Sienna May Pompeo Ivery (daughter with Chris Ivery)
Month of Birth: September 2014
The People Choice winner is forever grateful to the woman who agreed to surrogacy on their behalf. Pompeo was carried along from inception and in fact, held the ‘carrier’s’ hands while she was inseminated at the hospital. We think she opted for surrogacy because she felt she was too old to carry another child. This thought is from an interview when she agreed that career women tend to get pregnant late but she would not have had it differently as she has the best of both worlds.
It took two months before the birth of Sienna was announced. For a woman leading a very public life, keeping some things private could be a really big task. Pompeo decided to keep it on the low for a while in order to protect the identity of the surrogate mother.
