Mulder and a very pregnant Scully reunite on the red carpet at The X Files film premiere

Their will they, won't they romance kept viewers guessing for years.

And as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reunited on the red carpet at the London premiere of The X Files: I Want To Believe, the two actors looked very close.

But there were some slight differences between the famous pairing - namely Gillian's bulging baby bump.

The pregnant actress, 39, is due to give birth to her third child later this year with partner businessman Mark Griffiths.

Created and executive produced by Chris Carter, the X-Files, which began in 1993, chronicles the lives and adventures of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, two dissimilar FBI agents assigned to investigate unsolved cases within the Bureau - cases which often involve the paranormal, the supernatural and the inexplicable.

The film also stars Billy Connolly, Amanda Peet and Xzibit.

It promises to take the complicated relationship between Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) in "unexpected directions".

The film is being released in the UK and Ireland on Friday.

Among the stars on the red carpet were Death Proof actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Tudors actress Natalie Dormer and McFly stars Harry Judd and Tom Fletcher.
