The two, who married in 2007, are also parents to Stella, 7, and Sienna, 2.
Though she gave birth to Stella, she enlisted the help of a surrogate for Sienna. Back in 2014, Pompeo opened up about the surrogacy process, telling Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, "This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone's child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her — she who will remain anonymous.”
Ellen continued, "I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo. I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy, and they inseminated her. And then we held hands, and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out, and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”
