Such a great, funny show Big Band Theory! You can tell the generation gap because some know Johnny Galeki from BBT and some remember him from Roseanne.

Congratulations to Simon, he adds a lot to the show, funny man. I bet he’ll be a great, fun dad.

I love the Howard that Simon spins..I think he and his mom are the funniest characters on that show…congrats on your baby

Johnny Galecki also played Rusty in Christmas Vacation.

Anon on

Nothing wrong with saying they look alike – they do have very similar face shapes and smiles. Even their noses are a bit similar. Completely different eyes though 🙂 Not many surprises in terms of how baby will look!
Congrats to them 🙂

Is it bad that I’m jealous of Simon’s wife? I find him to be amazingly attractive; she’s so lucky to be with him! All in all I’m happy for him; he will be the best of fathers!

Bernadette on

Congratulations to the happy family. Simon adds so much to his character on TBBT. My absolute favorite show – bar none. I just can never get enough of watching this ensemble. Individually they are awesome, but together it is magic. I wish all of them as much happiness as they give to the viewers, and that is unlimited!
