Grey’s Anatomy Star Ellen Pompeo Reveals Her Secret to Marital Bliss

How much do you know about Ellen Pompeo’s marriage? She is famous for her role in the medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. Still, unlike her character Meredith Grey who is okay with talking about her relationships, the actress has mostly kept mum about her marriage.

It’s no secret that the 50-year-old celebrity is married to Chris Ivery, but we bet there are still things you may not know about this extremely private couple.

Grocery Shop Meeting

When we ask people how they crossed paths with their better half, you would expect to hear sort of a sweet, mushy story. For Ellen and Chris, they don’t have a shocking backstory nor a scenic background when they first met.


The pair first at a grocery store in Los Angeles in 2003. Although it wasn’t a love-at-first-sight moment, the two connected instantly after learning that they both come from Boston. This led to the start of a beautiful friendship that later turned into romance.

They love staying indoors

Six months into the friendship and they started dating. In an interview, one of the highest-paid actresses admitted she did have that feeling that she and Chris will eventually tie the knot secretly.


Her hunch proved to be true when they exchange vows in 2007 but made sure that there was no fanfare surrounding the event. They celebrated their wedding with only a few people present in a small, intimate affair.

They flew to New York City and made their love official in the City Hall. They jetted for a vacation, perhaps for a honeymoon, later returning to California to begin their new life as a married couple.

They make rare appearances on the red carpet

The secret marriage speaks a lot about how they want to remain low-key despite Ellen being the lead star of the long-running show that talks about the lives of surgeons and interns. While they value privacy, they do make rare appearances now and then, thereby giving their fans a peek into their relationship.


The celebrity also seldom talks about her personal life, but in an interview, Ellen gave us an idea about their romance, sharing they are homebodies.

Although they go out for dinners at times, most date nights happen at their abode. That’s not all; they also have a lot of lunch dates because they both go to bed early.

Even though Ellen films steamy scenes with onscreen partners, Chris does not get jealous

In a separate interview, Ellen gushed over her husband, praising him for being secure in his relationship when asked if Chris gets jealous of steamy scenes she shoots.
