More Couples with Big Age Gaps

The 44-year-old actor and his 22-year-old girlfriend are expecting their first child together.

"Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki made a big announcement over the weekend: he's going to be dad to a baby boy!

The 44-year-old actor and his 22-year-old girlfriend Alaina Meyer revealed the sex of their baby-to-be on Sunday, surrounded by family and friends ... and a whole lotta paint.

The two found out the baby's sex after popping a bunch of black balloons, which were filled with blue paint. "A day I'll never forget," Galecki captioned a photo of the couple kissing in the aftermath of the big reveal.

"I can not wait to raise a baby boy with my love," Meyer wrote on her own page. "He will follow in his fathers footsteps of being a generous, loving, chivalrous fellow."

The two announced they're expecting their first child together earlier this month, confirming the news with a pair of Instagram posts.

"We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world," wrote the actor alongside a photo of the couple. "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."

On her own page, Meyer shared the same photo, adding, "So happy to announce that we are having a baby! There couldn't be a better blessing in the world for us and we are over the moon happy."

"We appreciate as much privacy in this time as we are celebrating with close friends and family, and we are happy to share the news with you," she added.

The two were first spotted together in the summer of 2018, before making their red carpet debut at the People's Choice Awards in November that same year.
