Grey’s Anatomy Star Ellen Pompeo Engaged

Ellen Pompeo, 37, and her boyfriend of nearly three years, Chris Ivery, are engaged, Pompeo's rep confirms.Ivery proposed on Friday -- which was also the actress' birthday -- with a 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond and platinum ring by Tacori. Pompeo plays Meredith Grey on the hit ABC medical dramedy Grey’s Anatomy. She has also starred in Old School and Moonlight Mile. Ivery, 38, is a music producer. The couple met in an L.A. grocery store. Though Pompeo wasn't interested in a date originally, she agreed to go out with Ivery when they bumped into each other again six months later. They discovered that they grew up 10 miles from each other outside of Boston.

  "I had to go 3,000 miles away to meet a guy who practically grew up next door," Pompeo told the Boston Herald last year. "But I guess everything comes full circle." Though the couple has not yet set a date or location for the big day, Pompeo has said, "My boyfriend and I travel to Italy quite often and I think that’s always the most romantic for us. We went to Bologna and he has family there and I think that’s our favorite place."

Here's Ellen being a bitch on Punk'd!
