Actress Ellen Pompeo struggles to be away from her young daughter while filming GREY'S ANATOMY - admitting she's "not the nicest person" on set because she is always worrying about the tot.
The 40 year old returned to the show just four weeks after giving birth to Stella last year (09), insisting she "needed to work" while she still had a job.
But as Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery celebrated Stella's first birthday on 15 September (10), the actress reveals she finds it tough being away from her little girl.
She tells America's TV Guide, "It's very challenging. I bring her here as often as I can, but sometimes I have my moments where I am not the nicest person here because I feel very stressed that I want to get home to her."
