They seem more in love than ever! Nearly two years after Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian Fink, officially called off their divorce, the couple sweetly returned to the spot where they married to celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary.
“This spot, 19 years ago today!” the 52-year-old actor captioned an Instagram photo of the two sharing a sweet kiss on Tuesday, July 31. Jillian also took to social media to post about the couple’s wedding anniversary. “Gorgeous arrangement! Happy 19th Anniversary @PatrickDempsey,” the makeup artist captioned an Instagram snapshot of a stunning bouquet.
The former Grey’s Anatomy star and Jillian previously tied the knot on July 31, 1999, and are now the proud parents of three children: daughter Talula Fyfe Dempsey, 16, and twin sons Darby Galen Dempsey and Sullivan Patrick Dempsey, both 11.
In January 2015, Patrick and his wife sadly announced their split after 16 years of marriage but, after a brief separation, the pair got back together and called off their divorce for good in November 2016.
“Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of,” Patrick said in a prior interview. “I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That’s where [our reconciliation] started.”
“You can only do one thing at a time and do it well,” he continued. “I [learned] to prioritize. Our union has to be the priority. I wasn’t prepared to give up on her and she wasn’t either. We both wanted to fight for [our marriage].”
“You’ve got to keep at it,” Patrick added. “You’ve got to communicate, and stay open and not get lazy. And not give up. And [have] lots of sex!”
