Breaking News: Patrick Dempsey is Hot!

by at . Comments

Every Thursday, Patrick Dempsey, 40, sends hearts aflutter as Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy. Playing the role of a romantically conflicted and enormously talented brain surgeon, the actor resuscitated his career and made "McDreamy" part of the pop culture lexicon.

Patrick Dempsey in Us Weekly
"Patrick has always been an incredibly down-to-earth, kind person," Debra Messing, his one-time Will & Grace co-star, tells Us Magazine, which has Dempsey on its cover this week. "He's been around for a long time and has his head on his shoulders. I could not be more thrilled for him." 

Dempsey’s personal life is also booming. He and his wife of seven years, celebrity makeup artist and hairstylist Jillian Dempsey, 40, are expecting twin boys. The newborns will join the couple's daughter, Tallulah, who is four.

"I’m really thrilled," Patrick told Ryan Seacrest on the American Idol host's radio show last week. "My wife looks great, we're excited, my daughter’s happy and we’re going to have a very big family very soon."

Indeed, his marriage is the stuff McDreamy can only, well, dream of.

"I value my relationship even more now. It’s made me successful, and I am very fortunate that I don't lose sight of that," he said.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.

Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.

Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
