When McDreamy turns into your worst nightmare.

Ellen Pompeo recently revealed that her husband of 14 years, Chris Ivery, wasn’t always a fan of Patrick Dempsey‘s character (Derek Shepherd or McDreamy) on Grey’s Anatomy.

During an interview on the podcast “Ladies First with Laura Brown”, the ABC star spoke openly about her husband’s initial reaction to her hot kissing scenes with Patrick – who played her love interest and her future husband in the hit television series.

“The poor guy had no idea what he was getting into,” said the ABC star in an interview on Tuesday, July 27th. “I remember it was really hard for him at the beginning. He said,” This is not what I signed. You go to work and mess with it. ‘I like Patrick and everything, he’s a good guy, but really?’ “

Despite leaving the show in 2015, Patrick made an epic return to season 17 in April.
