‘A day I’ll never forget,’ Galecki wrote alongside a photo of himself kissing his pregnant girlfriend after the reveal.
The couple wore overalls, Meyer in white and the Big Bang Theory star wearing navy.
Earlier this month the actor said he was hoping for a girl.
During an appearance on The Talk Galecki had a couple of his nails painted pink and admitted to the hosts he was hoping for a girl.
‘I get a little bored looking exactly the same for nine and a half months every year playing Leonard, so we wrapped and I put some blue in my hair,’ he said.

Galecki played Leonard Hofstadter on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, which wrapped up its 12-season on May 16.

‘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.’

Following the end of her marriage to Sweeting, the actress, 33, went on to tie the knot for a second time with equestrian Karl Cook this past June.
Johnny also dated his Roseanne co-star Sara Gilbert while starring on the show in the 1990s.
