Ellen Pompeo, who mopes and pouts her way through “Grey’s Anatomy” as the magnetically sexy Dr. Meredith Grey every week, is pregnant with her first child, People reports. Oh, and in case it wasn’t clear, I was being sarcastic about the “magnetically sexy” thing.
The Grey’s Anatomy star, 39, and [husband Chris] Ivery, 41, a music producer, were married by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a low-key ceremony in November 2007. The couple met in a grocery store in 2003 and began dating six months later.
Pompeo, who’s recently been spotted shopping for baby gear around Los Angeles, is not the only Seattle Grace doctor having a baby in real life: Costar Chyler Leigh and her husband, Nathan West, are expecting her third child, a girl, in May.
Ugh, I could tolerate this kind of news so much better ten years ago, when Ellen Pompeo was called “Calista Flockhart” and the excruciating hour-long chick flick of a TV show that was called “Ally McBeal.” You know, I’m not a woman myself (not until the weekend, anyway), but I think that women might still identify with a female lead even if the character didn’t look anorexic and act all crazy. I’m just spit-balling here. Work with me.
