Scrubs Storyline Spoiler: A Pregnant Elliot!

at .

In real life, Sarah Chalke is pregnant.

When Scrubs returns for a new season, the same will be said for her character Elliot.

Chalke confirmed this week that her pregnancy has been written into the sitcom's ninth season.

"It's kind of a time cut into the future, so J.D. and I are already married and pregnant with our first kid," Chalke told Hollywood 411. "[Producer Bill Lawrence] l was very generous to write it in, so I'm not, like, carrying a giant chart or something in front of my belly all the time."

Carla and Elliot Get Close

As previously reported, major changes are in store on Scrubs.

It will return in January with a new cast of medical school students, as Zach Braff is on board for the first six episodes; and John C. McGinley and Donald Faison will be series regulars on which the show focuses.

Hey, as long as the same funny Scrubs quotes are there, we're in!

Scrubs Quotes

Neena: So should we start this deposition, or do you boys just want to hand us a big bag of money?
Mr. Corman: Big bag of money...
Turk: You aren't going to freeze up around her again, are you Ted?
Ted: No chance. I'm drugged up. Plus, if I concentrate, I think I can control the excessive flop sweat I get the second she speaks!

Look, J.D., ever since you dumped me, everyone around here's been treating me like some kind of a victim. It's like, "Ohh, look at poor Elliot going home alone." Or, "Ohh, look at poor Elliot riding a tandem bike by herself." That's not something I normally do, I just really wanted ice cream the other night, my car was out of gas, and that's the bike the Gundersons loaned me.
