“The Big Bang Theory” star welcomes first child

“The Big Bang Theory” star welcomes first child

If the last week is anything to go by, the cast of The Big Bang Theory’s lives are just as drama-filled as their characters! Just days after Kaley Cuoco (Penny) announced her engagement to partner Karl Cook, Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) has given birth to her first child!

The 37-year-old actress took to Instagram to share the exciting news and reveal her baby girl’s adorable name.

“I am beyond over the moon to share that our beautiful baby girl, Sadie Rauch, has arrived and our hearts are bursting at the seams with love for her,” she wrote. “I will never take for granted the difficult road it took to get here. To those on that road: I’m sending you so much love today and always.”

It certainly hasn’t been an easy path towards motherhood for Melissa and husband Winston, who revealed in July that she had suffered a miscarriage during her last pregnancy.

“The miscarriage I experienced was one of the most profound sorrows I have ever felt in my life,” she wrote in an emotional guest piece for Glamour.

“It kick-started a primal depression that lingered in me. The image of our baby on the ultrasound monitor – without movement, without a heartbeat – after we had seen that same little heart healthy and flickering just two weeks prior completely blindsided us and haunts me to this day.”

We wish all the best to Melissa and Winston and can’t wait to see the first photos of their miracle bub!
