Ellen Pompeo Teases Grey's Anatomy Wedding

at . Comments

Sans scrubs, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her husband, Chris Ivery, paid a visit to the Children's Hospital in her native Boston on March 31.

The Everett, Mass., native, who attended the hospital's Women in Medicine Luncheon today, spent a ton of time talking to patients and their parents.

Ellen Pompeo impressed us not only with her easy beside manner but also her knowledge of medicine. "It's from my job," said the TV doctor.

"They do so much to make that part of it authentic."

Enormous basketball fans that they are, Pompeo and Chris Ivery were in their usual spots, front and center at the Celtics game on Sunday.

"I love the Celtics, but we love NBA basketball," she said.

"When we travel we go see games. The only thing I have to be that loyal to is my husband, everything else I can have more than one."

Asked about Katherine Heigl's recent comment about Meredith and Derek getting married - on the show's 100th episode, no less - Pompeo grinned and said:

"There's a wedding ... There's a setting that's a wedding, that's all I can say right now. I can't say who gets married. We're still working on the episode."

The actress told the Boston Globe she's thankful for the show's longevity, and credited the loyal fans of Grey's Anatomy for the show's continued success.

"Sometimes it seems like a long time and other times, I think, 'Wow, where did the five years go?' It's a lot like life and I've learned to think that way - to appreciate that it's going by quickly ... Our fans are the real reason we're on the air. They are so supportive."
