David Duchovny and Téa Leoni, married for 14 years, have separated, their reps confirm to PEOPLE.

The actor, 50, and actress, 45, separated in 2008 for several months, the same year that the Californication star entered a rehabilitation center to be treated for sex addiction. But they reunited and soon seemed closer than ever.

The couple first met early in their careers when they were both interviewing for the same guest spot on the Tonight Show. They married in 1997.

Téa Leoni is looking forward to belting out holidays tunes with her extended family this Christmas, but says there's one person who will not be encouraged to sing along: husband David Duchovny.

"I'm really excited honestly for this Christmas because all of us crazy Pantaleonis are getting together," she told PEOPLE at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball Tuesday. (Leoni's grandmother, Helenka Adamowska, founded the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.) "All together there's something like 40 of us and there's a lot of singing."

"I have a lot of musical cousins," she says. "David will not be singing. We just encourage David to clap along."

David Duchovny and Téa Leoni looked like the picture perfect family on June 14 as they frolicked on the Malibu beach with their two kids, smiling and playing in the water.

The couple has shown a united front – and no discord – since they announced their separation last fall after Duchovny voluntarily entered rehab for sex addiction. Sources tell PEOPLE the couple remains close for the sake of their children Madeline, 10, and Kyd, 7.

"Their relationship has really improved," says a pal of Duchnovny, who stars in the Showtime series Californication. "They're still in love. They very much care for each other and whatever happens they are working it out for the kids."

Lucy Liu has received a special 40th birthday present: a Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award from UNICEF.

"I feel overwhelmed and incredibly happy," the Dirty Sexy Money star said at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York Wednesday night, where guests included Téa Leoni, first daughter Barbara Bush, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Liu's birthday was actually Tuesday, but that didn't stop the many guests at the event from wishing her well.

She also got a special birthday tribute from Oscar-nominated songwriter Jon McLaughlin, who sang "Happy Birthday" to her before performing his single "Beating My Heart."

The actress lost her voice before the event, but still participated in the evening's auction. She donated $10,000 for a raft to carry supplies over water.

The U.K. Daily Mail is apologizing for what it now calls an "inaccurate" article about a relationship between David Duchovny and a tennis coach.

"On October 19, an article about actor David Duchovny may have suggested he had an amorous relationship with a tennis coach, Edit Pakay," the paper says. "We now accept this is inaccurate and Ms. Pakay and Mr. Duchovny are only friends who used to play tennis occasionally. Their relationship went no further and was not a factor in Mr. and Mrs. Duchovny's separation. We apologize to Ms. Pakay, Mr. Duchovny and to Mr. Duchovny's family."
