Ellen Pompeo, Chris Ivery Engaged!

at . Comments
Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, her boyfriend of nearly three years, are officially engaged, Us Weekly reports.

Ivery, 38, proposed on Friday -- which was Pompeo's 37th birthday -- with a 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond and platinum ring by Tacori.

That's quite the birthday gift, but their relationship is laid-back. Chris popped the question after breakfast at home, and following that, he and Ellen proceeded to celebrate with a fairly low-key day.

"We had a great day," Pompeo told People. "We walked on the beach, then we came home, took a shower and went out for sushi. Then we laid on the couch with the dogs and watched TV."

Pompeo has risen to fame as Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy. She has also starred in various movies, including Old School and Moonlight Mile. Ivery is a music producer she met in an L.A. grocery store, and though Pompeo wasn't interested in a date originally, she agreed to go out with Ivery when they bumped into each other again six months later.

That's when they discovered that they grew up 10 miles from each other outside of Boston and that Chris knew Ellen's father.

"I had to go 3,000 miles away to meet a guy who practically grew up next door," Pompeo told the Boston Herald last year. "But I guess everything comes full circle."

Although the couple has not yet set a date or location for the big day, the romantic European destination of Italy might be a good guess.

"My boyfriend and I travel to Italy quite often and I think that’s always the most romantic for us," Pompeo told Us earlier this year. "We went to Bologna and he has family there and I think that’s our favorite place."

Congratulations to the happy couple! It's great that Ellen is happy with her real-life McDreamy. Below is a picture a fan sent us of the two of them taken on the day of their engagement!

is everybody crazy? you are all so stupid, we are all the same, we all have bones and blood and feelings. you should be the ones dying not ellen´s baby, I SERIOUSLY HATE THIS KIND OF PERSON


My grandpa lacy is a good man. I have forgave him for putting his old coal dusted finger in my vagina past the second knuckle. If i were to sleep with a nigger like ellen does grandpa would cram notelling what into my anal cavity.


I am Lacy ex-wife. He abews me all the time and made me watch while he had sex with our grandawter Kelcie. He are evil man with a bible.


I hope that people realize that not all caucasians are as narrow minded and obnoxious as some of these comments by racists on this thread make us seem. This is disgusting to find in this day and age.


WTF! Who the hell are you?? You are a disgusting human being.


Oh my Lord, Then I read into Reverend Lacy's comments. Please don't tell me you buy into her or (it's) lectures. That is not a person whom speaks out of the scriptures, so why buy into it. I'm 48 and am white, and am brought up to no the difference between a God fearing person and one whom hears in satan's tone. That for me is someone you don't wish to go back and forth with, even on this Blog. He or She would not talk like that face to face, but hide themselves. For they would be slain like the swine before all our races. Peace and Blessings.


There is no need to call one another out, let God sort them out in the end. Stick by your belief's and let the others fall as they may. I've read alot of these comments. From one to the other, but in the end, who committed adultery, got what they deserved. If Nichole went that route, well she wandered into the realm of today's society of which there is no return when if dead, you are hereby condemed.She probably didn't confess her sin. Well maybe O.J does given his chances, if that is the case. My point is this, stick with marriage, it's what is commanded of us. If you fool around, it will haunt you to your dying breath. As for the Goldman's, you'll have your day, you hypocrites.


im lacy's grandson and he doesnt even know how to turn a CPU on, its realyl easy to get on ehre and post someones name because you dont have to sign-up, just post a name and email and be done with it well dont take any of this to heart because its not him its some prick starting shit, but dont worry the FBI has already been contacted, weather anything will get done or not i dunno, but whatever just wanted you to know that he doenst even know his name is on here, and hes not a reverend either lol hes a old regular baptist preacher but far from a reverend lmao so chill out because your getting amd at the wrong person, but if you still feel sore about it then its on you


Ok i am lacy walters daughter, this is not my dad, these people doing as from christian chat 6 on yahoo.....please do not listen to this bull..these people are sick in the head..and the siyte owners have been contacted...


lmao @ people praying she dies because she found LOVE...the one small but ever so important thing that none of these ignorant asses have ever come close to. i pray a black women opens your eyes haha, i think thats the beauty of life, knowing we are all different(meaning each one of us) but yet so similar. it surprises me alot that people dont realize that we are all different forms of the same mold, we all have the same parts inside and out, just some peoples ancestors lived closer to the equator than others, so skin shade comes into play there.. its the internet so someone must show hatred i guess, but its just baffling still. i hope you people wake up, but i highly doubt you do, so stay away from the internet and go to a klan rally or actually have the balls to express your terrible views in public for once. have a nice day all!


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
