Melissa Rauch gave birth to her first child. And now she is a mom, like her character in Big Bang Theory, Bernadette.
The actress shared the beautiful news on Monday with a Instagram post, saying “It’s a girl.”
“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,” Melissa captioned the post.
“I will never take for granted the difficult road it took to get here.”
The actress continued, “To those on that road: I’m sending you so much love today and always.”
Sadie, is Melissa and Winston’s first child. They previously suffered a miscarriage before the actress shared she was pregnant again in July.
She talked about her journey toward motherhood in July for Glamour.com.
“Here is the only statement regarding my pregnancy that doesn’t make me feel like a complete fraud: ‘Melissa is expecting her first child.
She is extremely overjoyed, but if she’s being honest, due to the fact that she had a miscarriage the last time she was pregnant, she’s pretty much terrified at the moment that it will happen again,'” Melissa, who is married to Winston Rauch, began.
“‘She feels weird even announcing this at all, and would rather wait until her child heads off to college to tell anyone, but she figures she should probably share this news before someone sees her waddling around with her mid-section protruding and announces it first'”
Melissa also opened up and revealed that she “felt like a tiny stab in the heart” while struggling with fertility issues.
Moreover, she believes that her experiences will have a huge impact on her parenting style going forward.
“I know it’s made me grateful for every moment of my current pregnancy, and I hope it will make me a better mother in some capacity when I can finally hold the child that has been in my heart in my arms,” she wrote. “To all the women out there who are dealing with fertility issues, have gone through a miscarriage or are going through the pain of it currently, allow me to leave you with this message: You are not alone. And, it is perfectly OK to not be OK right now.”
