The Season 11 premiere of The Big Bang Theory has fans on edge. Everyone was thrilled to see that Amy said, “Yes” after the cliffhanger proposal. But, the surprise twist got fans even more excited. Actress Mayim Bialik spoke about the premiere.

Amy Farrah Fowler actress Mayim Bialik wrote,”The way our writers are handling Melissa Rauch being pregnant in real life is to make Bernadette shockingly pregnant again even though she and Howard do not really know if they can handle a second baby so soon.”

Bialik added, “This really surprised me, especially since Melissa is so petite and basically looks like she swallowed a grape, she looks so… un-pregnant!”

It’s interesting how the writers of The Big Bang Theory work around major actor changes in real life. In addition to Melissa Raunch being pregnant in real life, they also had to work around Kaley Cuoco a few seasons ago.

Kaley Cuoco once fell off a horse and broke one of her legs. She was out of work for a few weeks so the writers put her behind the island or behind the bar at work. This way, they could avoid having to explain the cast on her leg.

With the new pregnancy, they decided to make it part of the show.

Mayim Bialik also wrote, “ I think it makes sense for Bernadette to be pregnant… I totally get that. And I can’t wait to see how this season unfolds for her character and Howard, as well as for Melissa personally,”

The actress also wrote about how thrilled she is for her friend to be expecting. She only wants “comfort and happiness” for her friend and colleague. Perhaps Mayim Bialik will even offer Rauch some of her unusual parenting techniques.

In addition to being a Ph.D. and mom in real life, Mayim Bialik is known for her parenting beliefs. She writes on her blog about her children. She tries to avoid too much television and believes in using natural products for skin and hair care.

Did you expect for Bernadette to be pregnant again so soon?
