Many girls would love to have Derek Shepherd (McDreamy) as their Valentine.
However, the actor behind Grey’s Anatomy’s hottest doc, Patrick Dempsey, only has eyes for one. “Anytime the wind blows, it reminds me of her,” Patrick recalls to Reader’s Digest about the wood chimes wife Jillian Dempsey gave him.
The dad of three, gearing up for his soon-to-be-released film Valentine’s Day (in theaters February 12), opens up about his first kiss, what he loves in a woman, and his thoughts on some of the fanfare surrounding the Valentine’s Day holiday.
“I’ve never really believed in Valentine’s Day,” Patrick Dempsey, 44, admits. “You’re anxious about buying the right gift, but it’s really about your heart. The best Valentine’s Days are magical and spontaneous and just sort of unfold on their own.”
Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey is all heart.
“A sense of humor, strength, and oh God, understanding,” are the three main things Patrick loves in a woman. And it's clear that only one woman has his heart.
Patrick and Jillian, have a daughter, Talula, 7, and 2-year-old sons Darby and Sullivan.
As for McDreamy’s first kiss? “My first kiss was behind the backstop of a baseball field.”
“I was in fifth or sixth grade and very nervous, intimidated, and unsure.”
