Much like his Grey's character Derek Shepherd, Patrick Dempsey has been divorced and remarried. In 1987, he wed his manager (who also happened to be his best friend Corey Parker's mother), Rochelle "Rocky" Parker. Their married fizzled after 7 years... probably because she was a whopping 26 years his senior. Finally happily coupled, Derek and Meredith scrub in for surgery together regularly on Grey's — but according to an interview with People, Jillian Fink Dempsey was doing the cutting when she met her future husband. Now a creative color director for Avon, Jillian first interacted with Patrick as his hair stylist. After 11 years of marriage and three children, their relationship appears to be as steady as a heartbeat.
