Is Dr. McSteamy's marriage on life support? So claims Life & Style, which says Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, who are awaiting the arrival of baby No. 2, have hit a rough patch following the "Grey's Anatomy" actor's June rehab check-in to treat an addiction to prescription painkillers.
"He went to rehab to try to get it all straight before the birth of their second kid," alleges a source. "They are trying, but the marriage is not working out."
According to the tab, Dane is doing better after seeking treatment. But he and Gayheart purportedly "aren't talking much," and he "wants to make sure his problems are behind him before moving back into the house."
Last month, he was twicephotographed on solo playdates with 18-month-old daughter Billie.
"Rebecca is trying to hold it all together as she deals with her pregnancy," says the spy, "but she thinks right now it's better if she's alone."
Adding fuel to the rift rumors: Gayheart has been spotted without her wedding ring, although it's possible that her bare finger could simply be the result of stork-related swelling.
