In the new interview of Self magazine, Ellen Pompeo explains why she rushed back to work on Grey’s Anatomy after having her daughter Stella Luna, now 6 months old.
The actress went to work just 4 weeks after giving birth.
She explains,”A lot of people couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t take my maternity leave. I felt like I needed to work while I had this opportunity. The writers and producers were really gracious and wrote my scenes so I could preshoot them.”
Did you go back to work soon after having your baby? How many weeks maternity leave did you take?
