Dr McDreamy is staying married - Patrick Dempsey calls off divorce

Updated: 

Dr McDreamy Patrick Dempsey is officially still taken, as he and his wife have called off their divorce.

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick has been married to Jillian for 17 years and despite her filing for divorce in January 2015 citing irreconcilable differences, she has now asked to have the papers dismissed.

According to Us Weekly, a Los Angeles judge granted the request this week, leaving the couple happily married once more.

Patrick and Jillian, who have three children together - Tallula, 14, and nine-year-old twins Sullivan and Darby - reconciled later in 2015 and were seen enjoying each other's company in Paris.

After confirming he and his wife were trying again, Patrick told ES magazine: "You have to work at everything. And you cannot do everything. Something has to be sacrificed."

Now, the split is officially over, leaving the actor still a married man.
