Ellen DeGeneres is helping Patrick Dempsey get ready for Valentine’s Day.
The talk show host gave the “Grey’s Anatomy” star a special gift during his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday — underwear.
DeGeneres gave him several pairs — a pair of red boxers, a pair of yellow boxers, a pair of rubber boxers — and one more.
“Wait a minute,” DeGeneres said, handing him a black thong. “Put that on!”
The star pulled up the thong over his jeans to the cheers of the crowd and then sat back down.
“You’ll always have my support,” DeGeneres told him.
And Dempsey took a moment to talk “Grey’s”: Will his Dr. McDreamy be hearing the pitter-patter of little feet?
“I think (Derek) Shepherd definitely wants children, (Meredith) probably not so much,” he said. “(Creator) Shonda Rimes certainly doesn’t want us to have children!”
