The former Grey's Anatomy star and his wife Jillian Fink reconciled earlier this year (16), and they returned to the public eye as a couple on Monday, when they were joined at the London film launch by their three children, daughter Tallula (14) and twin sons Darby and Sullivan (9).

Dempsey stars alongside Renee Zellweger in the latest Bridget Jones sequel as Colin Firth's new love rival, Jack Qwant, as they try to figure out who fathered Bridget Jones' baby.

Leading lady Renee also turned heads on the pink carpet as she showed off her slender figure in a navy blue off-the-shoulder dress, which featured a daring thigh-high split, while Colin, Emma Thompson, and singer Ellie Goulding were among the other guests who also posed for the paparazzi.

The premiere marked the first Dempsey family outing at a big event since Patrick and Jillian worked out their differences.

Make-up artist Jillian moved to end their 15-year marriage by filing court papers in January, 2015, but she had changed her mind about a divorce by the end of the year, and they started attending various events together, including the Marie Claire Awards in January (16).

In February (16), the reunited Dempsey family enjoyed a tropical vacation to St. Barths, and in May (16), the actor confirmed their marriage was back on track, revealing saving their marriage came down to sacrifice.

"You have to work at everything. And you cannot do everything," he told Britain's ES Magazine. "Something has to be sacrificed."
