Ellen Pompeo is Pregnant!

Start the Baby McDreamy watch (sort of)!

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is pregnant with her husband, Chris Ivery, her rep confirms.

"It's great news," says Jennifer Allen. "They're ecstatic."

The couple, both natives of the Boston area, met in a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003 and began dating six months later. They've been together ever since.

The actress, 39, and Chris Ivery, 41, were married personally by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a low-key ceremony on her birthday in November 2007.

They got engaged on her birthday exactly a year earlier in 2006.


Chris Ivery: Ellen Pompeo's real-life McDreamy.

No word on whether there is a McDreamy Jr. in the works, given this new announcement. Don't be so sure. Chyler Leigh, who plays Pompeo's half-sister on the show, is currently expecting but her pregnancy was hidden, not worked into the script.

"I keep wondering when the transition from carrying charts to pushing wheelchairs to pushing gurneys to close up face shots in the OR will happen," Leigh, who already has two children with her husband, joked to Access Hollywood a couple of months ago.

"I guess the positive is, I'll have really buff arms from all the carrying and pushing of random medical equipment." Meredith's got to be pregnant on the show, right?

Either way, congratulations to Ellen and Chris from all of us at Grey's Anatomy Insider! Click to enlarge more photos of the happy, expectant couple below ...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


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."
