Ellen Pompeo & Chris Ivery: Married in New York City

by 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.

Hey Bea,
thats is a great point you made!!! :) this guy is obviously a shovenist PIG!!! and he doesn't deserve our attention!! u r totally right!! and like i said before congrats to ellen and chris!! Grey's Rules!!! SERIOUSLY!!! :)


Hey people! Let's calm down and not let JOhnT get the space he wants. Thought I can't belive that anyone would ever even THINK these things. Let's say he's a 15 years old scared little kid who just wants some attention. It must be it because this is 2007...! Ellen and Chris is a beautiful cople together!


I am happy for Ellen, but I still can't help to wish she was with Patrick Dempsey other then Ivery. But anyway, Congrats Ellen and Chris! <3


JOhnT .. Are you human by any chance???? I highly doubt it. I love Ellen and Chris. they are a great couple. I wish them a lifetime of happiness. they deserve it.
She is getting all kind of thumbs up from all the media for her successful hush hush wedding, for promising one thing and actually doing it. TRUE TO HER WORD, is what they are all saying, Ellens stocks are now way way up there. Kudos to her and Chris.


okay, i just have one more thing to say about this whole deal!!! i can't believe that anyone would have the balls to say something as cruel as what they did on the website!!! (yes, i am referring to the racial slurs used against chris ivery) i mean how ridiculous can u get!!! people need to back off and realize that just like its been said for years, everyone is created equal. if this is who she loves then allow her to live her life and love him, and don't judge her for that. she is a whore and she is stupid, she just loves who she loves!!!! i can't believe that you have never had a kind relationship with someone of a different race, and really believe in racism that much that you people would say the things that you did!!! so just get over yourselves and GO LIVE YOUR OWN LIVES!!!!!


sorry to ellen and chris that this is such a late congratulations!!! i think its great that they did something so low key, as to keep the slime bag media out of their lives! oh, and to answer DaveR42, its b/c she loves him and is happy with him, so just leave her alone and let her live her life. She doesn't need idiots like you telling her how she should live her life!!! so just BACK OFF!!!! anyhow, congrats to ellen and chris and may they have a happy life together! :) Grey's Rules!! SERIOUSLY!!!! :)


congratulations from kuwait to bothe of them , and i wish to them all the best ,,,


Maybe becos she loves him, which makes a difference to everything by the way. Plus its really not nice to call people apes, they are also human's with feelings you know. pls do live this woman in peace and let her enjoy her life.


Eww, and soon she'll be pumping out little half apes. Why Ellen why?!?

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."
