It’s a girl! Melissa Rauch has welcomed her first child, a baby girl, with husband Winston Rauch.

The Big Bang Theory star, 37, announced the happy news in an Instagram post on Monday, December 4. “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,” she wrote. “I will never take for granted the difficult road it took to get here. To those on that road: I’m sending you so much love today and always. 💕💕💕💕💕💕”

The exciting news sparked loads of enthusiasm from followers. “Congratulations!!! I’m sure Sadie is just as strong and brave as her mama!” wrote one commenter.

Another added, “So happy for you!!! I went through 1 miscarriage years ago and know many that have gone though several. Such a heartbreaking thing. I know you are over the moon happy about your beautiful baby girl!! @themelissarauch”

As previously reported, the actress confirmed her pregnancy in an essay for Glamour.com back in July and opened up about suffering a previous miscarriage.

“The miscarriage I experienced was one of the most profound sorrows I have ever felt in my life. It kickstarted a primal depression that lingered in me,” she said in the interview. “The image of our baby on the ultrasound monitor — without movement, without a heartbeat — after we had seen that same little heart healthy and flickering just two weeks prior completely blindsided us and haunts me to this day.”
