Little Eli is getting so big! Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo recently stepped out with her baby boy to attend the Baby2Baby at Au Fudge event on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, in Los Angeles. Ellen might be the star of the hit medical drama, but we couldn’t take our eyes off her son.
Guests participated in activities including French music classes, kids’ workshops, and a themed photo booth. Watch the video below to Ellen and Eli at the cute event!
So sweet! Eli looks just like his mama too. Ellen introduced her son, Eli, to the world in December 2016. She welcomed him via a surrogate with her husband, Chris Ivery. The couple also shares daughters, Stella, 8, and Sienna, 3. Ellen has been outspoken about working with a surrogate (Sienna was also born via a surrogate mother) in order to have children.
“This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous,” she said after welcoming her second daughter.
“I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo. I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy, and they inseminated her,” Ellen continued. “And then we held hands, and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out, and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”
We honestly can’t get enough of Ellen’s family. We hope she makes many more appearances with her beautiful family soon!
