by at . Comments

Looks like Ellen Pompeo had a lot more to celebrate last weekend than her 38th birthday. The Grey's Anatomy actress her fiance, music exec Chris Ivery, got married Friday at New York's City Hall, reports the Boston Globe.

None other than New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - a Boston-area native like both Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery - served as the couple's witness.

Ellen Pompeo repeatedly said that she and Ivery wouldn't opt for usual wedding hoopla, preferring a quiet, low-key affair. She made good on that promise.

A city clerk performed the brief ceremony with only Bloomberg and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris accompanying Pompeo and Chris Ivery.

"They are over the moon," Pompeo's spokeswoman told the Boston Globe.

She and Chris Ivery were spotted at the New York Knicks game Sunday night at Madison Square Garden, sitting next to John Mayer and Minka Kelly.

Ellen Pompeo was back in Hollywood yesterday filming Grey's Anatomy, which is expected to shut down production soon due to the writers' strike.


It was about twenty six years ago when Chris Ivery and I were in the eighth grade together and he invited me to attend the 1981 Boston Celtics season opener against the Detroit Pistons. It was fun attending the opener and watching the young and future world champions, however after the game as Chris and I were on an escalator in the old North Station both of my sneakers toes got pulled in and Chris save me by getting help. I could have lost my feet and in fact both my sneakers had their fronts ripped off. Chris was panicking at first and was prespiring but he gathered his thoughts and ran a quarter mile alerting a transit cop who was able to shut the escalator down before it took off my toes and feet. It blows my mind that Chris is a front row regular attendee of the LA Lakers and other NBA teams with his soul mate Ellen.
