Actress Melissa Rauch has revealed she is pregnant.
The Big Bang Theory star announced the beautiful news on Wednesday. She did however say the announcement was bitter sweet, after previously suffering a miscarriage.
In an emotional essay for Glamour.com, the 37-year-old said: “When I thought about having to share the news about expecting this baby, all I could think about was another woman mourning over her loss as I did.”

“It felt a bit disingenuous to not also share the struggle it took for me to get here.”
The American sitcom star, who is married to Winston Beigel, said she wanted to share her story to help other women.
“I personally just wanted to express what I’ve experienced in the hopes that it could—in some small way—help someone going through a similar pain,” she wrote.
“All I really know for sure is that this experience has changed me forever. I know it’s made me grateful for every moment of my current pregnancy, and I hope it will make me a better mother in some capacity when I can finally hold the child that has been in my heart in my arms.”
Rauch’s baby is due at the end of the year.
