Ellen Pompeo recently posted an adorable video of her toddler complaining about her brother and giving a solution to the problem.

Ellen Pompeo’s five-year-old daughter was both hilarious and adorable in a recent video posted by her mom on Instagram.


The “Grey’s Anatomy” actress shared a funny video of her daughter, Sienna May, over the weekend, teaching “social distancing 101.”

In the clip, the toddler complained about her three-year-old brother Eli Christopher, who has been “annoying” as he “keeps testing” Sienna. She said:

“Even when I was four, he keep testing me. Even now, I’m five, he  still testing me. Every day, he tests me.”

Pompeo explained that both the governor and her frontline health medical friends asked her to help spread the message.

When the 50-year-old mom asked the solution to her daughter’s problem, Sienna replies: “We should separate,” which comes as great advice amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Pompeo does not often post photos or videos of her children, Sienna, Eli, and Stella Luna, but on the rare occasion she does, fans are all for it.



Pompeo shared her three kids with her husband of over ten years, Chris Ivery, who is also in the entertainment industry.

Ivery is a music producer who is behind “Shash’s” “Cheers (Drink to That) and met the actress in 2003 before getting married secretly in 2007. When asked about their secret is to a happy marriage, Pompeo said:

“Just don’t try to change people. They are who they are, and they were fine when you married them, so don’t expect them to change.”

Their eldest child, Stella, was born in 2009, followed by Sienna May in 2014, via surrogacy, and Eli Christopher in 2016.


In a video posted last Thursday, the Pompeo asked her fans to “please stay home” in hopes to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pompeo explained that both the governor and her frontline health medical friends asked her to help spread the message. In the clip, she said:

“The healthcare professionals, the doctors, the nurses, anyone who works in a hospital, they’re at their wits end, and now they’re starting to die.”


Pompeo’s post comes at a time where observing self-isolation is the only way to help stop the coronavirus that has infected over one million people globally.
