Family affair for Patrick Dempsey at Bridget Jones's Baby premiere

It was a big night for Patrick Dempsey, and he had his beautiful family there to support him as he stepped out for the premiere of Bridget Jones's Baby in London on Monday. The handsome actor brought along his wife Jillian Dempsey, daughter Tallula, 14, and nine-year-old twin boys Darby and Sullivan for the big unveiling of the movie, and couldn't have looked happier as they all posed together on the pink carpet.


The outing marked Patrick and Jillian's first official appearance since calling off their divorce earlier this year. Jillian had filed for divorce from the Grey's Anatomy star in January 2015 after 15 years of marriage. By the end of the year though, the couple started to be seen in public as they privately worked towards a reconciliation, and in May 2016, Patrick happily confirmed they were back together.

"You have to work at everything," he told ES Magazine. "And you cannot do everything. Something has to be sacrificed."

Bridget Jones's Baby sees serial singleton Bridget fall pregnant shortly before her 43rd birthday – but there's a hitch; she can only be 50 per cent sure who the baby's father is. Patrick stars as Jack Qwant, one of the potential candidates – Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth, is the other.

Patrick, 50, told reporters at the premiere that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in a fourth installment of the series. "It would be nice to see Bridget growing and living her life," he said. "There hasn't been another character like that where you're growing up with her."


Stars of the show: Patrick Dempsey, Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth

Leading lady Renee Zellweger was of course at the screening, looking sensational in a navy blue off-the-shoulder dress with a central slit. Colin attended with his wife Livia and looked typically dapper in a blue suit, while Emma Thompson brought along her 16-year-old daughter Gaia for a super-glam evening out together.
