Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy made a rare appearance at the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Women’s Show in Italy with her husband Chris Ivery and their children. The five-person family was also photographed during the prestigious couture event. Pompeo and Ivery were seen with their three children, Stella Luna (12), Sienna May (7), and Eli Christopher (5). Stella and Sienna donned outfits for the fashion event. Meanwhile, Pompeo, Ivery, and their son Eli were dressed formally.

Pompeo also uploaded photos from their vacation to Sicily, Italy, with her husband and children. Some of the shots seem to have been created in partnership with Dolce & Gabbana since the Italian luxury fashion label was tagged in all of them.

All About Ellen Pompeo’s spouse Chris Ivery

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery (both 55) met at a grocery store in Los Angeles, California, in 2003, according to PEOPLE Magazine. The pair married in 2007 after dating for a few years. Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery, the couple’s first child, was born two years later. In 2014, the couple decided to have another child via surrogacy. Later that month, Pompeo announced the birth of their second child, Sienna May Pompeo Ivery. Meanwhile, in 2016, their third child, boy Eli Christopher Pompeo Ivery, was born.

Chris Ivery, unlike his wife Ellen Pompeo, is not involved in any Hollywood ventures. He is said to be a record producer and composer who has been doing so for about 26 years. Ivery is best recognized as a songwriter for co-writing Rihanna’s 2011 single, Cheers (Drink to That). Ivery, on the other hand, has just entered the fashion market.

Chris Ivery is the Chief Executive Lifestyle Marketing of the Italian sportswear company Sergio Tacchini, according to his LinkedIn page. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ivery approached the company and collaborated with them to relaunch the famed label in Los Angeles. This gave birth to Ivery’s own line, STLA. Ellen Pompeo praised her husband at the time, telling the publication:

“To change occupations at the age of 50… He had the thought one day. We were sitting around talking when he said, ‘What happened to Tacchini?’ It had become legendary. ScHoolboy Q, Jay-Z, Pusha T, and others all rap about it. ‘Where has the brand gone?’ He then went in search of it. He traveled to Italy and said, ‘Listen, I want to bring this back.’ This brand is popular among Americans. ‘I have some ideas.’ These are his ideas that have come to fruition. It’s the most wonderful thing I’ve ever seen.”


Ivery has been an executive for the brand since September 2019 and is likely to own a portion of the company. The 55-year-old entrepreneur also advertises the company on Instagram, where he has over 12,000 followers.

What did Ellen Pompeo have to say about her husband Chris Ivery’s business?

“Listen, it’s incredible. It’s inspiring to change occupations at the age of 50. He’s worked in the music industry for 25 years and changed jobs at the age of 50. And he annihilated it. I mean, you really nailed it. It’s incredible! So, if you feel stuck in your career, you can change it at any age.”

Pompeo said in the same interview that her spouse does not watch Grey’s Anatomy because of the actors’ love scenes. At the time, Ivery said,

“I wouldn’t say I’m envious; I’m quite secure, but it’s weird.”

Despite his marriage to a high-profile celebrity such as Ellen Pompeo, nothing is known about Chris Ivery. The entrepreneur has spent most of his time avoiding media attention, so their recent public appearance as a family was unusual.
