Pompeo, 47, and the music producer tied the knot in November 2007 and are already parents of daughters Stella Luna, 7, and Sienna May, 2. (Pompeo gave birth to Stella in 2009 and Sienna arrived via surrogate five years later.)

Pompeo, who has starred on Shonda Rhimesmedical drama since its 2005 debut, revealed that Eli is now sleeping through the night. “I have the most fantastic baby nurse, Jackie.
