Nearly two decades, three kids, and a whole lot of memories later, Patrick and Jillian Dempsey are celebrating their 19-year wedding anniversary. On Wednesday, the Grey's Anatomy actor shared a photo on Instagram kissing his beautiful wife in the exact location where they got married. "This spot 19 years ago, today!" he wrote alongside a photo of them standing in front of a gazebo. Jillian also shared a photo of a beautiful flower arrangement wishing her husband a happy anniversary.
The couple have 16-year-old daughter Talula Fyfe and 11-year-old twin sons Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen. While Patrick and Jillian have nothing but love for each other now, the two did have trouble in their marriage back in January 2015, when Jillian filed for divorce from Patrick citing irreconcilable differences. In November of the following year, they called off their divorce and fought to repair their marriage.
"Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of," Patrick told People at the time. "I didn't feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That's where it started . . . Jill and I decided it was time to work on our issues and improve. We wanted to be role models for our kids like, okay, if you have differences, you can work them out."
Now, they're stronger than ever and surrounded with so much love for their 19-year anniversary. Read on to see sweet Instagram photos of Patrick and Jillian through the years.
