In surprise news Ellen Pompeo and hubby Chris Ivery announced the arrival of daughter Sienna May Ivery via WhoSay on Thursday afternoon.

The announcement has come as a shock as no one knew they were expecting. The 44 year old Grey’s Anatomy star shared a picture across Instagram and Twitter with the words “Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world. We love you more than words can say“.

Ellen also shared via twitter that baby Sienna had arrived via a surrogate:
