Doting daddy Eric Dane carried his smiley 2-year-old daughter Billie while shopping at the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday (July 29) alongside wife Rebecca Gayheart. The trio were not joined by their latest addition, 7-month-old daughter Georgia.
The hunky actor announced last week that he is leaving the hit show Grey’s Anatomy after an eight season stint as Dr. Mark Sloan (a.k.a. McSteamy).
Eric first appeared as a guest star in season two, but viewers were happy to see him return as a regular from the following series onward.
The father-of-two said, “I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey’s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run.”
The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes made a public statement on his departure.
“(McSteamy is) one of the most beloved characters on Grey’s Anatomy. He did not come to this decision lightly, but after much consideration and conversations, he and I decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end. We’re a big family here at Grey’s with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family. I wish him the best and I look forward to watching him as he continues to steam up the big and small.”
Will you still watch Grey’s now that McSteamy is gone?
