Ellen Pompeo and her husband, Chris Ivery, are expecting their first child.
“It’s great news,” says Pompeo’s rep. “They’re ecstatic.”
The Grey’s Anatomy star, 39, and Ivery, 41, a music producer, were married by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a private ceremony in November 2007. The couple met while grocery shopping in 2003 and began dating six months later.
Pompeo, who’s recently been spotted shopping for baby gear, is not the only Seattle Grace doctor having a baby in real life. Her costar Chyler Leigh (who plays her sister) is expecting her third child, a girl, in May.
Congrats to the Pompeo-Ivery family!
We can’t wait to see if this will be written into the Grey’s script!
