Surprise! Ellen Pompeo is a mom for the second time.

The Grey's Anatomy star announced the birth of her healthy baby girl online Thursday, writing, "Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world. We love you more than words can say." Pompeo included a photo of her husband, Chris Ivery, embracing their newest addition.

Pompeo said the baby was delivered via surrogate and she made a special effort to thank Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes for helping to keep the pregnancy under wraps.

"Sienna was born via surrogate & I would like to thank my whole @ShondalandTV family for helping us enjoy these first few weeks privately," Pompeo posted.

Congratulations to mama, papa, and (last but not least) big sister Stella. Let the sleeplessness begin!
