"The divorce made Patrick miserable. It was definitely a wake-up call. There are no more divorce plans. Patrick and Jillian plan on being a family again."

Patrick and Jillian are parents to daughter Tallula (13) and twin sons Sullivan and Darby (8).

Before tying the knot with Jillian, Patrick was married to fellow actor and acting coach Rochelle "Rocky" Parker from 1987 until 1994.

However Patrick has previously spoken about how happy Jillian made him.

“The best part about being married is feeling centered," he said. "Nothing else matters so much as long as you can come home and be with your family."
