Ellen Pompeo and Daughter Make a Rainy-Day Coffee Run (Photos)

Ellen and Stella brave the rain

It’s not a great weather day on either coast today. In these parts, the New York area got a few inches of snow today, and over in L.A., the skies were gray and rainy.

But when you’re a mom who needs a coffee break, you don’t let a few drops get in the way. You bundle up, slap a pair of boots on the kid and forge ahead.

That’s what Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo did today, braving the chill for a cup of something hot at L.A.’s Coffee Bean cafe. With her was her darling daughter, 2-year-old Stella Luna.

Forgoing glamor for comfort, Ellen went for the sweats-and-puffy-coat look, even skipping makeup this time. Who needs to look glamorous when everyone’s just going to look at your cute child anyway?
