Paging Dr. Elliot Reed! Scrub’s actress Sarah Chalke is pregnant with her second child! The actress made the announcement by showing off her baby bump at the Vital Voices and Vanity Fair luncheon last week.
The baby, who is due in the spring, is the second for Chalke and her boyfriend, entertainment lawyer Jamie Afifi. The couple already have a 6 year old son, Charlie Rhose Afifi.
At age 2, Charlie was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease. Not long after, Chalke told Wetpaint, “It was a very difficult time because [he] was misdiagnosed a lot, and we fought really hard to get him seen by a specialist.” She added, “We got the treatment on day ten, so it was on the late side. Thank God he is okay.”
Chalke, who is known well for her roles on Roseanne and How I Met Your Mother, will next appear in the upcoming ensemble film, Mother’s Day.
