Things are on the upswing for Patrick Dempsey and estranged wife Jillian’s marriage as a source tells PEOPLE plans for divorce are now off the table.
“For the past year, Patrick and Jillian have been working on getting to where they are right now. They are not dating anyone else, and only each other,” a source tells PEOPLE.
“They seem very happy and are spending a lot of time together. They go on dates and are also involved with the kids together,” says the source. The divorce made Patrick miserable. It was definitely a wakeup call.”
The source adds that divorce plans between Patrick, 50, and Jillian, have been nixed.
“There are no more divorce plans. Patrick and Jillian plan on being a family again,” the source says.
On Jan. 13, Jillian posted an Instagram photo of the two together to celebrate Patrick’s 50th birthday.
The couple shares children Tallula, 13, and twins Sullivan and Darby, 8.
