Ellen Pompeo Gushes Over Daughter, Parenting

at . Comments

Meredith and Derek may try for a McBaby this spring. In real life, Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery welcomed theirs, daughter Stella Luna, 15 months ago.

Those 15 months make every day feel like a holiday, says Ellen.

“Every day is like Christmas morning. Every day when I go to her room to get her from her crib, that's just indescribable,” the Grey’s Anatomy star tells People.

The 41-year-old actress opened up about her first child and the joys of parenting at the opening of The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas and Marquee Friday.

“I thought I was happy before, but she just brings so much joy. She’s such a happy girl,” she says of Stella, who has been making great strides lately.

“She’s got the walking thing down, which is terrifying, as the falling thing comes with that of course,” Pompeo shares, adding that talking started too.

“When we left the hotel room just now she said, ‘Bye’ [to her father]. She said it once and it was super exciting. I screamed!” Pompeo revealed. “The door was slamming and I opened the door and said, ‘Did you hear that?!’ She’s adorable.”

Seriously. What's not to love about that?

That's sweet, cherish all the moments because before you know it she is a young lady and you'll be wondering what happened to my baby she is all grown up. My daughter is 24 and so is her twin brother, I got doubly blessed first time out. Kids grow so fast.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.
