No, he's not angling for Patrick Dempsey's role on Grey's Anatomy. But the husband of Ellen Pompeo can't help but gush about married life.
At Paris Fashion Week Monday, the actress and her longtime partner / spouse of two months were clearly still on cloud nine over their recent nuptials.
Chris Ivery is the McDreamy of Ellen Pompeo in real life.
But does Ellen Pompeo think that her TV alter ego, Meredith Grey, will ever find similar happiness with Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd?
"Who can say?" she sighed at Italian designer Giorgio Armani's Monday fashion show. "We're not working because of the writers' strike."
Chris Ivery, a music producer, piped in on cue: "I am the real McDreamy!"
Also on hand for Armani's show in the City of Lights were Hilary Swank, Dita von Teese and the legendary Sophia Loren.
