“I’m just enjoying life more than I ever have. I’ve worked hard to get to this point in my relationship and in my career. I understand how fortunate we are to have had the phenomenon that’s happening with Grey’s Anatomy. I’m trying to enjoy the moment while it’s here and to be able to provide for my family so that I can step away and enjoy raising them away from all this.”
