Ellen Pompeo Throws Husband Birthday Bash
While her hit TV show is no stranger to feuds it was all peace and love Wednesday night for Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo—the actress threw a birthday bash for her husband, music exec Christopher Ivery.
Pompeo hosted an intimate dinner party for Ivery at Los Angeles’ One Sunset, where her costars and pals gathered for a massive food tasting and celebration.
Grey’s hunk Eric Dane showed with wife Rebecca Gayheart, as well as longtime Ivery pal Taye Diggs with wife and stage star Idina Menzel.
The 30 guests, including fellow Grey’s guy Jason Pickens, munched on oysters, truffled mac n’ cheese and a pomegranate-walnut rack of lamb.
A gauzy curtain separated the party from the rest of the crowd, where an onlooker tells Celebuzz “there was candlelight and tons of mingling. A very mellow but festive vibe.”
For dessert, Birthday Cake was the main event—a triple berry and coconut confection by Sweet Lady Jane.
Even sweeter than the cake? Pompeo donating all custom floral centerpieces to Belmont Village Senior Living Center in Burbank, CA.
Pompeo and Ivery wed just over a year ago in New York City, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg served as a witness.
