McKidd was cast in the Rhimes series Grey’s Anatomy in 2008 as Dr. Owen Hunt, a United States Army trauma surgeon. His character became a love interest for Sandra Oh’s Dr. Cristina Yang, and the couple struggled with his war-related PTSD. In the years that followed, Hunt and Yang divorced, Oh left the show and Hunt began a relationship with and later married Dr. Teddy Altman, his good friend and fellow veteran.

Savre has been a member of the cast of the Rhimes series and Grey’s spinoff Station 19 since its premiere in 2018. Five years later, after directing an episode of the series, she told Phosphor magazine that playing her character, Maya Bishop, has been a great journey.

“Playing Maya has taught me that you have to balance work and your personal life ... I’m probably a little bit too much of a workaholic, but it’s always been a priority, and Maya’s arc sheds light on the fact that your personal life has to have its priorities too and there have to be boundaries," Savre said.

The pair have even had the opportunity to work together several times. They first costarred on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in the show’s 16th season in 2020, when Bishop was introduced at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Likewise, Hunt has made multiple appearances on Station 19, including crossover episodes, starting in the series' third season in 2020.

They started dating in 2023

McKidd and Savre were spotted kissing while on a trip in Italy in June 2023, though they didn’t officially confirm their relationship at the time.

A few weeks later, McKidd shared a reel on Instagram from a trip to the Lower Zambezi in Zambia and featured Savre in various romantic clips.

He captioned the video, “A million thank you’s to everyone @chiawasafaris & @howelltalentrelations for the trip of a LIFETIME! Your hospitality, knowledge, heart and humor made our trip to the Lower Zambezi beyond our expectations. Our adventure was breathtaking, awe inspiring, humbling and uplifting, all because of you guys.”

Prior to dating Savre, McKidd has been married twice. The Grey’s Anatomy star and his ex-wife of 17 years, Jane Parker, finalized their divorce in 2017. They are parents to two children, Iona and Joseph. McKidd and his second wife, Arielle Goldrath, welcomed two children as well, a son named Aiden and a daughter named Nava. The pair announced their split in July 2022 and finalized their divorce 11 months later.
