Patrick Dempsey & Jillian Dempsey
Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian, welcomed twin boys on Thursday, People magazine has confirmed.

The twins, who were named Darby Galen and Sullivan Patrick, were born in Los Angeles and join the Dempseys' four-year-old daughter, Tallulah, in the growing household.

Dempsey, 41, who has won the hearts of millions as Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy, announced the pregnancy in September on Live with Regis and Kelly. Since then, he's talked at length about how he puts family first and keeps priorities in line.

In January, he posed for Life with his head resting on Jillian's pregnant belly, reflecting on fatherhood and how it's changed him.

"Now, making money is about providing for my children," he said. "And being a father makes you look at yourself. You look at your marriage and go, 'How do I improve this? How do I keep growing and create a stable environment for my children?'"

Patrick met Jillian - a celebrity stylist who now has her own high-end cosmetics line - in 1994 when he came into her salon for a haircut. They married in 1999 at the Dempsey family farmhouse in Maine.

Congratulations to the happy family!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
