Ellen Pompeo + Chris Ivery Welcome Baby Boy to Family
Congratulations are in order for Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery, who welcomed their third child home, according to PEOPLE.
Their rep told the publication, “Everyone’s doing great.”
Pompeo posted a photo to Instagram of Ivery holding the couple’s new baby, a boy named Eli Christopher, along with the caption, "Chris Ivery just fell a notch.. I've got a new guy."
Eli Christopher joins fellow siblings Stella, who was born in 2009, and Sienna May, who came to the couple via surrogacy back in 2014.
Pompeo spoke about having a child via surrogate during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in October 2014.
"This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone's child," she said via US Weekly. "I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous.
"I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands," Pompeo continued. "I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo. I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy, and they inseminated her. And then we held hands, and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out, and now we have a gorgeous baby girl."
