This was Kevin McKidd’s dream wedding that ended as his drama on Grey’s Anatomy

In March 2018, Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd announced on his website that he and Arielle Goldrath, a private chef with whom he was in a romantic relationship, were married, further revealing that the couple is expecting a baby together. “ Arielle and I are very happy to announce our marriage and our new baby boy, soon to join our growing family,” McKidd wrote, in a post titled “Very happy, great news!”.

“My children are happy for us too and are looking forward to the arrival of their newest sibling!” he continued. The actor said his close friends and family gathered with the Grey’s Anatomy family to share their day of celebration: a low-key, intimate gathering culminating in a Scottish Ceilidh dance. Kevin McKidd concluded the post by writing, “There is so much to be thankful for and we are excited for the adventures 2018 will bring us all!”

The Scottish native actor also included a smiling photo in his wedding day post of the couple that was taken as they walked hand in hand down the aisle after pronouncing their vows, before Rabbi Emma Lutz. For his nuptials, held at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, Kevin McKidd wore a traditional green kilt , from 21st Century Kilts, and his bride donned a floor-length, fitted, lace gown.

Kevin McKidd fails in his second marriage

Kevin McKidd, who plays former US Army trauma surgeon Owen Hunt , joined Grey’s Anatomy during its fifth season as the love interest of Sandra Oh’s Christina Yang. Although her characters married, they divorced before Oh left the show. Hunt is now married to Amelia Shepherd, played by Caterina Scorsone. Off-screen, this is the second marriage for McKidd, who was previously married to his ex-wife Jane Parker, whom he was married to for 17 years. The couple share joint legal custody of their two children, daughter Iona, 15, and son Joseph, 17, and have been divorced since December 2016.

But the Grey’s Anatomy star’s love story was very short-lived. In July 2022, the actor announced that he “decided to end the marriage” after five years together. According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Kevin McKidd’s wife, Arielle Leigh Goldrath, officially filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for separating from her. In addition, the woman requested joint physical and legal custody of her two children: Aiden, 4, and Nava, 3, and asked the court to restore her original name, Arielle Leigh Goldrath.
