Chris Ivery – Wiki, Children and All About Ellen Pompeo’s Husband

Thanks to her $20 million annual contract signed with ABC in 2017 for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo has joined the league of the highest-paid TV actors in the world and so, she is correspondingly well-known. But how much do people know about her husband of over 12 years Chris Ivery?

In this post, we bring you top highlights and details on Chris. What’s his life like before and after marrying the over-the-top wealthy actress? How stable has their relationship been? Find interesting facts about the celebrity husband below.

Who is Chris Ivery?

Chris was born on February 7, 1967, in Cambridge Massachusetts, less than 5 miles from where his future wife Ellen would be born about two years later in Everett. We have very little detail about Chris’ childhood, family background and basic education history. However, his criminal past is well known even to his wife. From his years as a teenager, he had begun to pile up criminal records through crimes like credit-card theft, drug offences, forgery, and more. He was convicted for more than 10 times and served prison sentences a couple of times.

Fortunately, Chris Ivery was able to overcome his criminal tendencies. He began to rechannel his mental energies to productive ventures like school studies. This proved to be a big deal as the ex-criminal ended up getting enrolled in the prestigious Harvard University, although we do not yet have the details on the exact course of study that he pursued at Harvard.

As per his career, Chris is mainly known as a record producer. But rather than having production credits attached to his name in the media, he is better known in the showbiz realms for his work in other sectors. That is probably because production jobs are generally behind-the-scene affairs that hardly receive public acclaims. He generally receives more recognition for writing the lyrics of the hit song Cheers (Drink To That) which was featured in the episode ‘Hell On Earth’ in the NBC musical drama TV series Smash in 2012. He is also remembered for having once made a guest appearance at an episode of the CBS-distributed television news magazine, Entertainment Online. Chris has also been seen in an episode of MTV’s prank reality show Punk’d where he pranked his wife.

Chris Ivery and his wife Ellen were born in different towns in the state of Massachusetts (Cambridge and Everett) but both of them grew up in the city of Boston. It was in that city that they met for the first time at a grocery store in 2003. As they began to talk, they discovered they shared a lot in common including the fact that they support the same basketball team – Boston Celtics. Chris’ wife Ellen Pompeo is a highly respected actress who has acting credits across film, TV and music videos. She is certainly most famous for her lead role as Dr. Meredith Grey on ABC’s medical drama TV series, Grey’s Anatomy. Since March 2015 that the series started airing, she has appeared in over 340 episodes and still counting. As mentioned before, with her earning $20 million annually since 2017 for the role, Chris’ wife has become one of the highest-earning actors in the industry.

Who Are His Children?

After that first meeting between Chris Ivery and Ellen Pompeo in 2003, they began dating not long after that which eventually resulted in them getting married on November 9, 2007. So far, their union has been blessed with three kids. They first welcomed a baby girl named Stella Luna on September 15, 2009. In early October 2014, although the couple probably wanted it to be a secret, news filtered in that Chris and his wife welcomed a second daughter via gestational surrogacy. The baby girl was eventually named Sienna May. Then, lastly, the couple had a baby boy named Eli Christopher on December 29, 2016.
