Ellen Pompeo Talks Husband Chris Ivery’s Reaction to Her Chemistry With Patrick Dempsey (VIDEO)
Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey’s Meredith and Derek are the ultimate on-screen couple — not only do they look absolutely gorgeous together, but they have the most amazing chemistry. We’ve loved everything about watching them fall in love on Grey’s Anatomy, from that first drunken hook-up to the post-it wedding and everything in between.
That being said, doesn’t Ellen’s real life husband, Chris Ivery, get a little jealous?
“My husband is a fantastic guy, and very, very secure,” Ellen said when she sat down with Queen Latifah to talk everything Grey’s. “I think that’s probably why I’m so into him — because he’s got so much swag. He’s just so secure that nothing shakes him. If it did shake him, I wouldn’t know.”
Chris must be really good at hiding it then, because we’d assume even the most secure guy out there could be intimidated by the amazing piece of man that is Patrick Dempsey, right?
“In the beginning, I started dating him before the show,” Ellen continued. “So it was new — he had never dated an actress before who was doing this kind of thing, so I didn’t know how he would react. [My scenes with Patrick ] in the beginning of the show — it was intense.”
But lucky for Ellen, Chris was totally able to handle it — and how cute is Ellen, obviously still so in love with someone she’s been with for over ten years. So sweet!
Also, we are dying at how truly adorable Ellen is altogether. Please be our best friend!
