Ellen Pompeo's daughter wants to follow in her 'Grey's Anatomy' character's footsteps and become a doctor.

The 45-year-old actress portrays Dr. Meredith Grey in the medical drama series and her and husband Chris Ivery's five-year-old daughter Stella has been getting plenty of practice in for her future career while visiting her mother on the programme's set.

Ellen said: "Every time she comes to set the first thing she wants to do is ... Linda Klein is our medical producer, wonderful woman, good friend of mine ... she just wants to go straight to Linda's office and play with all the medical things. All the fake organs.

"Yesterday I went in to find her, I couldn't find her, she was in Linda's office with Linda with a bone drill, drilling a fake femur bone with a real bone drill.

"I mean she was supervised, but you know they have her doing advanced procedures."

But Stella isn't always in such good spirits as Ellen revealed her eldest daughter was in a bad mood "every day for a month" following the birth or her and Chris' second child, six-month-old Sienna, but the youngster has now got used to having a younger sister.

Speaking on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Wednesday (04.03.15), she added: "She liked her at first. And then she said, 'Is she leaving?' I was like 'No, no, she's gonna live here.'

"She had about a month where she was not in a good mood. Bad mood every day for a month. And now that passed and now she's fine. [Stella] loves her!"
