Scrubs star Sarah Chalke is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Jamie Afifi, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
The groom-to-be surprised the actress, 30, and proposed during a Hawaiian vacation last week.
The Canadian-born Chalke, now in her sixth season on NBC’s Scrubs playing Dr. Elliot Reid, was on hiatus from the show when Afifi proposed. She returned to work on Monday.
Afifi, who is also a native of Canada, is a 33-year-old entertainment lawyer.
