Ellen Pompeo, the actress who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy, is pregnant with her and husband Chris Ivery's first child.
The 39-year-old actress (yes, she's really 39) has shown off her baby-bump, which has gossip rags around the country going crazy. But the unfortunate thing for these publications is that Ivery and Pompeo have kept their relationship out of the tabloids and very low-key since marrying in 2007.
The thing I find interesting, though, is how this will be written into Grey's Anatomy and how the story set up for next season of the popular ABC show. Dr. Derek Shepherd, played by Patrick Dempsey, finally proposed to Meredith this season, so will a baby be in their future?Be sure to tune in to Grey's this Thursday.
