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

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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)
