Ellen Pompeo: Star In Stripes

Ellen Pompeo: Star In Stripes

A very pregnant Ellen Pompeo wears a fun striped top as she leaves her Hollywood home with husband Chris Ivery on Thursday (August 20).

The 39-year-old actress and a female friend were later seen grabbing some fro-yo from Pinkberry.

EW‘s Michael Ausiello just addressed rumors of a Mer-Der breakup on Grey’s Anatomy. He writes, “The Mer-Der relationship will be written a little lighter during the first half of the season as a result of Ellen Pompeo‘s real-life pregnancy and subsequent maternity leave. ‘I think we would be irresponsible writers if we didn’t give a woman who’s seven-months pregnant a little less time on her feet,’ maintains exec producer Krista Vernoff. ‘She’s waddling around seven-months pregnant about to push a baby out of her body. We have a responsibility to alleviate her screen time a little bit.’ That said, Vernoff insists Mer-Der are at no risk of losing their title as Seattle Grace’s reigning super couple. ‘It would be false to say that Mer and Der are no longer the focus of the series,’ she says. ‘Derek and Mer will always be a focus of the series.’”
