May 06, 1997...
A representative of David Duchovny has confirmed that the X-Files star married Naked Truth actress Tea Leoni Tuesday night in New York. The rep related the following: "Tea Leoni and David Duchovny were married at Grace Church in Manhattan on the night of May 6, 1997. The ceremony was followed by a small dinner at a French bistro in Hell's Kitchen."
Duchovny's mother is in charge of the Grace Church's lower school, which the actor attended as a child. According to some reports, Duchovny's actor friend Jason Beghe (Monkey Shines) served as best man for the ceremony. The wedding ends a week of speculation that the television stars were preparing to take the plunge. This is Duchovny's first marriage, Leoni's second. The couple had been dating for about six months, which, in celebrity time, is actually about five years. And yes, that sound you hear is the collective heart of the "David Duchovny Estrogen Brigade" breaking.
Happy 11th Wedding Anniversary!
