Ellen Pompeo pregnant, gets A in "Anatomy"

Ellen Pompeo

, Meredith Grey on "Grey's Anatomy," is pregnant, her rep has confirmed to E! News.

This will be the first child for Pompeo, 39, and husband,

Chris Ivery

, 41. "It's great news. They're ecstatic,"

Jennifer Allen

told "People", which first reported the news.

Pompeo and her music-producing beau wed in 2007.

With the show wrapping soon for its summer hiatus, it's unlikely Pompeo's pregnancy will need to be addressed in a TV storyline.

But there appears to be something in the water at Seattle Grace.

Chyler Leigh

, who plays Pompeo's onscreen sister, Lexie Grey, is due with her third child next month, and producers managed to keep her burgeoning belly disguised.
