Ellen Pompeo & Chris Ivery: Married in New York City

at . Comments

It looks like Ellen Pompeo had a lot more to celebrate last weekend than her 38th birthday! And we wondered what they were doing in New York.

The star of Grey's Anatomy and her longtime boyfriend/fiance, music producer Chris Ivery, quietly got married on Friday at New York's City Hall, where none other than Mayor Michael Bloomberg served as their witness.

Appropriately, Pompeo and Ivery got engaged almost exactly a year ago while celebrating the actress' 37th birthday. Ellen Pompeo, an Everett, Mass., native, repeatedly professed that she and Chris Ivery would prefer a quiet wedding.

And how low-key it was.

A city clerk performed the minutes-long ceremony with only Michael Bloomberg - like Pompeo and Ivery, a Boston-area native (he grew up in Medford, Mass.) - and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris accompanying the couple.

Congratulations to Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery from all of us!

"They are over the moon," Ellen Pompeo's spokeswoman, Jennifer Allen, told the Boston Globe yesterday. The discreet newlyweds were spotted courtside at the New York Knicks game Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

Ellen Pompeo was back in Hollywood yesterday filming Grey's Anatomy, which is expected to shut down production soon because of the writers' strike.

@Martha's Vineyard @Chimpout Are you honkies mad?


Martha's Vineyard you're right, few things nastier than white slut with a chimp. Now she has a niglet of all things. Disgusting vomit-inducing chimp-lover with no self-respect. She ought to just stand on a street corner with a sign selling her 'services' to any male for $20. Idiot.


Wow, some of the posts here make me think that I'm in 'Lost' and have time-travelled to the past.


How proud your family must be, coalburner. Once, I looked at you and saw a beautiful lady. Now I see an opportunistic skank, who has defiled herself and shamed her ancestors. There are consequences for our actions. My utter disgust at your treachery is one of those consequences.

YO!! just like many of the lovely people here, i want to send the sweetest "GROW UP OR GET OUT" message to: DaveR42, JOhnT, MP, TommT. Have you never said yourself that 'appearances don't matter in relationships', and not realised that race applies in the exact same way? you can call anyone non-white apes... but i thought HUMANS were loving, intelligent, compassionate people - what are you honeys? nahhhhhh.... leave. i wish Chris & Ellen, Ellen & Chris all the happiness they could have. best of luck.


I was one Chris Ivery's best friends in Jr High school and high school and wish the he and Ellen enjoy the intimacies of marriage forever.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
