Melissa Rauch is pregnant — and opening up about her emotional journey toward becoming a mom.
The Big Bang Theory star, who plays microbiologist and new mom Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz on the hit CBS comedy, wrote an essay for Glamour.com detailing how she and husband Winston are expecting a baby this fall, after experiencing a miscarriage previously.
“Here is the only statement regarding my pregnancy that doesn’t make me feel like a complete fraud: ‘Melissa is expecting her first child. She is extremely overjoyed, but if she’s being honest, due to the fact that she had a miscarriage the last time she was pregnant, she’s pretty much terrified at the moment that it will happen again,’ ” Rauch begins in the piece.
” ‘She feels weird even announcing this at all, and would rather wait until her child heads off to college to tell anyone, but she figures she should probably share this news before someone sees her waddling around with her mid-section protruding and announces it first,’ ” adds the actress, 37.
