A big part of the series is her on-screen relationship.

And while Meredith has a turbulent love life, Ellen’s dating life is a lot more stable. 

Who is Ellen Pompeo’s husband?

Unlike many actors, Ellen didn’t meet her husband on the set of a TV show. 

In fact, Pompeo bumped into her then-future husband Chris Ivery at a local grocery store in 2003. 

The two were together from 2003 to 2007 and then decided to get married.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery have three gorgeous children.

They welcomed their first daughter Stella Pompeo Ivery in 2009.

After having a really hard time conceiving after having the first baby, the two turned to surrogacy for help and that’s how they welcomed their second daughter Sienna May Pompeo Ivery in 2014.

Finally, the couple expanded one more time in 2016, after Ellen had a baby boy Eli Christopher.

The couple seems to have no problems in their marriage since they’ve been happily married for 15 years!
