The Big Bang baby is here!

Simon Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne welcomed their first child, daughter Adeline, on Tuesday, May 8, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The actor, who plays Howard WolowitzΒ on The Big Bang Theory, and his wife were hoping to have a natural birth with a midwife — if Helberg, 31, could find the correct delivery room.

“I walked into the wrong examination room,” he told Conan O’Brien about a prenatal visit gone wrong.

“I’m bad enough at facial recognition … I saw more that day than I cared to. I didn’t recognize her from that angle, whoever it was and I didn’t ask.”

Congrats!! Love the name Adeline, glad they didn’t name it after a kitchen appliance or something. A lot of these stars name their children horribly. Very happy for their sweet family πŸ™‚

Aww congratulations. My daughters name is Adaline- obviously I’m a bit biased when I say how much I love the name!

Sweet name, I wonder whether it is pronounced Adeline to rhyme with clean, or Adeline to rhyme with mine. either is cute.
