Expectant Ellen Pompeo is picture of happiness on sports date with husband

by hellomagazine.com Being pregnant seems to suit Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo. The actress was positively glowing as she took in a basketball game with her husband Chris Ivery. And the beginnings of a baby bump were clearly visible beneath her oversize white sleeveless top.

Ellen - who plays Meredith Grey in the medical drama - met music producer Chris in a grocery store when they were both shopping in the fruit and veg section for melons. They became engaged in 2006 on her November 10 birthday and tied the knot exactly a year later.

The couple are expecting their first child later this year. Fans of the popular programme – the fifth season of which is currently showing in the UK - are waiting to see if its writers will incorporate 38-year-old Ellen's pregnancy into the script.

With filming of season six due to begin late this summer there have been reports a baby could feature in the relationship between Ellen's character and her love interest Derek Shepherd, aka Dr McDreamy, played by Patrick Dempsey.
