Patrick Dempsey Talks Fatherhood

by at . Comments
Formal McDreamyThe world of Grey's Anatomy continues to turn in peculiar ways, but Patrick Dempsey is too busy to worry about drama at Seattle Grace.

Between shooting his upcoming film, Made of Honor, and adjusting to life with newborn twins (and his 5-year-old daughter, Talula) at home, this Grey's Anatomy leading man barely has time to change a diaper!

In an interview scheduled to air this evening on Entertainment Tonight, the man we know as McDreamy talks about his hectic family life.

Excerpts from the interview...

On the twins, Darby Galen and Sullivan Patrick:
"They change. I leave in the morning and come back in the evening and they've grown. They're starting to talk and now there's some reaction there. They use their faces and hold their heads up a bit."

On raising his three children:
"The first year is really hard. Come to think of it, the first 18 years are extremely difficult."

On whether he'd let his kids get into show business:
"I think with your kids, whatever their passion is, you give your support. You give them the opportunity to try what they want to try."

On his wedding to Jillian Dempsey:

"It was fun. It was just 30 people back in Maine. We had a great time. We put it together in a week and a half or two weeks, it was really fast... The photographers got really drunk and gave us one picture from the whole experience. But we gave everyone those instamatic cameras, and those were some of the best shots."

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.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
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.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
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.
Richard: Acceptance.
