Kaley Cuoco and Melissa Rauch may not work together anymore, but The Big Bang Theory stars appear to still keep in touch during major milestones in their lives.
On March 30, Kaley announced on Instagram the birth of her daughter Matilda Carmine Richie with her boyfriend, Ozark actor Tom Pelphrey. Among the many congratulatory words from celebrity friends and fans The Flight Attendant star received was a heartfelt message from her former cast member. While it didn’t happen immediately after the initial post went up, followers noticed that Melissa reached out a few days later in the comments of Kaley’s original post. She reveled in the news with Kaley, sharing how thrilled she was to see her become a mom.
“Soooo beautiful!!!” the Night Court actress commented on April 4.”Absolutely over the moon for you all! 💕💕💕💕.”
Due to the fact that Melissa’s response to Kaley’s life update was so public, longtime viewers of the show responded back with heart emojis and references to her character on The Big Bang Theory.
Although Kaley didn’t respond back (she did just give birth, after all), it doesn’t mean the two aren’t close. What’s more, they’ve actually shown up for each other in ways that don’t refer to working together.
People may remember that back in 2016, Melissa co-wrote and starred in the comedy The Bronze. At the time, Kaley made sure to attend the premiere as a way of supporting her longtime friend.
By the looks of it, the two formed a special bond while acting on The Big Bang Theory, because social media users saw the 8 Simple Rules alum stand right beside her comrade during an emotional photo alongside their fellow cast members.
“❤️ Always ❤️ ,” Melissa wrote in May 2019, standing next to Kaley in a sentimental group hug.
