Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 42, recently learned he has a secret love child, according to US Weekly.
“Yes, I have a 4-year-old son with Jeffrey,” says Sherrie Rose, an actress and producer, in the latest issue.
The former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ costar found out a few weeks ago.
“He’s shocked and surprised, but he wants to be in the child’s life,” a source tells the magazine.
No details are available at this time as to why Rose chose to keep the child’s paternity from the actor, or why she is revealing it now.
Morgan was in a relationship with Rose before he started dating his ‘Weeds’ costar Mary Louise Parker in 2006. Parker and Morgan called off their engagement in 2008.
Morgan has become known for being cast as the guy that gets killed off of shows, like in his roles as Denny Duquette on ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ the Winchester dad on ‘Supernatural’ and Nancy Botwin’s husband on ‘Weeds.’ He even parlayed his niche to the big screen playing the offed Comedian in the graphic-novel film ‘Watchmen.’
