Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki and much younger lover to be first time parents

Congratulations are in store for The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki as it is revealed he is set to become a first time father.

The 44-year-old Belgium-born American actor has knocked up his 22-year-old girlfriend Alaina Meyers – and it seems the pair couldn’t possibly be happier.

Johnny – who is paid $1 million (£760,000) per episode of the 12 seasons and 279 episode strong US sitcom – has been dating Alaina for less than one year.

The couple reportedly started dating last September – and news of their impending parenthood has left them both overjoyed.

“We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world,” Johnny wrote on Instagram as he shared a selfie with his beloved.

“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,” he added.

Much younger girlfriend Alaina echoed Johnny’s sentiments as she posed the same photo along with a gushing statement of her own.

“So happy to announce that we are having a baby!” the budding American model gushed.

“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.

Johnny is said to be worth an estimated $50 million (£38 million) – but will soon find his income decreasing as the long running Big Bang Theory finally comes to an end this year after 12 years on air.

But Johnny is likely to make millions more form the divicive ‘comedy’ show as it has been reported syndication deals could net the cast $20 million (£15 million) each per year.
