Darby Galen Dempsey is one of three kids of the famous American acting couple, Patrick and Jillian Fink.
His father, Patrick, is among the most famous 90s actors of modern times, while his mother, Jillian Fink, is a renowned make-up artist.
It has been more than 20 years (two decades) since Patrick and Jillian have been married. Together, they have three kids.
Some of Patrick Dempsey’s most notable projects are “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Devil,” “Lucky 7,” “Fast Times,” “A Fighting Choice,” “The Escape,” and many others.
Galen has been in the media limelight since the time of his birth. As you all already know, people are always more interested to know about a celebrity’s personal life than their professional one.
The media facilitates them in this regard. And surprisingly, there’s always something spicy about them, be it an affair, a marital issue, or whatnot.
In this article, I, along with all of you, will take a detailed look at the life of this 15-years-old celebrity kid, Darby Galen Dempsey. Let’s begin, shall we?
Who Is Darby Galen Dempsey?
Darby Galen Dempsey is a famous celebrity kid; he was born on the 1st of February 2007 and as of June 2022, he is around 15 years old.
His complete name is also Darby Galen Dempsey. Currently, he doesn’t have a profession, so why would he have a stage name? It’s pretty obvious, no?
There’s also a little detail regarding his birth that we don’t get to see in other celebrity biographies. He was born on a Thursday.
Patrick Dempsey, in total, has three kids. Darby was born alongside his twin brother, Sullivan Patrick Dempsey. Darby also has a sister named Talula Fyfe Dempsey.
According to Patrick, when he learned that his 3-member family was about to become a 5-member family, he found it a little overwhelming, honestly.
Not that he wasn’t ready for this. Darby Galen and Sullivan became permanent members of the Dempsey family on the 1st of February 2007.
A little while after they were born, Patrick, Darby Galen, and Sullivan made it to the People magazine cover.
Darby Galen’s Sister, Talula Fyfe Dempsey
Earlier, I mentioned that Darby Galen also has a sister. It turns out she is about 5 years older than our 15-years-old celebrity kid.
She was born on the 20th of February 2002 in Los Angeles. As of June 2022, she is 20 years old.
It is reported that it was Talula who suggested the names of her twin brothers: Darby Galen and Sullivan Dempsey.
Darby Galen belongs to the Dempsey family; unlike his father, his grandpa was William Dempsey, and he was a salesman.
His grandma was Amanda Dempsey, and she was a local education secretary. At the same time, his maternal grandfather used to work as an administrator in Texas.
Darby has several ethnicities, such as Scottish, German, Native American, Swedish, and some others from his father’s side.
Will There Be More Addition To The Dempsey Family?
Are more cute members on their way to be added to the Dempsey family? Well, no! There isn’t anyone coming whom Darby Galen and Sullivan can call their younger sibling.
If the reports are to be believed, Patrick and Jillian don’t plan to have any more kids; they are done! Some say that the couple had already decided that before the birth of their twin sons.
Can they be judged for this decision? I don’t think so. You see, I did a little research and found out that American couples are getting less and less interested in having kids AT ALL.
Well, everyone can give a different reason for this. But, it has been more than 15 years, and I think the celebrity couple is actually adhering to their decision.
The Marital Life Of Patrick & Jillian
Before marrying each other, Jillian and Patrick were in a serious relationship. They made it official on the 31st of July 1999 in a farmhouse in Maine, USA.
Patrick invited only a handful of close friends and relatives to the wedding ceremony. But how did they meet each other?
As mentioned above, Jillian is a make-up artist in Hollywood today, but she started off with a salon. Jillian says that Patrick once came to her salon for a haircut, and that’s where it all began.
Precisely, they were together for about three months before tying the knot, and it was Patrick who, after knowing that she was single, proposed to her.
How Did Their Marital Issues Escalate?
Despite having an ideal relationship, they were still having several husband-wife problems. You know the ones that every couple has.
But, it was clear that their Titanic (marriage) was slowly sinking (falling apart). It did, eventually. In the January of 2015, Jillian reached court and filed a divorce from her husband.
The court asked the couple to talk things through before making a final call. Thanks to the judge, they both spoke about their issues and decided to address them together.
One year later, in November 2016, they mutually decided NOT to get divorced. Because of this decision, it has been more than 22 years since the couple has been married.
Darby Galen’s Father, Patrick Dempsey
Patrick needs no introduction, honestly. For those of us, who have been fans of the 80s and 90s movies and TV shows, it’s pretty difficult not to know about Patrick Dempsey.
He was born on the 13th of January 1966 in Lewiston, Maine, USA. His complete name is Patrick Galen Dempsey.
Dempsey began his acting career in 1985, and it has been more than 35 years since he has been at it. Before marrying Jillian, he was married to Rocky Parker.
He was with Rocky Parker from 1987 to 1994 for about seven years. However, he doesn’t have any kids with Parker.
Patrick married Jillian five years after his divorce from Rocky. He has worked in many great movies and TV shows; the most famous among them is “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Some more of his Hollywood projects are “Some Girls,” “In The Mood,” “Loverboy,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Bank Robber, “Blonde,” “Will & Grace,” “Jeremiah,” and many others.
He has also won several awards like Young Artist Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, People’s Choice Award, and some others. Besides this he has also been nominated for many.
