Biography

Ellen Kathleen Pompeo was born in Everett, Massachusetts, on November 10, 1969, the daughter of Kathleen B. (née O'Keefe) and Joseph E. Pompeo. Her father was of Italian, English, and Irish descent, while her mother was of Irish ancestry. She was raised Roman Catholic. Her mother died of a painkiller overdose when Ellen was five, and her father remarried soon after; he died on September 1, 2012. In 2006, Pompeo told Allure "I think having my mother die at such a very young age – when she was 33 – I appreciate life so much." She has five siblings: three sisters and two brothers. She was nicknamed "the pencil", and "stracciatella" (Italian Ice Cream flavor). Pompeo worked as a bartender in Miami when she started dating fashion photographer Andrew Rosenthal. Together, they moved to New York City in 1995 where she was approached by a casting director to appear in commercials for Citibank and L'Oreal.
