‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 11: Ellen Pompeo, husband Chris Ivery welcome daughter via surrogate

More news -Mrs. Carter: How about this as a celebrity baby surprise?

While she has been preparing for the upcoming 11th season of “Grey’s Anatomy” and also getting more and more into producing, actress Ellen Pompeo has been keeping one thing a surprise about her family: There was a new addition on the way! With that being said, the news finally came out today that she and Chris Ivery have welcomed a new baby girl named Sienna May. She actually welcomed the child a few weeks ago, but has been able to enjoy having her in the family without suspicion or interruption from the press.

Pompeo first confirmed the news in a post on Twitter, where she had the following to say:

“Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world. We love you more than words can say … Sienna was born via surrogate & I would like to thank my whole @ShondalandTV family for helping us enjoy these first few weeks privately.”

Now that we have knowledge of this news, massive congratulations have to go out to both parties! We also wonder more than ever how in the world Pompeo is able to do as much as she does in a day, since being a mother plus an extremely long “Grey’s Anatomy” day plus producing plus also being a wife is a mouthful. Maybe she has taken some vampire powers from The CW and works through the night now, as well.

Of course, we’ll be back later with more when it comes to tonight’s “Grey’s Anatomy” season 11 episode, including a preview for what is coming up down the road. You can find all of that now over at the link here.
