Last year was a rough one for Patrick Dempsey fans. First, viewers had to bid the saddest of goodbyes Dr. McDreamy on Grey's Anatomy. And then, even more heartbreaking, Dempsey's wife Jillian Fink filed for divorce after three kids and an impressive 15 years of marriage. Call us crazy, but we were rooting for the reunion of these two even more than we were for Grey's Anatomy's Mer and Der when they broke up the first time (and the second, and the third...). And apparently, our reconciliation wish has been granted! Dempsey just gave us a major relationship status update, and it has us seriously smiling.
Reunion rumors between Dempsey and Fink first started swirling when the former Grey's Anatomy actor was spotted out and about with his wedding ring still safely around his finger. Then, around the time when Dempsey was shooting Bridget Jones' Baby in the U.K., he was seen holding hands with his almost-ex-wife in Paris. And back in February, the twosome was spotted engaged in some pretty serious PDA while aboard a yacht in St. Barts on a family vacation. It certainly didn't look like they were calling it quits to us, but now it's certain: The pair are officially back together!
In a legal document snagged by Entertainment Tonight, the judge presiding over their case declared that if Fink does not move forward with their divorce filings, he would dismiss the case. Dempsey later confirmed the reunion news to ES Magazine when asked if he and his wife are back together. "Yeah, I think so," the actor replied.
But, like any marriage, Dempsey admitted that his is taking some work. "You have to work at everything," he explained. "And you cannot do everything. Something has to be sacrificed."
Well, whatever sacrifices were made, we're happy they made them. Here's to another 15 years!
