Ellen Pompeo reveals first picture of daughter on "Ellen DeGeneres"

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ellen Pompeo became a first time mom late last year, and she shared the first public picture of her daughter during a taping of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star showed off a picture of baby Stella Luna being held by her father, Pompeo’s husband, Chris Ivery.

“This is precious,” DeGeneres said after the actress showed off the photo of the beautiful baby girl, who was dressed in gingham and jeans, just like her doting dad.

“Chris – he loves dressing her up like him,” Pompeo explained of her husband. “He goes out and buys her clothes that look like his clothes.”

Pompeo, who plays Patrick Dempsey’s post-it wife, Meredith Grey, on the ABC drama, said she manages to work and care for her little one with some help.

“I have an amazing baby nurse,” Pompeo said. “I couldn’t do it without her.”

The episode featuring Pompeo, will air on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, February 3.
