As if being handsome and talented weren't enough, Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) is a great person, too. Not only does he make big heroic changes to the world, but he's also a considerate friend.

Patrick and Grey's creator, showrunner, and general mastermind Shonda Rhimes share the same birthday, January 13, which was this past Sunday. And guess what? Patrick didn't forget to wish his birthday buddy well!

"Reason #587,000 I love my job," Shonda tweeted recently. "@PatrickDempsey sends me gorgeous bouquets of flowers and calls me Birthday Twin. #bragging"

All we can saw is aww.
