Penny from Big Bang Theory is having a baby, but not with Leonard. Instead, this is real life — as Kaley Cuoco announced that she and boyfriend Tom Pelphrey are expecting a baby girl.
Cuoco, 36, made the announcement of her first child on Instagram. Pelphrey, of course, is known for portraying the troubled brother of Laura Linney’s Wendy Byrde on Ozark.
“Baby girl Pelphrey coming 2023 beyond blessed and over the moon… I (lemoji heart) you @tommypelphrey!!!” Cuoco wrote in the caption alongside a photo of the couple.

Pelphrey made an announcement of his own.
“And then it was even MORE BETTER,” he wrote. “Love you more than ever @kaleycuoco.”
Cuoco, currently playing the starring role on The Flight Attendant, actually met Pelphrey at the Ozark premiere, she told Extra for the premiere of her new movie, Meet Cute.
“My manager actually took me as her guest to the Ozark premiere, and I met him there,” Cuoco said. “It was like the angels started singing. I was like, ‘Hallelujah!’ It was very magical … it was perfect.”
While Cuoco may be pregnant, it seems the odds are against her getting married to Pelphrey. Or at least, that’s what she told Glamour back in April.
“I will never get married again,” Cuoco said. “Absolutely not. You can literally put that on the cover.”
For the record, Glamour did indeed put it on the cover.
She has been married twice — first to tennis player Ryan Sweeting (2013-16), and then to professional equestrian Karl Cook, the son of a billionaire (2018-21).
So while she may not be tying the knot with Pelphrey, the couple will now forever share a special bond, regardless of how their relationship plays out from here.
“I would love to have a long-lasting relationship or a partnership,” she told Glamour. “I believe in love because I’ve had incredible relationships. I know that they’re out there, I like being someone’s partner and having that companionship.”
