Happy New Year from Ellen Pompeo and her son! The celebrity mom shared video footage of her and little Eli Christopher dancing in the kitchen that has captured the hearts of many.

“Boy Crazy….Here’s to a year filled with happiness and love,” Pompeo exclaimed. The celebrity mom snuggled close to her son in the video while moving to the rhythm of a classic. Little Eli cooperated with mom as he simply looked around while dancing with Ellen. More than one million viewers responded to the beautiful post and thousands commented. “You’re glowing,” one follower wrote. “He is so handsome.”


Eli joins the family as Ellen and husband Chris Ivery’s first son. The little one has two older sisters, Sienna and Stella, whom Ellen is rearing to be confident.

“My daughters are black so it’s very important to me that they see a lot of images of beautiful, powerful, strong black women,” Pompeo said during an interview last July. “Every time there is a black woman on a magazine cover, whether it is Kerry Washington or whoever it is, I make sure that magazine is in my house and on my table. For me, that’s super important.”

Eli made Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery parents for the third time. The little one was born last week.
