Actor Zach Braff always knew his former SCRUBS co-star SARAH CHALKE would be a great mother - because she was already "very maternal" when they first met in 2001.
Chalke welcomed baby boy Charlie Rhodes, her first child with her fiance Jamie Afifi, on Christmas Eve (24Dec09) and Braff insists the actress is "very happy" with the new addition to her family.
He tells People.com, "She's doing great and she's a great mum! He’s a really great looking kid. I have not met him in person yet but I’ve seen lots of emailed photos and he’s adorable and gorgeous."
But Braff isn't surprised the actress is taking motherhood in her stride - he knew she was ready almost a decade ago.
He adds, "I met Sarah nine years ago and she was ready to become a mom even then. She’s a very maternal, loving person so we knew the second she left the set of Scrubs … she was ready to become a mum."
