Patrick Dempsey told USA Today: “There may be [wedding bells in the future]” on the hit series Grey’s Anatomy. He says his character, Dr. Shepherd (aka Dr. McDreamy), and Dr. Meredith Grey (referred to in the show’s title), may be getting married later on in the season. “Rumor has it something might be happening,” Dempsey hinted. “I think they have to. It’s time for them to get together.” Series creator Shonda Rhimes is in agreement, telling EW.com: “My goal is to get Meredith and Derek together for good, and let them try to figure out what it is to be in a relationship in the future.” Both Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith, are married in real life (although not to each other).
