Everything is coming up babies.
Our favorite dark and twisty star of ABC's Grey's Anatomy
, Ellen Pompeo, has just announced that she is pregnant with her first child.
Pompeo's rep, Jennifer Allen, confirmed to People
that Ellen Pompeo, 39, and her husband Chris Ivery, 41, are "ecstatic" to be starting a family together.
This certainly is happy news for the couple, and it begs the question: with Meredith and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) newly engaged, will the powers that be on Grey's Anatomy
write in a pregnancy storyline for the marquee couple? Perhaps with a baby on board, Meredith and Derek will have to think seriously about getting started on building the dream house.
Ellen Pompeo isn't the only expecting mom on the Grey's Anatomy
set. Pompeo's costar who plays her half-sister, Chyler Leigh, is expecting her third child, a girl, in May.
