Patrick Dempsey on Reconciliation with Wife Jillian: ‘It’s Been Work for Both of Us'
Last night, actor Patrick Dempsey was candid about his marriage while stepping out for the premiere of his new film “Bridget Jones's Baby.”
Dempsey recently reconciled with his wife, makeup artist to the stars Jillian, after announcing their split in January last year. Patrick told “Extra's” Renee Bargh, "It's been work for both of us. There's deep love there for each other. We want the best for each other. We need to grow, and everything is about change and growing. The most important thing in my life is my family — my kids and my wife — and that relationship.”
His family joined him at the London premiere of the movie last week, but were not able to make it on Monday night. He explained, "Everyone has school, they had the big event in London… My daughter watched the movie with me. She liked it.”
Aside from being happy in his personal life, Dempsey was glad to be a part of “The Bridget Jones family,” even sparking a bromance with co-star Colin Firth. He joked, “We can have our own show. That would be great!”
