McBaby on board!

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo worked out at her local gym and gave celebrity baby fans a glimpse of her cute pregnant belly in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The 39-year-old is doing what she can to stay healthy and in shape as she prepares to welcome her first child with her awesome husband, Chris Ivery ...

Grey’s Anatomy's shocking Season Five finale left the show's fans with unanswered questions and has sparked many debates as we look toward next season.

Will Meredith be pregnant too? Will Ellen's baby bump be concealed like the show did with Chyler Leigh's? Will Pompeo take a leave of absence from Grey's?

We'll have to wait and see, but we're happy for Ellen and Chris.

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, who recently announced she and husband Chris Ivery are expecting, showed off the beginnings of a baby bump - and her two adorable pet poodles Valentino and Gigi - while visiting a friend in Hollywood.

She's pretty cute as pregnant people go ...

How Ellen's pregnancy will be written into Grey's Anatomy, if it is at all, remains to be seen. Will Dr. Meredith Grey become pregnant also? Will the actress take a leave of absence? Will the producers use camera tricks or other ploys?

The latter appears to be the producers' choice for Pompeo's pregnant co-star Chyler Leigh, whose character, Lexie, was nervously stuffing her face last episode.

Such a technique has also been pioneered on How I Met Your Mother, while Gossip Girl opts for the neck-up and overdressed approach for Kelly Rutherford.

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.

Yesterday, both Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo turned a year wiser. How cool is that? Airport-brawling, Zac Efron-loving Nikki Blonsky also had a birthday.

Today, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo celebrates both a birthday and a wedding anniversary, while her co-star Eric Dane blew out the candles yesterday.

Reality TV waste of space Shayne Lamas surely got lucky Sunday, while Simon Monjack surely has something special planned for Brittany Murphy this evening.

Here's a little tribute to the birthday boys and girls of November 9-10. Click to enlarge, and check out our calendar of celebrity birthdays to see who's up next!

These are nothing like the Aubrey O'Day quotes we posted yesterday. Ellen Pompeo doesn't talk about pleasuring herself or BFF Jenna Jameson.

But the Grey's Anatomy star did open up to Allure about the future, as well as her marriage to Chris Ivery and the train wreck that is Meredith.

On (sort of) wanting kinds with husband Chris Ivery: "We enjoy our life so much. We go to Europe and sleep in. So when I have the baby, I won't feel like we've missed 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. But I've got to get on it, because the clock is ticking."

Ellen Pompeo in Allure

On getting married in secret: "I didn't wear a wedding ring that night because I didn't want it to leak out," Pompeo tells Allure. "My manager went to Cartier and bought two bands so we would have something to exchange at the ceremony."

On her love of fashion: "I get to dress up all the time," Pompeo says. "I completely understand women wanting a wedding, because most people don't get to dress up in gorgeous dresses and have their hair and makeup done. I, however, am fortunate enough that I get to put on beautiful dresses and makeup and jewels all the time."

On TV alter ego Meredith Grey: "People love to watch a train wreck, I suppose... There are other fish in the sea. Plenty. Just move on."

It's gonna be hard to top Sarah Palin and Tina Fey on the celeb look-alike front, although we think there's at least a slight Ellen Pompeo-Carla Bruni resemblance!

Tall, thin and fair-skinned, the model / singer / wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy could pass for the Grey's Anatomy actress if you ask us. See if you agree:

No Promises

Another similarity: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, 40, and Ellen Pompeo, 38, both got married within the last year (Ellen to her longtime boyfriend, music producer Chris Ivery)!

If Grey's Anatomy has any fans left, tonight's two-hour fourth season finale is supposedly the night you've been waiting for!

Just kidding. The show still draws millions of loyal viewers. Yet it's been a long time since something interesting happened on it.

Patrick Dempsey Style

Well, that supposedly changes tonight. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are going to be getting together for good.

We know this because the show's own creator and producer, Shonda Rhimes, has already said so publicly. We don't get it either.

Anyway, here's a photo from tonight's show. Meredith is holding what looks like champagne, ready to celebrate ... something.

More than three years later, will a terrific episode finally bring Meredith and Derek together - or will the hit medical drama jump the shark for good?

Also, Alex and Izzie may or may not get together, and there's another love triangle involving possible girl-on-girl action. Gotta love Grey's Anatomy!

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.

Ellen and Chris Pic

"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.
