Last year, She revealed the reason for her actions on her wedding day.

Ellen revealed that she was really desperate to keep her privacy at that point in her life and just did not want anybody to compromise that.


The wedding took place during the fourth season of Pompeo's hit Grey's Anatomy, which meant she had reached peak-celebrity status.


She said while talking to the American talk show host, Kelly Ripa

'We got married here in City Hall and Mayor Bloomberg was our officiator, yeah, it was very cool. It was also very top-secret. At that point, I was really dying for privacy. So 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 went to a waffle lunch after'

The newlyweds finished off the weekend with a Knicks game before flying home to California.

Today, the couple, Ivery and Ellen have three children together, Stella, Sienna, and Eli.
