Kaley Cuoco gives birth and welcomes her first child with Tom Pelphrey
One of Kaley Cuoco’s most important roles has officially taken off: motherhood!
The flight attendant star took to Instagram on Saturday and announced that her daughter, Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, was born on Thursday. In her post, Cuoco posted several photos, including the new mom cradling the little one. Boyfriend Tom Pelphrey is also seen holding the baby girl.
“💓 3/30/23 💓 Meet Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, the new light in our lives! We are thrilled and grateful for this little miracle 💓,” she captioned her post. “Thank you to the doctors, nurses, family and friends who have been so supportive over the past few days. We are blessed beyond belief 💗 @tommypelphrey didn’t think I could fall in love with you even more, but I did it 💗.”
It was in October that the Big Bang Theory alum revealed she was pregnant. “Baby girl Pelphrey is coming 2023💕 beyond blessing and moon,” she wrote in her social media announcement. “…I 💓you @tommypelphrey!!!”
Months earlier, in May, Cuoco appeared to confirm her romance with Pelphrey when she shared PDA photos of them together on Instagram.
In September 2021, she announced her separation from her ex, Karl Cook, whom she married in June 2018. She was previously married to tennis player Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016.
As she wrote to Pelphrey on her birthday in July: “To the amazing man who saved me in every way…happy birthday, baby! To know you is to truly adore you… the world lit up the day you were born ❣️ 🎂 Love you!! @tommypelphrey.”
At the time of their pregnancy announcement, a source told ET, “It’s a crazy time for them, but they’re really so excited. Kaley knows she’s the right person. She can’t wait to be a mother. . They’ve had so much love and support since the announcement.”
Her former Big Bang Theory co-star Jim Parsons praised her as a mom-to-be, telling ET, “She’ll be amazing.”
“She’s a comforting presence…It’s been a pleasure to work with her day in and day out,” he explained. “She’s a very warm person. I think this child is lucky to have her as a mother.”
