Patrick Dempsey may have been killed off Grey’s Anatomy last year, but the actor’s marriage remains very much alive.
One year after Dempsey and Jillian Fink released a statement that confirmed they were filing for divorce, the couple has had a literal change of heart.
They are going to give their marriage another shot.
On January 23, 2015, Fink cited “irreconcilable differences” in her official divorce documents and starting the process in which she sought child and spousal support from the handsome actor.
There had even been talk that Dempsey cheated on Fink and that this act of betrayal contributed to his firing from Grey’s Anatomy.
But Dempsey and Fink were spotted holding hands in Paris several weeks ago, prior to attending the Image Maker Awards in West Hollywood on January 12.
They even posed for a photo together at the event, sparking reconciliation rumors.
Just last week, Fink (a successful hair and makeup stylist) wished Dempsey a happy birthday on Instagram, writing to her not-so-estranged husband of over 16 years:
“Happy 5 ‘0’!!! @patrickdempsey xxx.”
Fink married Dempsey in July of 1999 and they have three kids together.
It’s unclear at the moment just what brought the couple back together, but you have seen Patrick Dempsey when you watch Grey’s Anatomy online or on television, right?
Case pretty much closed, we say. Just look at that hair!
