Patrick Dempsey, aka Dr. McDreamy, had a real-life experience recently in the emergency room when one of his fraternal twin boys, age 3, broke his arm while dancing on the dining room table. The incident made him conclude that raising his boys, Darby and Sullivan, is just different than what he experienced with eight-year-old daughter Talula.
“Boys are completely different than girls for obvious reasons, but physically they’re so much more active!” he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “You cannot turn your back [because] there’s always an injury, there’s always something going on.”
And playing a neurosurgeon on tv comes in handy while raising kids. Joked Dempsey: “I get a lot of equipment from Grey’s, so I have my own OR which is really nice. I do a lot of brain surgery on them — experimentation.”
