Big Bang Therory star Johnny Galecki has welcomed his first child with girlfriend Alaina Meyer. Both Johnny and Alaina posted a picture of their hands holding the hands of their newborn son.

The couple have chosen to name their first son Avery, which means “elf ruler.” How cute!

Johnny and Alaina first announced they were expecting in May. Johnny took to Instagram to post a picture with Alaina and shared, “We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this celebratory time for us and our families. There truly is love out there for all. We hope ours is the ember of yours, as we feel yours is the ember of ours.”

At the end of that month, Johnny posted a photo from the couple’s gender reveal. Alaina and Johnny were wearing painters jumpsuits and covered in blue paint to reveal their first child would be a boy!
