Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has announced he and his wife of 15 years have reconciled.
The 50-year-old actor, who played Dr Derek "McDreamy" Sheperd for five seasons, split with makeup artist Jillian in 2015 and the pair have officially called off their split.
When asked by the Evening Standard’s ES Magazine whether or not they had patched things up, he said: "Yeah, I think so. You have to work at everything. And you cannot do everything. Something has to be sacrificed."
The couple has three children together Tallulah Fyfe (14) and twins Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen, (9).
Rumours of a reconciliation began swirling in November when they were pictured on holiday together in St Barts holding hands and kissing on a yacht. They were also pictured in Paris together in February.
"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," a source told PEOPLE magazine earlier this year.
It's the second marriage for the hunky star, who was married to fellow actor and acting coach Rochelle "Rocky" Parker from 1987 until 1994.
Patrick has previously spoken about how happy Jillian made him.
“The best part about being married is feeling centered. Nothing else matters so much as long as you can come home and be with your family,” he said.
