Sarah Lancaster, Ellie of TV’s ‘Chuck,’ has a son

Lancaster, 31, and her attorney-husband Matthew Jacobs actually welcomed their new son — Oliver Michael Jacobs — into the world in June, but Lancaster’s rep confirmed the news to People earlier today.

Lancaster and Jacobs married in January. That wedding should not be confused with the wedding of Ellie Bartowski and Devon Woodcomb, aka Captain Awesome, which occurred at the end of season two of “Chuck.”And Lancaster’s baby should not be confused with Clara, the daughter Ellie and Awesome welcomed into the world during “Chuck’s” fourth season.

Because, to be clear, Lancaster’s life is real. Her “Chuck” existence? Fictional.
