Congrats to Grey’s Anatomy Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery on the birth of their third child recently, Pompeo’s rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.
The private duo waited two months to announced the birth of their daughter Sienna in 2014 but perhaps because they have their first son, she was elated to share the news of the birth of a son to the world.
Ellen revealed the baby’s gender and name on Instagram.
“❤️Eli Christopher❤️ Chris Ivery just fell a notch.. I’ve got a new guy,” she captioned a photo of Ivery with their son nestled on his chest on a bed.
Pompeo and Ivery have been married since 2007 and along with Sierra, they have another daughter named Stella who was born in 2009.
They never announced this pregnancy at all.
Though she gave birth to Stella, the actress used the help of a surrogate to welcome Sienna.
Back in 2014, Pompeo opened up about the surrogacy process, telling Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, “This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous.”
Ellen continued, “I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. 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.”
Another Grey’s star from the past, Katherine Heigl is also expecting after adopting a couple of kids herself.
