In addition to his role as Dr. McSteamy on Grey's Anatomy, Eric Dane has another job these days: starting a family.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show set to air Wednesday, the actor, 36, admitted he and his wife of four years, actress Rebecca Gayheart, also 36, would like to have children.

"We’re currently working on that," he said. But he added the process hasn't been simple.

"It’s funny because you get the doctors involved and they call you and it's like, In eight days I’ll have to put in some work," he explained. Then, he said, for four days, "I will be very busy and I probably shouldn’t schedule anything else."

DeGeneres then suggested that four days of sex sounded like "tough work."

"Hard work," he agreed, "great if you can get it though."

The actor also addressed recent rumors that his costars Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight will be leaving the ABC series. (In the past, Heigl has publically expressed unhappiness with her plotlines.)

"I worked with them this morning and they were both very present," he said, noting only the show's executive producer, Shonda Rhimes, could comment on their futures.

"Until the boss says this is going down, it’s not happening."
