The couple met in an L.A. grocery store. Though Pompeo wasn’t interested in a date originally, she agreed to go out with Ivery when they bumped into each other again six months later. They discovered that they grew up 10 miles from each other outside of Boston. “I had to go 3,000 miles away to meet a guy who practically grew up next door,” Pompeo told the Boston Herald last year. “But I guess everything comes full circle.”
