Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo was photographed with daughter Stella, nearly 4, on Friday. The actress, 43, pushed her preschooler in the stroller as they made their way through New York City.
“It is challenging,” Ellen has said of juggling motherhood and her career.
“You know, I have my days where I feel really guilty that I’ve been here every day if I have to work a lot,” she added. “But the truth is I’m in a very blessed situation, I am so lucky. First of all, I am so lucky to live in a country where a girl like me can make this kind of living, achieve her dreams and reach her goals. And I don’t think anywhere else in the world can girls have the freedom that we do here to have these amazing careers and be mothers.”
Stella’s father is Ellen’s husband of five years, music producer Chris Ivery.
