Ellen Pompeo Engaged
Ellen Pompeo, the star of TV's "Grey's Anatomy" will marry her real-life McDreamy, record producer Chris Ivery. The actress, whose character Meredith resisted the charms of resident male slut Dr. Mark "McSteamy" Sloan to end up in the arms of the fictional McDreamy in last week's episode, celebrated her 37th birthday on Friday.
38-year old Ivery proposed to Pompeo with a 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond and platinum Tacori ring.
The two both grew up outside of Boston, but had not known each other before they began dating in 2003.
Ivery spent 14 months in federal prison for postal theft and credit card fraud in 1994.
No wedding date has been set.
