Ellen Pompeo, Chris Ivery Engaged!

by at . Comments
Congratulations!Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, her boyfriend of nearly three years, are officially engaged, Us Weekly reports.

Ivery, 38, proposed on Friday -- which was Pompeo's 37th birthday -- with a 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond and platinum ring by Tacori.

That's quite the birthday gift, but their relationship is laid-back. Chris popped the question after breakfast at home, and following that, he and Ellen proceeded to celebrate with a fairly low-key day.

"We had a great day," Pompeo told People. "We walked on the beach, then we came home, took a shower and went out for sushi. Then we laid on the couch with the dogs and watched TV."

Pompeo has risen to fame as Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy. She has also starred in various movies, including Old School and Moonlight Mile. Ivery is a music producer she met in an L.A. grocery store, and though Pompeo wasn't interested in a date originally, she agreed to go out with Ivery when they bumped into each other again six months later.

That's when they discovered that they grew up 10 miles from each other outside of Boston and that Chris knew Ellen's father.

"I had to go 3,000 miles away to meet a guy who practically grew up next door," Pompeo told the Boston Herald last year. "But I guess everything comes full circle."

Although the couple has not yet set a date or location for the big day, the romantic European destination of Italy might be a good guess.

"My boyfriend and I travel to Italy quite often and I think that’s always the most romantic for us," Pompeo told Us earlier this year. "We went to Bologna and he has family there and I think that’s our favorite place."

Congratulations to the happy couple! It's great that Ellen is happy with her real-life McDreamy. Below is a picture a fan sent us of the two of them taken on the day of their engagement!

Dear "Rev. Lacy Walters", Please sit down and have a talk with your parents... first of all you should ask them if know what the cross stands for... and if they know that then they should impart on you that He died on that cross for the same reason that you wish to "dangle" others... injustice and prejudice. You are not on this earth to judge... that is is not your job... that is the Almighty's job. and I am not on this earth to judge you, but I really may end up at church a day early because I just can't figure out why your parents named you Lacy... but I shall not judge :) Merry Christmas to all,
Amanda

How great for her! And for him! They look extremely tickled to be together. And now a note about these racist comments. I would imagine that the racism in a couple of comments may be the reason she wanted a private wedding...nothing public (as she was saying in interviews). If you don't agree with their so-called "mixed-races" then that's on you. But obviously that would be your issue, not everyone elses. Some people prefer redheads, some like brunettes, some like pale skin, some like dark skin, and some DON'T CARE. It's just as much a personal preference as anything else that has to do with human attraction. Why do people care? These are awfully harsh words to use against another human being because of skin tone. Give me a couple of hours in the sun, I can show you a dark skin tone. Doesn't make me any different on the inside. Anyway, I just thought that should be said. I love reading celeb "gossip", but there are always a few people who only want to be here to be catty and mean about someone who can't "get back at you." So awful.

OMG!!! I hate racist people so much! Ya know, the world would be SUCH a better place if you just learned to keep your hating mouth's shut!!!! You act as if you were only 5 years old the way you make fun of people for the color of their skin. I have two words for you: GROW UP!! Come on now we are in the 21st century maybe back in the 1800's it wasn't against the law to discriminate but now it is so I suggest that you let everyone live in peace and accept people for who they are. God loves everyone no matter what and I suggest you change your ways racists if you want God's love on you! P.S.
I'm a white person who believes in love for everyone no matter what color there skin is. Its what's in the persons heart that makes them ugly. According to me anyone who is racist is the ugliest person on the planet.

For those who love to live unproven I can put you all to shame with the truth. If you dare, read a book called "Nature Knows No Color Line" by J.A. Rogers. And just so you know, the woman on the cover of the book is Charlotte Sophia, a black woman who was Queen of England from 1744 - 1818. Ooops did I just hit you with something that you didnt know...................Oh well just keeping it real. I know that you wont read it and even if you do, because you are comfortable living based on lies for the rest of your life proves your inferiority and your child like mind state to avoid the truth. Only uneducated white people say things like that, you know the ones that didn't graduate from high school and are most likely imbred and allergic to the sun. Welcome to the truth. Realistic Man is here for anyone who wants the challenge. But be warned if you don't come with facts that you can back up......Don't come at all.... I will not entertain ignorance!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS: I LOVE THOSE KENTUCKY RACIST, (they make it too easy for me to prove their ignorance) Now you kentucky dummys get someone who can really challenge the descendents of TIMBUKTU because you are partaking in a losing battle. CLASS DISMISSED!

The irony of all of these comments is that none of these racist viewers would have a show to watch or stars to criticize if a Black woman hadn't created the show--Shonda Rimes. Why do you ever bother watching the show or making comments on this website if you can't realize that the show is about shattering stereotypes? Thank goodness the writers brought in the white supremacist subplot--maybe you can learn something.

why are all the racists leaving their phone numbers and addresses? like anyone would actually take the time or even want to contact them? give me a break. I feel sorry for the twisted perversions that Rev. Lacy is preaching to her church. so sad.

Milton, I so agree my brother. I was adopted as a child by poor white people who did it mainly for the money & I'm very thankful I got the chance to live.My biological parents were both irresponsible, my father a black man, mother a fat white trash female and both I despise.I still have issues of hate towards them and even myself at times.I'm 36 years of age, have no friends or family that matter but I do okay. It's tough growing up as a mutt, people whispering and looking down at you. It's a feeling I deal with daily. I have had friends for girls but never had a real girl friend. I do have my bird,a doggie and my boat. Milton if you're ever on yahoo chat look me up in religion#5,, i use the id invictus_militis. Take care my brother

Ok so I thought that Abraham Lincolon wrote the Emancipation Proclamation in order to free all people of discrimination and slavery. Everyone who has a racist comment, whether it be about blacks or whites, they should step back and see how it sounds. To me it sounds like they are the ones who are insecure about themselves and need to put other people down in order to make themselves feel good. It's a disgrace to read what some of the people have to say. Like my mom always use to tell me when I was about 2 YEARS OLD!!.....if you cant' say anything nice then don't say it at all. You racists be ashamed!!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.

Meredith

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.
