Ellen Pompeo Pregnant, Expecting First Baby with Husband Chris Ivery

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. —  Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery have gone from shopping for produce to starting a family.

The "Grey's Anatomy" star is pregnant and expecting her first baby with her music producer husband, a rep for the actress confirmed to People.

"They're ecstatic," Pompeo's rep told the mag.

Pompeo, 39, and Ivery, 41, first met at a Whole Foods Market in 2003 after being introduced through mutual friends. They started dating six months later and were married in a low-key ceremony four years later that was presided over by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Pompeo previously spoke out on her wishes to settle in and get pregnant.

"It's a huge lifestyle change, and I take that very seriously," she told Allure last October.

"We enjoy our life so much," she continued. "We go to Europe and sleep in. So when I have the baby, I won't feel like we've missed any fun, reckless times together, like staying up all night drinking champagne and having sex until five in the morning and not having to get up until two in the afternoon. But I've got to get on it, because the clock is ticking."
