40 Real-Life Relationships Of Your Favorite TV Stars
It was Patrick Dempsey as Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd who first taught us how to pine wistfully. We owe a debt of gratitude to Patrick Dempsey for his perfect hair and also for making us briefly consider going to medical school. While Derek and Meredith’s love story on Grey’s Anatomy will always stand out to us as the perfect modern-day love story, Patrick Dempsey’s real-life relationship with his wife is pretty swoon-worthy as well. Patrick married makeup artist Jillian Fink in 1999. The couple has three children together. Jillian filed for divorce in January 2014 amid rumors he had an affair with a Grey’s intern, but the couple got back together later that year and officially called off their divorce in 2016.
