The news came as a surprise to everyone as she had never announced that they were expecting. It seems that Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s anatomy was aware about the pregnancy and had helped in keeping it under the covers. The baby was born only a few days ago. It was only when Ellen Pompeo posted the pictures, the news went out.
Ellen Pompeo’s first baby was not quite a secret. She had given interviews about it including one with the magazine, Allure before giving birth.
Ellen Pompeo had also recently announced her desire to end her career with Grey’s Anatomy. She said that she lacks the strong desire to act once the medical drama comes to an end. With the news of the baby being out, people are now speculating if the second child has brought the thoughts of quitting acting. However, she did admit that she wanted to challenge herself and acting wasn’t fulfilling that desire.
