'Big Bang' baby! Melissa Rauch is celebrating the birth of her baby boy, named Brooks. The actress took to Instagram to share the delightful news.
The 39-year-old said, "I am incredibly thankful and overjoyed to announce the birth of our son, Brooks Rauch, who we just welcomed into the world and directly into our hearts."
'The Big Bang Theory' star continued, "His arrival was made possible, in no small part, by the front line heroes — the nurses and doctors who show up each day to make sure that life keeps marching forward, regardless of the circumstances. Words can't describe how grateful I am to have this baby boy join our family, but to say that it is a surreal time to be bringing life into the world is an understatement."
In the Instagram upload, the actress shows off a small blue hat with the name of herself and her partner Winston Beigel knitted on edge.
In an essay for Glamour on Monday, the Bernadette Rostenkowski actress, the mother of the 2-year-old daughter, Sadie, was "so fearful" ahead of the birth of her second child, Brooks, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rauch admitted she was incredibly fearful of giving birth without a tow supporter and care team, combined with the health concerns about going into a medical facility during a pandemic. Therefore, she tried her best to prepare for a scenario she never imagined facing. "Filling my hospital bag with disinfecting wipes and practicing labor breathing in a mask like I was training for a dystopian marathon," stated Melissa.
The New Jersey native knew she had to get the job done whatever it took while her husband joined the birth through FaceTime.
Raunch wrote nobody can predict how their kids would be brought into this world since there are several things she doesn't know.
The actress concluded, "Namely, you are stronger than you think—more than you ever imagined possible. And also, my perineum hurts the same excruciating amount that it did after my last birth. So the good news is that some things about birthing are exactly the same, pandemic or not."
