The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki has welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend Alaina Meyer.
The actor, 44, who starred as Leonard in the hit sitcom, took to social media to share the happy news that he and his girlfriend, 21, had become parents.
Sharing an adorable black and white picture of all three of them holding hands, he wrote: “With full and grateful hearts we welcome our beautiful son into this incredible world. Thank you for all of your love and support.”
They are yet to announce their son’s name.
Model Alaina, who documented her pregnancy online with a series of stunning snaps, shared a similar announcement with her followers.
The couple had revealed back in May that they were expecting a boy.
After they hosted a lavish gender reveal party, she said on social media: “To all those who voted boy you were right!”
Johnny later posted a picture of himself kissing his pregnant girlfriend, saying: “A day I’ll never forget”
He had previously admitted during an appearance on The Talk that he was hoping for a girl, and had even painted some of his nails pink.
He said: “I get a little bored looking exactly the same for nine and a half months every year playing Leonard, so we wrapped and I put some blue in my hair.
“Then I got superstitious that I was like manifesting a boy… when I kinda prefer a girl… don’t play this tape for my child years from now… so I painted my nails pink to kinda even out the energy there.”
The couple announced they were expecting a baby back in May, saying: “We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world.
“We ask that you please respect our privacy during this celebratory time for us and our families. There truly is love out there for all. We hope ours is the ember of yours, as we feel yours is the ember of ours.”
