Adding to the adorable avalanche of celebrity babies making their entrance over the Summer holidays, Grey’s fave Ellen Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery have recently welcomed a third child.

A new guy

Ellen and her music producer hubby Chris were apparently spotted hiking with three kids – instead of the usual two – in California a couple of days ago.

The star later took to Instagram to confirm that the surprise newborn Chris was carrying was indeed the pair’s latest addition.

“❤️ Eli Christopher ❤️ Chris Ivery just fell a notch… I’ve got a new guy,” Ellen posted alongside an image of now-dad-of-three snuggling baby Eli.

A rep told Us Weekly that “Family and baby are all doing great.”

The little boy looks to be a couple of months old, but the couple are keeping details of his birth to themselves at the moment – a growing and sensible trend among famous folk, these days.

Ellen and Chris met in 2003 in a grocery store and married in 2007.

They are parents to tiny Eli,  7-year-old Stella and 2-year-old Sienna (who was born with the assistance of a surrogate.)



Growing brood

The mum-of-three spoke about her surrogacy experience on Jimmy Kimmel Live two months after Sienna’s birth.

“This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous,” she said.

“I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo.”


Meant to be

“I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy and they inseminated her,” the Grey’s Anatomy star told Kimmel.

“And then we held hands and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”

A huge congrats to Ellen, Chris, Sienna and Stella on the latest addition to their gang!

Welcome Eli!
