Patrick Dempsey Jillian Fink Married For 12 Years, Patrick Dempsey has been married to Jillian Fink since July 31, 1999. They have been married for 12.5 years. Patrick Galen Dempsey (born January 13, 1966) is an American actor, known for his role as neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd (“McDreamy”) on the medical drama Grey’s Anatomy.

Prior to Grey’s Anatomy he made several television appearances and was nominated for an Emmy Award. He has also appeared in several films, including Sweet Home Alabama, Made of Honor, Valentine’s Day, Flypaper, Freedom Writers and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Dempsey was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 12. As a result, it is necessary for him to memorize all his lines in order to perform, even for auditions where he was unlikely to get the part.

Entertainment Weekly put Dempsey’s hair on its end-of-the-decade “best-of” list, saying, “What made Grey’s Anatomy a mega-medi-hit? It could have something to do with creator Shonda Rhimes’ scalpel-sharp writing or McDreamy’s impossibly luxurious man hair. Just saying.” In 2005, People magazine ranked him second in its annual list of “Sexiest Men Alive” and again in 2006.

He has been married twice. In 1987, he married actress and acting coach Rocky Parker (born 26 February 1939 in Brooklyn, New York). She was his best friend’s mother and appeared with Dempsey in the film In the Mood. The couple divorced in 1994.

On July 31, 1999, Dempsey married Jillian Fink. The couple have three children, daughter Tallulah Fyfe (born 20 February 2002) and twins Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen (born 1 February 2007). The family resides in Malibu and also has a home in Texas. They own a farmhouse in Maine as well, but that property is currently for sale.
