Talula Fyfe Dempsey’s Parents Met In 1994
Talula Fyfe Dempsey’s parents met each other for the first time in 1994, shortly after his divorce from his first wife, the late actress Rochelle “Rocky” Parker, was finalized. Coincidentally, Talula’s father had booked an appointment at the hair salon where her mother worked, and when he came in for the appointment, she was the one who attended to his needs.
Jillian, Talula’s mother, was shocked but pleasantly pleased because Patrick was so good-looking. It took her father a while, three years to be precise, to work up the courage to ask a then very single Jillian out on a date.
They Got Married in 1999
The first date must have been awesome because things between the couple moved on pretty fast from that point, eventually resulting in the wedding that took place on July 31, 1999, at Talula’s father’s family’s farmhouse in Maine.
As previously stated, Talula was the first child of her parent’s marriage; she was born in February 2002. 19 days short of 5 years to the day of her birth, Talula’s mother gave birth to her twin brothers, Sullivan Patrick Dempsey and Darby Galen Dempsey were both welcomed into the world on February 1, 2007.
Talula’s Parents Are Still Together
The marriage between Talula’s parents hasn’t always been smooth sailing, and while they celebrated 22 years as a married couple on July 31, 2022, the reverse would have been the case if the events of 2015 had played out differently. At the time, Talula’s parents were just 16 years into their now over two-decade-long marriage when her mother, Jillian, filed for a divorce in 2015.
She had cited irreconcilable differences and also sought joint custody of their three children, including Talula. The reality of the situation was confirmed by a press release her parents had overseen together. The wording of the press release essentially said that Talula’s parents had decided to end their marriage after careful consideration and that their primary concern was the welfare and well-being of their children. They also requested privacy due to the sensitive nature of the then impending divorce.
For all intents and purposes, Talula’s parents’ marriage appeared to be drawing to an inevitable conclusion until the couple was photographed in Paris together. The pictures depicted a relationship that was healing, and many waited with bated breath for confirmation which eventually came in May 2015 after Talula’s father revealed that the then-estranged couple was indeed back together.
Talula’s mother filed to stop the divorce proceedings on November 4, 2016, and a judge granted the request to put an end to the divorce on November 12, 2016.
