Just two weeks after giving birth to baby girl Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery, a radiant Ellen Pompeo, with husband Christopher Ivery by her side, told PEOPLE “I feel great” as she stepped out Wednesday to attend the collection launch of Adidas Originals by David Beckham and James Bond in Los Angeles.

Donning heels and a black sweater-dress, the Grey’s Anatomy star, 39, said, “everything is fantastic” on the home front, and that the best thing about being a new mom is “everything. I’m the luckiest girl in the world!”

Though both Pompeo and Katherine Heigl, who recently adopted baby girl Naleigh, are still both on breaks from filming their ABC medical series, Pompeo says their daughters’ social calendars are bound to fill up.

On the agenda: Possible play dates, but only when Stella “catches up a little bit” in age to Naleigh. “She’s a lot older,” notes Pompeo.
