Allen shared a picture of them wearing huge smiles as they beamed at the camera. While the shot was not too clear, Pompeo looked great in her make-up free face and bangs. Allen did not have much to say in the caption which read:

"Happy Birthday, G! ✨??."


Fans of Allen and lovers of Pompeo took to the comments section to also wish the star a happy birthday, with most of them expressing that she is a great actor who embodies her role on "Grey's Anatomy" well.

While it is not clear how things are going to turn out and if the show would be continued, Pompeo is excited at the prospect of moving on

Lovers of the show know Pompeo for embodying the role of Dr. Meredith Grey since the inception of the series in 2006. 14 years later, they are still stunned at the apt delivery she gives on the show.


With more than 360 episodes, "Grey's Anatomy" has been a long-standing favorite for viewers, and there have been talks about the show coming to an end this year.

In a chat with Variety Magazine, Pompeo expressed that although the exact time the show would end is not known, the latest season being season 17, could be the last.


While it is not clear how things are going to turn out and if the show would be continued, Pompeo is excited at the prospect of moving on and doing something else for herself as she has been with the show for a long time.

Prior to being on "Grey's Anatomy," Pompeo had worked on other movies and series such as "Coming Soon," "Daredevil," and "Old School," among others. She also played the role of "Jenna Weber" on "Law and Order."

Although her acting accolades are known, Pompeo lives a relatively private life and loves to keep her children out of the spotlight. Married to her husband, music producer Chris Ivery, the pair has three children: two daughters, Stella and Sienna, and a son Eli.
