Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery welcomed their first child, a girl, the weekend before last, according to reports.

"Her name is Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery," her rep said.

Stella was born September 15 in Los Angeles.

Ellen Pompeo, 39, and Chris Ivery, 41, a music producer, tied the knot at a small ceremony in 2007 and announced they were expecting this April.

"It's a huge lifestyle change, and I take that very seriously," she said of motherhood. "Chris and I enjoy life so much. We go to Europe and sleep in."

"So, when I have the baby, I won't feel like we've missed having any fun, reckless times together, like staying up all night drinking champagne and having sex until five in the morning and not having to get up until two in the afternoon."

A little TMI there, but point well taken and agreed with.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery are now parents!

Grey's Anatomy co-star Jessica Capshaw thinks she'll do fine: "She is so on top of it, and she is so excited, and she is very sweet about it," Capshaw said.

"She is exactly the way that she should be about it, which is really excited and hopeful but at the same time really pragmatic and planning, doing research."

Congratulations to Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, who was recently accused of cheating on his pregnant wife with a teenage Bostonian named Rachel Artz.

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is pregnant. It's a wonderful thing.

Not as wonderful as that baby news? The fact that her husband, Chris Ivery, has allegedly been engaging in baby talk of his own ... with his teenage lover!

In April, Ellen Pompeo confirmed that she and Chris Ivery are expecting their first child, a daughter, later this year. But by late May, Chris had begun a torrid affair with a restaurant hostess, Rachel Artz, in his native city of Boston.

"Yes, I had sexual relations with Chris Ivery," Rachel Artz herself acknowledged, assuming she's a real person, when she spoke with Star Magazine.

"We were intimate several times."

Is Ellen Pompeo's husband, Chris Ivery, sleeping with Rachel Artz?

A rep for the Grey's Anatomy star denied the affair, but additional sources say that over the course of three months, Chris hit it with Rachel several times.

The venues? Hotels in Boston and Miami, and a private residence in Martha's Vineyard, all while Ellen was home and filming her hit series in Los Angeles.

"Chris promised Rachel he'd make her a star. That's his lure," an insider said. "Chris often took calls from Ellen in front of Rachel and talked about their baby-to-be. He didn't seem to like Ellen much when he talked about her."

"He made her seem like a diva."

A diva who pays all his bills. The Hollywood Gossip sources know Chris Ivery is a d!ck, but we never expected something like this. Obnoxiously asking for Red Sox tickets, sure. Nailing some teenager? That's another ball game.

Having just announced that she's four months pregnant with husband Chris Ivery, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo smiled and showcased the beginnings of a baby bump as she shopped in Hollywood with a friend over the weekend.

The star stopped into Joan’s on Third and looked at furniture at Cisco Home. Here's Pompeo along with her husband, who she married in 2007 ...

THE REAL McDREAMY: Patrick Dempsey may have her heart on television, but Ellen Pompeo's true, longtime love is fellow Boston-area native Chris Ivery.

The 38-year-old's character, Meredith Grey, is all set to finally marry Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy, on Thursday's Grey's Anatomy. Does Pompeo's real-life pregnancy coinciding with this event mean a McBaby will be in the works?

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her husband, music producer Chris Ivery, are going to be starting a family together, her rep, Jennifer Allen, confirms.

"It's great news," says Allen. "They're ecstatic."

The actress, 39, and Chris Ivery, 41, were married by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a low-key ceremony on her birthday in November 2007.

They got engaged on her birthday exactly a year earlier in 2006.

The couple, both natives of the Boston area, met in a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003 and began dating six months later. The rest is history.

Ellen Pompeo, who's recently been spotted shopping for baby gear around L.A., is not the only Grey's Anatomy doctor having a baby in real life.

Chyler Leigh, who plays Pompeo's half-sister on the hospital drama, and her husband, Nathan West, are expecting her third child, a girl, in May.

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.

"We're blessed," the 38-year-old Grey's Anatomy star said. She and Chris Ivery tied the knot in New York City on her birthday in November.

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.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: Celebrating their one-week anniversary!

The Grey's Anatomy star has been dating Chris Ivery, a music producer, for a long time. Both are Boston-area natives. They got engaged just as quietly on Pompeo's birthday almost exactly one year ago, then tied the knot last Friday on the eve of the actress' 38th birthday. N.Y. City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was their witness.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

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.

We were just starting to wonder about this couple. Singer, songwriter and Grade A tool John Mayer hasn't been spotted in public with his new gal pal Minka Kelly in awhile. But they returned to the spotlight this weekend for some NBA action.

Seated at a New York Knicks game, Mayer was welcomed by the Madison Square Garden scoreboard, which read "Welcome John Mayer, Recording Artist."

We personally would have had it say "Welcome Minka Kelly, star of Friday Night Lights" but we don't make these kinds of decisions. Probably for good reason.

Here's another picture of John and Minka, along with two other celebrities they sat next to - Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her fiance, Chris Ivery!

In anyone cares, the Miami Heat earned their first win of the season by beating the Isiah Thomas-led Knicks, 75-72, in what was surely a riveting contest. Not.

Ellen Pompeo, the star of Grey's Anatomy, is a big hit everywhere. But she and fiance Chris Ivery love to travel to Italy. Especially for the food.

"I go several times a year. Christopher, my fiancé, has family there and we go spend time with them whenever we get a chance," Pompeo told People.

So what's her favorite thing about Italy? "The food. I love the area of Bologna for food. I think it's really special," she said.

Her top-rated ABC series Grey's Anatomy is also a big hit and Italian fans are taken aback when they see Ellen Pompeo in real life.

"They're quite surprised to see me there," Pompeo, who turns 38 next month, said.

"They just can't believe I'm in Italy. It's out of context for them. They say 'Meredith! It's you, Meredith! Oh my God, could it be Meredith?'"

Pompeo attended National Italian American Foundation's 32nd Annual Gala in Washington, D.C., over the weekend, winning a Special Achievement award.

Less surprising is that she's no slouch when it comes to cooking Italian. Chris Ivery, like Pompeo a Boston-area native, loves her Bolognese sauce, she says of the dish that pays tribute to her favorite region.

Pompeo isn't a rush to get married despite having been engaged for nearly a year. She still hasn't started on the plans, but has thought about the kind of wedding she wants ... "a quiet, simple, private one."

Well, that's nice. Something along the lines of the nuptials between Usher and Tameka Foster, perhaps? Or Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon?
