The beloved Meredith Grey may not be a doc at Seattle Grace for much longer. Ellen Pompeo could be following her former co-star Katherine Heigl‘s footsteps right out the door by leaving Grey’s Anatomy once her contract is up.
“I haven’t said I’m moving on,” Ellen told Extra. “I said that when my contract is up after Season 8 [in two years], I would probably not renew. I think the world has had a lot of Meredith Grey.”
The actress is very busy being a mom, spending time with her 9-month-old baby girl, Stella, whenever she can.
“I hold her, dance with her. I run around the yard. I find ways to stay active and I feel better,” Ellen said.
