Ellen Pompeo Talks Baby Sienna on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Video)

Ellen Pompeo waves to photographers while leaving the studio after taping an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (October 2) in Hollywood.

The 44-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress surprised the world that day by revealing she had welcomed a baby daughter named Sienna May two months ago via a surrogate.

“This baby was born via surrogate so I felt an obligation to keep the surrogate’s privacy. That was of utmost importance to me,” Ellen said. “I was present for the insemination. I held her hand.”

“So medically, [my husband] Chris Ivery has to do what he has to do and provide what he has to provide. And then I had to provide something as well, you know,” Ellen added about the surrogacy process. “I had to do something as well. They have to retrieve the egg and then they put it together in a dish. Then they make the embryo and then they insert the embryo into the woman who will carry the child.”

FYI: Ellen is wearing Melissa Kay Jewelry earrings on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

    I always wonder what it’s like for the surrogate. Do they get the appreciation they deserve? What kind of compensation do they receive for going through the ordeal of a pregnancy and childbirth for another family? What motivation do they have for going through all that?

    She looks so hot and gorgeous! She can rock any outfit.

    So happy for her :)

    @The other woman:

    What kind of compensation? Monetary. The other stuff depends on the personalities of the individual families, obviously. Ellen & Chris seem very appreciative and I’m sure all parties are happy.
