Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is determined to set an example of healthy living for her daughter Stella Luna. The healthy mom, who was frequently spotted heading to the gym while pregnant, spoke with OK Magazine about teaching her daughter how to eat healthy and be active, and how losing her mother at the age of four has made her determined to stay healthy.
Of teaching her family the importance of healthy living, the 40-year-old said,
You have to set an example. What you do, they’ll do. Your kids are going to mimic anything you do, and if you only put healthy food in the fridge, that’s the only choice they have. If you only cook one thing, that’s what your husband’s going to have to eat. You have to put yourself first, and say ‘this is what I made, and this is what you’re going to eat.’ If you’re not healthy, you’re not around, and there is no wife and mother. We certainly want more birthdays and more Mother’s Days.”
Pompeo also touched on losing her mother at a young age and the impact it has had on her, adding, “I grew up without a mother, and it’s extremely important. It’s terrible to lose your mother. It’s terrible to lose anyone. We have to do it for them. We’re so busy being martyrs a lot of the time, doing everything for them. Well, this is for them. Taking care of yourself is for them.”
Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery have been married since late 2007 and welcomed Stella 8 months ago.

Modern Family funny-lady Julie Bowen has her hands full these days. The mom-of-3 boys jumped right onto her hit mockumentary-style show after welcoming twin boys Johnny (aka “Mister Gadget”) and Gus (“more lovey needy”), and one year later the family, including husband Scott Phillips and 3-year-old son Oliver has celebrated the twins 1st birthday with a charity bash, reports US Weekly.
Bowen chose to support Baby2Baby which donates gently used baby items to families in need. Of the party, the always-frank actress said,
Honestly, [the twins] have more than enough stuff and there are so many families in Los Angeles that don’t even have the bare necessities. So if I can take two over-privileged kids’ birthdays and use it as an opportunity to get other kids the stuff they need, I’m overjoyed to do that.”
Bowen then opened up a bit about big brother Oliver’s take on his little brothers’, joking, “I love Oliver. He is my first and is always going to have a very special place in my heart. But he has not come around to understanding the beauty of his brothers. He will, eventually, but we just have to try and make sure he doesn’t kill them.”
The actress also stopped by George Lopez’s show recently and dished on breastfeeding twins. She even included a pic, saying, “It’s like two little liposuction machines on you. They suck the fat out of you.”
