Sienna May’s Parents Work In The Entertainment Industry
Sienna May’s mom, Ellen Pompeo, is a popular actress and producer from Massachusetts, USA. She gained prominence through her role as Meredith Grey in the popular American medical drama television series Grey’s Anatomy. Besides that, she also has acting credits in several other television series like Law & Order, Station 19, Friends, The Job, etc., and movies like Life of the Party, Old School, Daredevil, Coming Soon, Moonlight Mile, etc. As a result, Sienna’s mama, Ellen Pompeo’s fortune is $80 million.
Sienna May’s father, Chris Ivery, was a music producer based in LA. He has worked as a music producer in the music industry for 25 years. In his career, Chris also served as a co-writer for Rihanna’s 2010 song, Cheers (Drink to That). The song was later performed in a 2012 episode of Smash.
After working in the music industry for 25 years, Sienna’s dad changed his profession and launched a clothing line called STLA in 2019. He is a longtime fan of the classic Italian sportswear label Sergio Tacchini and thus wanted to have the brand in the stores in the USA. So, Ivery reached out to the team of Sergio Tacchini to relaunch the label in LA, and hence the STLA collection was created.
Sienna May Looks Upto Michelle Obama
While Sienna May Pompeo Ivery’s mother has found immense success in her career, she seems to have found inspiration from another popular woman. The Grey’s Anatomy star once shared a video of Sienna where she said she wanted to be like former First Lady Michelle Obama. She also added that Michelle is nice and she wants to make the world a better place by being nice like her.
Sienna’s inspiration, Michelle saw the video and took the time to comment on it. Obama said that Pompeo Ivery’s words made her day. She even asked Ellen to convey her message to Sienna that she’ll be able to change the world and make it a better place.
Ellen and Chris’s daughter, Sienna is quite young to choose a career yet. She might follow in one of her parents’ footsteps and might become successful like them. Or maybe she will become the future Michelle Obama, only time will tell. We can only hope the little one finds success in her life.
