Meet the 'Grey's Anatomy' Cast's Real Life Spouses
For fifteen seasons the hit television medical drama, "Grey's Anatomy" kept fans on the edge of their seats with unexpected plot twists, while the actors lead normal lives with their real-life spouses.
Starring as Meredith Grey in the hit medical drama, Ellen found the onscreen love of her life. In real life, Ellen sees her marriage to the music producer Chris Ivery as "meant to be."
The couple met in a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003 while shopping and began dating six months later, just to find out that they grew up living minutes away from each other near Boston.
When Ellen and Chris got married in 2007, they did so in secret. Mayor Michael Bloomberg officiated their New York City Hall ceremony with the First Deputy Mayor, Patricia Harris as a witness.
Since then they grew to a family of five after welcoming their firstborn, Stella Luna in 2009, followed by Sienna May in 2014, and lastly their son, Eli Christopher, born in 2016.
The blond beauty, Katherine Heigl and her husband, Josh Kelley met when she appeared as his love interest in his 2005 music video "Only You." The couple got engaged in June 2006 after Katherine hinted in that direction and decided to tie the knot a year and a half later.
Josh and Katherine got married at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City Utah on December 23, 2007, and started expanding their family two years later.
In 2009, the couple adopted Naleigh from South Korea, followed by the adoption of Adelaide in Louisiana in 2012. Four years later, Katherine gave birth to their biological son, Joshua Jr.
For a good portion of his time on "Grey's Anatomy," T.R. starred as the best friend and lover (for a short time), of Dr. Izzie Stevens, played by Katherine Heigl.
While T.R. played the character of the straight Dr. George O'Malley on the show, he came out of the closet in 2007, two years before he left the show.
The end of his time on Grey's Anatomy marked a new beginning for the actor as he met Patrick Leahy soon after at a dinner party thrown by mutual friends in New York.
T.R. and the writer/ballet dancer decided to get married in 2013, and the actor took the weekend off from his off-Broadway starring in "Romeo and Juliet" in October that year to tie the knot in upstate New York.
While Justin plays the suave Dr. Ale Karev on "Grey's Anatomy," he is very much the family man in real life. Married to the model Keisha Chambers since 1993. Soon after, the couple started building their family to include five children, Isabella, the twins Kaila and Maya, Eva, and Jackson.
Since then, the couple moved from New York City to Los Angeles, where they wouldn't mind adding another child to the family, even with Jackson already in his teens.
JAMES PICKENS JR.
Married to the former singer, Gina Taylor since 1994, James helped Gina realize her dream of becoming a restauranteur in 2015.

The couple announced their separation in 2005 and finalized their divorce in 2007. Despite being a public figure, Sandra prefers keeping her personal life out of the media and never publicly spoke out about her split from Alexander.
