In a surprising announcement, Ellen Pompeo revealed that she welcomed her second child – daughter Sienna May – via surrogate with husband Chris Ivery.
“Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world,” Pompeo wrote on Instagram Thursday, October 2. “We love you more than words can say.”
The Grey’s Anatomy actress, 44 and Ivery, 46, kept their impending baby joy completely under wraps.
The new mom-of-two went on to share further information via Twitter.
Sienna was born via surrogate & I would like to thank my whole @ShondalandTV family for helping us enjoy these first few weeks privately ❤️U

Last month, the actress hinted at her busy future.
“I definitely don’t have a strong desire to act after Grey’s,” she said during a BuzzFeed-hosted panel. “I definitely feel myself transitioning. I don’t find acting terribly empowering. For the place I am in my life…I don’t necessarily want to work for other people.”
Pompeo and Ivery are also parents to 5-year-old daughter Stella Luna.
Congratulations to them!
