Ellen Pompeo Jokes Daughter Stella Only Thinks Rhode Gift Is ‘Cool’ If From Hailey Bieber’s PR List

Ellen Pompeo isn’t just any regular mom, she’s a cool mom — and she’s got the receipts to prove it.

“I was trying to be, like, Mom of the Year or Mom of the Week or something to the 14-year-old, who’s so embarrassed right now, and I was like, ‘Oh, let me get her something super cool, and then she’ll think I’m cool,” the Grey’s Anatomy star, 53, said in a Friday, October 6, Instagram video about her daughter Stella. “I ordered it: Rhode.”

As Pompeo held up the skincare brand’s — helmed by Hailey Bieber — box of goodies, she revealed Stella was initially surprised to see it sitting in their family’s mailbox.

“She saw it in the mailbox and she thought I was on the PR list, and I just got it sent to me,” the actress — who shares her daughter with husband Chris Ivery, as well as younger daughter Sienna, 9, and son Eli, 6 — replied, as Stella giggled in the background. “That would make me a cool mom, but when she found out that I just went online and ordered it like everybody else, my stock dropped, yo!”

Grey’s Anatomy gang! Caterina Scorsone and more cast members of the ABC show have been raising families off camera. The actress became a mom in 2012 when her daughter Eliza was born, followed by Pippa and Lucinda in 2016 and 2019, respectively. While quarantining at home with her and then-husband Rob Giles‘ little ones amid […]

Pompeo, who sported a denim button-down with her hair tied back in a ponytail, then presented the package to an off-camera Stella to unbox.

“It’s every shade? I love it, I’m excited to try it,” Stella gushed before her mom gushed over the “beautiful” packaging and shade hues. “You just, like, went up [cool] points,” Stella added.

After Pompeo was pleased to see her cool stock rising for ordering Rhode products, she wondered if Bieber’s brand even had a publicity mailing list in the first place.

“Do you know how popular she is? She might not even give anybody anything for free,” Pompeo added of the model, 26. “Because she’s up here [on the A-List].”

Stella corrected her mom, noting that there was definitely “a list.”

Ellen Pompeo‘s character Meredith Grey may have a rocky relationship history on Grey’s Anatomy — but her real-life love story is much more stable.  Pompeo met husband Chris Ivery in a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003 and after six months of friendship, the couple began dating. After nearly four years together, they secretly wed […]

Bieber, who launched her skincare brand in April 2022, responded to Pompeo’s story in the Instagram comments.

“*adds Ellen to PR list immediately,” Hailey, who is married to singer Justin Bieber, replied. “LOVE U SO MUCH!!!!!!”

Hailey has long been adamant that Rhode, which is titled after her middle name, retails at a reasonable price point.

“I know what I want to give to the people,” she told WSJ. Magazine in February 2022. “The whole ethos of my brand is access to really good quality products that are really affordable. I just don’t see what a $200 cream has to be the answer to good skin.”

Cutouts! Catsuits! Cargo! Hailey Bieber — née Baldwin — is notoriously Hollywood’s It-Girl. The influencer has long been hailed as a fashion icon, even before marrying Justin Bieber in 2018. Together, the couple has slayed at the Met Gala, Grammys and Billboard Music Awards, serving up major #couplegoals. Hailey, however, is still a moment on […]

While Stella was pleased with Pompeo’s beauty choices, she must wait a few more years before she could potentially follow in her mom’s professional footsteps.

“[Stella] has to wait until she’s 18 [to start acting],” Pompeo exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2018. “You know, she can do whatever she wants when she’s 18. And then she’ll still have to deal [with] me being glued to her 24 hours a day! … I try not to judge her choices. I just want to be there to support her.”
