On Meyer's Instagram account, she too, posted a picture of the new family addition, but in color. Back in October, Meyer shared that the couple had decided on the name Avery for their son and made sure to document her baby shower on her Instagram account. In the caption, Meyer stated, "My amazing mama and auntie put together the most amazing celestial shower. I am so grateful for the sweetest, most amazing night, celebrating Avery." She also included a shoutout to Galecki for his kind gestures for her and Avery at the shower sharing, "PS: My sweet @sacntionedjohnnygalecki sent so many sweet surprises and my heart couldn't be more full and grateful."

How the two met is not exactly known, but the couple first was seen together at the E! People's Choice Awards in November of 2018. Since that point, things have been going quickly for Galecki and Meyers. It was just in May when Galecki put out a formal announcement that they would be expecting their first child together. In an Instagram post, he shared, "We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world."
