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

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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."
