot of stress and work and I have seen couples who have very solid marriages struggle under the impact of a newborn.
    Babies aren’t band-aids. They should be a celebration of love, not a desperate attempt to “fix” it.

    Not a good time to throw another child in the mix. Why do some people think having another kid is going to make all of the bad go away? Ugh.

    It’s not like I’m not rooting for them, but I think they need more time to mend. They should also focus on the children they already have, who undoubtedly have already suffered through this crap.

    As I say to my grown-up and married daughters, babies are NOT relationship caulk.

    I love her. I think she has ridiculous talent and has yet to really show it off onscreen. But I always read that DD didn’t want kids to being with (I’m sure he loves his and all..) so why would he be suddenly pushing for more? Sounds like a swiss cheese story to me. But whatever, if they can work it out, good for them!

    I think she should have that baby with ME, actually…

    and she IS great. She deserves to be in that $20-million-a-movie club.

  6. Addiction in any form not only affect the victim but the entire family and loved one’s as well. What can we do to defend our family from falling into disastrous this trap?
