Hiding Ellen Pompeo’s Baby Bump Throughout Filming

By  | 

So everyone was wondering how they were going to hide Ellen's baby bump during the filming of this season of Grey's. Were they going to include it in the storyline? How were they going to hide it? Will Meredith disappear for a bit on the show? So far none of the above. They managed to hide Ellen's bump throughout the entire 2 hour premier!


To be honest, I completely forgot that she was pregnant while I was watching! I was so into the show for every other reason that I forgot to notice that they were hiding it! My cousin had to bring it up the day after. “Did you notice that they always showed Meredith from the back, or only from the neck up, or sitting down?” Once she mentioned that, I knew that she was right. Obviously they did a good job of it though since I didn't notice! So they got through the first premier, but will they get through the rest of the episodes that easily?

She looks about 5 – 6 months pregnant so I'm guessing her due date is somewhere at the end of the year, or very early Jan! Just realized that I'm behind on the news! Ellen actually had her baby September 15th!

The filming for Season 6 all took place earlier in July, so it will be interesting to see how the episodes from here on in take place! Thanks Sandra for pointing that out 🙂
