Kaley Cuoco and Tom Pelphrey are officially parents after welcoming a baby girl earlier this week!
Kaley and Tom welcomed their newborn daughter on Friday, 30 March, and announced the thrilling news to fans the following day.
Sharing some precious photos from their first 24 hours as parents, Kaley revealed their little girl's name.
The Big Bang Theory star captioned the post: "3-30-23 Introducing, Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, the new light of our lives!" Kaley, 37, wrote in her Instagram caption.
"We are overjoyed and grateful for this little miracle. Thank you to the doctors, nurses, family and friends who have helped us immensely over the last few days. We are blessed beyond belief."
She then added: "@tommypelphrey didn’t think I could fall even more in love with you , but I did."
Kaley's post included a few solo photos of baby Matilda, some selfies of Kaley cradling her baby girl, and a photo of Kaley, Tom, and Matilda resting in the hospital bed together.
Funnily enough, in the photos, Tom wears a black cap and a grey t-shirt that reads: "Waltzing Matilda."
Could this have been the inspiration behind their daughter's name?
Tom also shared the good news to Instagram, posting a series of snaps from their exciting hospital visit.
Opening with a quote from the poet Rumi, he wrote: "'You are the Soul of the Universe. And your name is Love.’ -Rumi.”
The caption continued: “My heart is full of love and gratitude for this miracle….Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey.
“Eternally grateful for the strength and bravery of my soulmate and best friend @kaleycuoco. You are incredible.”
Kaley and Tom announced back in October that they were expecting their first child together, sharing photos from their gender reveal party to Instagram.
"Baby girl Pelphrey coming 2023," Kaley wrote at the time. "Beyond blessed and over the moon."
Meanwhile, in his own announcement, Tom had written: "And then it was even MORE BETTER. Love you more than ever @kaleycuoco."
These two are just too cute!
The happy couple first met through their mutual manager Andrea Pett-Joseph, who realised before they did that they'd be perfect for each other.
In an interview with USA Today last May, Kaley reflected on the moment they first met, and insisted it was love at first sight.
"We were set up by [her], which is so Hollywood," she joked.
"She's like, 'Oh my God, I think you guys are perfect for each other.'
"I was standing with Andrea and Tom walked in, and I heard his voice, and I turned around, and it was like my life was over, or just starting.
"It hit me. It was love at first sight. We were immediately connected. I do feel like I've known him my whole life, but I wasn't ready for him. We're ready to build a life together."
And the rest, as they say, is history.
