Happy birthday, Ellen Pompeo! The Grey's Anatomy star is 40 today! That's hard to believe for such a youthful-looking actress. She's beautiful at any age, that's for sure!

In the last five years, we've seen her narrate our favorite show for more than 125 episodes, get married to Chris Ivery and give birth to their first child, daughter Stella.

Life's good for the Boston native, and we're happy to be fans of one of the more "real" celebs you'll find. Happy birthday, Ellen! Here's a little photo tribute to the birthday girl...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
