The Big Bang Theory star and the Ozark actor welcomed their daughter in March
Born in late March, Matilda marked the first foray into parenting for both Kaley and Tom, 41, who started dating in April of 2022.Introducing their newborn on April 1 with a photo of hers wrapped in a blanket, Kaley wrote: “Introducing, Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, the new light of our lives.
“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. @tommypelphrey didn’t think I could fall even more in love with you, but I did.”
“We got pregnant two months in,” she said, adding that she and Tom were “like, boom, boom, boom. We’re in sync,” despite the sudden nature of it all. She continued: “We’re not 20 anymore. We were like, ‘We doing this or not?’”
Kaley realized she was pregnant while shooting the Peacock series Based on a True Story, and her pregnancy was woven into the plot of the series.In an interview with Access Hollywood with co-star Chris Messina, when asked about Matilda’s “on screen debut,” Kaley joked: “She’s already a little diva.”
“I thought it was a fluke but I’ve done it a few times and she [widens eyes] looks around. So she’s going to have to meet them one day. Her idols.”
