Eric Dane Proposed to Rebecca Gayheart After She Dared Him To

Shakira may be daring listeners to kiss her in "Dare (La La La)," but Rebecca Gayheart was even bolder — she dared Grey's Anatomy stud Eric Dane (Mark Sloan) to propose, as he reveals to WENN.

"We were having dinner at a restaurant, and she asked me if I ever did anything impulsive, and I said, 'Like what? Ask someone to marry me?' and she said, 'Yeah, something like that,' and I said, 'Do you want to marry me...?,"

If this were Grey's, that's where the episode would cut to black, but luckily, the 41-year-old doesn't leave us hanging.

"I was terrified, and she said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Check.' We got the check, jumped in my car, we got the last flight out of Los Angeles to Las Vegas. We've been happily married ever since and we have two beautiful little girls."

That marriage took place on October 29, 2004 — and they welcomed Billie Beatrice on March 3, 2010, and Georgia Geraldine on December 28, 2011.

"I honestly think I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be at this moment in time," the Last Ship star recently told People. "And I'm really happy … I never had a family, and now I do. I know I'm a very lucky guy."
