Babe’s Anatomy (*GONG*): Ellen Pompeo Has Baby Girl


Babe’s Anatomy (*GONG*): Ellen Pompeo Has Baby Girl

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, 39, and husband Chris Ivery, 40, have welcomed a daughter, reports People.

The tabloids were, um, really on top of this story — the baby was born more than a week ago, on Sept. 15, in Los Angeles.

Thankfully, there is nary a “Mc” to be found in the baby’s name, which is Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery.  Sadly, however, the girl will have a tough time capitalizing on her name, as “Stella Luna” is already the name of a shoe collection, restaurant and book.

And, really, isn’t that what matters when choosing a baby name?  Being able to parlay it into cash a brand?  I mean, clearly that’s what my parents had in mind with “Candy Kirby” —


Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
