Big Bang Theory alum Melissa Rauch has welcomed her second child into the world with her husband Winston Beigel.
Melissa shared a simple photo of a blue baby hat that displayed her second child’s name. She has welcomed a son named Brooks Rauch. She shared, “I am incredibly thankful and overjoyed to announce the birth of our son, Brooks Rauch, who we just welcomed into the world and directly into our hearts.”
Brooks will be welcomed into the family by an older sister named Sadie, whom Melissa gave birth to in December 2017.
In her post, Melissa went on to discuss her appreciation for the people who helped her deliver her son amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “His arrival was made possible, in no small part, by the front line heroes – the nurses and doctors who show up each day to make sure that life keeps marching forward, regardless of the circumstances. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have this baby boy join our family, but to say that it is a surreal time to be bringing life into the world is an understatement. Given that, I wanted to share some thoughts with other expectant mothers or ‘Pandemamamas’ – as I like to call us – who are navigating these uncharted waters.” Melissa then referenced a moving piece she wrote for Glamour on what it was like for her to give birth during a pandemic.
Then, Melissa wrote a message to parents struggling with infertility, something she previously shared she has struggled with. “I am no stranger to loss on the road to motherhood – so to those dealing with infertility or grieving a loss, please know you are in my heart and I’m sending you so much love.”
