Finally, Ellen herself confirmed the news by posting a portrait of her husband and their newest boss in life. There are no further reports whether Eli Christopher arrived via surrogate as well.
Not long ago, after she posted a photo of Sienna May on her Instagram, Ellen appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared the secret surrogacy process.
“This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her—she who will remain anonymous,” the actress said. “I was there with her when they inseminated her, and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo.”
“I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy and they inseminated her,” Ellen revealed to host Jimmy Kimmel. “And then we held hands and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”
Ellen and her family have been quiet about adding members to their family. Now, she’s a mom to three beautiful kids, while she also continually portrays her TV role as Dr. Meredith Grey.
