ELLEN POMPEO

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.
