The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery, into the world last week. The baby was born Sept. 15 in Los Angeles, Pompeo's rep tells Us Weekly.

It's the first child for Pompeo, 39, and Ivery, 41, who married in 2007.

The "Grey's Anatomy" set has experienced a bit of a baby boom recently. Pompeo's TV sister, Chyler Leigh, gave birth to her third child in April, and Katherine Heigl and her husband, Josh Kelley, recently adopted a baby girl.

Pompeo will be absent from several "Grey's" episodes this season while she's on maternity leave. The ABC show begins its sixth season on Thursday (Sept. 24) with a two-hour episode.
