Full Story

Stella Luna came into the world on September 15, 2009, and her parents, Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, have been doting on her ever since. In a 2010 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Pompeo shared that Ivery had a penchant for dressing their daughter up in matching outfits that resembled his own. The couple’s first child, Stella quickly became the center of their world, and Ivery’s adorable habit only added to the joy of her arrival.

In a 2015 interview on the same show, Pompeo revealed her daughter’s aspirations. Stella Luna had developed a fascination with medicine after spending time on the set of her mother’s hit TV series, “Grey’s Anatomy,” and declared that she wanted to become an emergency room doctor when she grew up. During her visits to the set, the curious youngster gravitated towards the medical props and artificial organs, no doubt trying to get a feel for the future career she envisioned for herself.

Fast forward to 2023, and Stella Luna has just discovered her mother’s popular show. Speaking during an interview for Variety Actors on Actors, Pompeo revealed that Stella’s sixth grade class had all seen the series, leaving her feeling like the odd one out. To remedy the situation, Pompeo agreed to watch the show with her daughter over the summer. However, the experience proved to be too much for the “Grey’s Anatomy” star, as they plowed through episode after episode, jokingly admitting she didn’t have the “stamina” for it.

From dressed-up baby to aspiring doctor and now budding “Grey’s Anatomy” fan, Stella Luna has no doubt brought heaps of joy and laughter to Pompeo and Ivery’s lives. It’s clear that the little girl has a strong-willed personality and isn’t afraid to pursue her passions, even if it means taking on challenging career goals or revisiting her mother’s iconic TV show.
