Patrick Dempsey wants to renew his wedding vows.

The 50-year-old actor split from his wife Jillian last January, but they recently called off their divorce and he reportedly now wants to prove his commitment to the make-up artist.

However, Jillian - who has daughter Tallulah, 12, and seven-year-old twin sons, Sullivan and Darby, with the Grey's Anatomy star - wants to take things slowly, and has also urged Patrick to curb his motorsports hobby.

A source told "It's incredibly exciting for all their friends and family, but Jillian wouldn't never have accepted unless he agreed to slow down on his motorsports racing.


"It was devastating when they split and he's still not out of the woods yet.

"Jillian wants to take things slow, as though they were dating for the first time, and rebuild from scratch before renewing their vows."

Patrick has agreed with her request because he is determined to do whatever it takes to make things work.

The source added: "Patrick thinks it's a shame to have to quit racing but he's determined to not mess things up.

"He loves that woman and they've gone through so much together, and he's doing everything she asks him to do."
