Jillian Dempsey, who seems to trade off her married name for her maiden name, Jilian Fink, at will, is a celebrity makeup and hairstylist who met Patrick when he scheduled a quick hair trim.
Patrick and Jillian Only Dated 3 Months
The couple only dated for three months before moving in together and not too much later they were married in Maine at Patrick’s family farmhouse. To be fair, Patrick did keep coming back for haircuts for three years waiting for her to be single.
Fink Styles Mega Celebrities
While Patrick may be more of a household name because of his former role as Derek Shepherd, Jill is a celebrity behind the scenes in Hollywood. She styles many A-listers including Bradley Cooper and Julia Roberts.
Jillian and Patrick Have Twins
The couple’s oldest child is a daughter, but five years later they were blessed with twins. Patrick has described them as stark opposites calling one a grumpy old man and the other a quiet Buddha.
Marriage Troubles Almost Lead To Divorce
In 2015 it was Jillian who filed for divorce after 16 years of marriage. She cited irreconcilable differences and filed for joint custody. At the time the couple said they simply care about the wellbeing of their children.
One Year Later She Dismissed the Divorce Papers
While there was a lot of speculation surrounding the high-profile divorce, Jillian and Patrick found a resolution and she canceled the divorce papers in 2016. While she has remained quiet, Patrick has stated that he realized he needed to work harder at his marriage — and apparently he did.
