The cat’s out of the bag! Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) have been keeping their relationship under the radar, but that’s all over on the Thursday, April 18, Grey’s Anatomy episode. After DeLuca ran into Zola in the middle of the night at Meredith’s, she was forced to tell her kids she was dating again, but the question was, “How?”
But first, it was time to bring up the subject of kids with DeLuca: Did he even like them? He promised her he did, but warned her of one thing: Her kids might just end up liking him more than they like her. And in the meantime, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) was there to offer up some advice about how to break the news to her kids, being that she’d had some experience in that area herself with Tuck.
“All you have to do is show up, make it clear what’s happening, answer her questions,” Bailey said. “All she wants to know is that you’re not going anywhere no matter what.”
When Meredith got home that night, she let her kids know that DeLuca is her boyfriend, and overall, all three of them seemed okay with it.
“He may be coming around a lot more, but I’m not going anywhere,” she told them. “You’re stuck with me.”
