Not Even the Biggest ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Fans Know How Ellen Pompeo Met Her Husband Chris Ivery – GoodHousekeeping.com

Grey's Anatomy
While Meredith Grey has been pretty open about her love life at Seattle Grace over the years, the same can't be said for the actress who plays her. Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is actually pretty hush-hush about her real-life McDreamy, a.k.a. her husband, Chris Ivery, who she has been married to since 2007. But while a lot has been kept under wraps over the years, we do know that Ellen and Chris (who is a music producer) met at a grocery store in Los Angeles back in 2003. After building a friendship for six months, the two decided to try dating. It was then that they discovered that they were both Bostonites. "We were six degrees our whole lives, so I feel like we were sort of meant to be, ” she explained to People in 2006. "We’ll get married eventually, secretly.” In 2007, Ellen and Chris did just that. .


Wanting a small, quiet affair, the pair tied the knot at City Hall in New York City. New York City Mayor at the time Michael Bloomberg reportedly served as their officiant. "We flew out on a red-eye Thursday night. Friday morning, we woke up, went to City Hall, had the wedding really quick, and then we were to Lupa for lunch after, " Ellen explained on Live with Kelly and Ryan in 2017. Getty Since then, the couple have been pretty solid. In terms of what their relationship is like, Ellen once said that the two like to hang out a lot at home together. “We go out to dinner sometimes, but date nights really kind of happen inside at home. And actually, we both go to bed pretty early, so we do a lot of lunch dates, too.” More importantly, Ellen has said that Chris is a very "secure" guy, who never felt threatened, even when her work on Grey's involved some steamy scenes with McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey). “My husband is a fantastic guy, and very, very secure, ” Ellen told Queen Latifah in 2013. .
