Elfman's character in Purpose is unexpectedly impregnated by a younger man. "My character is pregnant the whole first season, so I said it's a good time to have another baby because we won't have to hide it," said Elfman. Her co-star, Ashley Jensen, is also pregnant in real life, but the producers are hiding her pregnancy on the show.

Elfman and her husband, actor Bodhi Elfman, have a 2-year-old son named Story Elias.
