Congratulations are in order for “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery. The couple welcomed their third child together — a baby boy.

Pompeo’s rep confirmed the good news in a statement to Us Weekly, telling the publication that she, the baby and the rest of the family were “doing great.” Pompeo, 47, shared the first photo of her little bundle of joy on Thursday, showing her hubby cuddling up to his first son. In her caption, the esteemed actress revealed the name that she and Ivery chose for their baby boy — Eli Christopher. Additionally, Pompeo joked that her husband “just fell a notch,” telling fans there was a new man in her life.

Days before her son’s birth, the “Grey’s Anatomy” star found herself at the center of social media controversy involving her children and her use of black emojis. The drama began on Dec. 22, when Pompeo praised A&E’s decision to rename their Ku Klux Klan docuseries, which has now been canceled. In the tweet, the actress used a black thumbs up, which drew mixed emotions from followers.

One Twitter user suggested that it was “not fair” to see a privileged white woman use black emojis for the heck of it, adding that it made her appear “really obnoxious. Pompeo fired back, calling her critic “a hater” and adding that racism is a problem that must be tackled by people of all colors. Her response was met with more controversy, at which point the actress pointed out that she has “a black husband and black children. Some felt that Pompeo was using her family as “props” to aid in her argument, which wasn’t helping.

Drama aside, Pompeo and Ivery have been happily married since 2007. The pair had two children together prior to welcoming their son. Their daughters Stella Luna and Sienna May are 7 and 2 respectively. Pompeo gave birth to Stella in 2009 and made the decision to have her second daughter via surrogate. She was open about the process throughout. During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” she called it “an incredible thing to do,” adding that she was “forever grateful.”
