Ellen Pompeo "So Excited" to Be a Mom, Says Costar
Ellen Pompeo is ready to be a mom! At least that's what her Grey's Anatomy costar, Jessica Capshaw, tells Usmagazine.com.
"She is so on top of it, and she is so excited and she is very sweet about it," Capshaw told Us at an event at the Byron & Tracey Salon in Beverly Hills on Thursday. "She is doing her research." Capshaw -- who had her first child, Luke, in September 2007 -- hasn't had to give any parenting advice.
"She doesn't need any," the actress tells Us. "She is exactly the way that she should be about it, which is really excited and hopeful but at the same time really pragmatic and planning. And I think that is the best way for her to be." Pompeo, 39, announced in April that she and her music producer husband, Chris Ivery, are expecting their first child.
Capshaw -- who stars as Dr. Arizona Robbins in the hit ABC series -- doesn't know if her pregnancy will be written into next season's show, and she's equally unaware if T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl will return (The two appeared to have died in the season finale). "No one knows!" Capshaw, the daughter of Kate Capshaw and stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg says. She adds: "[Show creator Shonda Rhimes] is keeping it under wraps, and I think the best thing about that is she is the guardian of the gate. It's better that way. She doesn't even run the risk of it coming out because nobody knows."
