According to an Instagram post she made on Saturday, she gave birth to her daughter, Matilda Pelphrey, on Thursday.

“We are overjoyed and grateful for this little miracle,” she wrote.

Cuoco, 37, tagged her partner Tom Pelphrey in the post, saying: “(I) didn’t think I could fall even more in love with you, but I did.”

She shared a number of photographs of them both with the baby, including a few snaps from her hospital bed.
