The Dr. Amelia Shepherd of the Kate Walsh-starring TV series shares the happy news by stating, 'I'm starting to show now. Everybody on set has been pretty sweet and is offering me fruit.'

Caterina Scorsone is having a bun in the oven. The Dr. Amelia Shepherd of "Private Practice" excitedly told PEOPLE, "I'm starting to show now. Everybody on set has been pretty sweet and is offering me fruit."

The 30-year-old actress is expected to give birth to the baby in summer this year. This will be her first child with her musician husband Rob Giles. "We're over the moon," she gushed about the upcoming addition to their family.

Scorsone's fictional character also got pregnant in the medical dramedy. "This year Amelia - who had been sober - fell off the wagon after her friend died," she said before adding, "She hit rock bottom, had an intervention and went to rehab. So this news is on the heels of that."

Her pregnancy, in the meantime, gave inspiration to Shonda Rhimes who serves as the creator of the show. "The news came out of left field and I think she decided she could use this for dramatic purposes," the Canadian star spilled.

"As an actress it never feels like the right time. But once we knew what was happening we were like, 'This is perfect'," she continued. "Shonda was immediately excited and talked about what we could do when the baby came so [he or she] could be on set," she further gushed. "She's been unbelievably supportive."
