Kaley Cuoco's boyfriend Tom Pelphrey is celebrating his very first Father's Day this Sunday, and the star is making sure he gets all the love he deserves.

Both the actress and the actor became first-time parents earlier this year, when they welcomed daughter Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey on March 30.

The two first met last spring at the premiere of Ozark's finale season, and celebrated their one-year anniversary in April. They publicly confirmed their relationship in May of 2022.

For Tom's first Father's Day, Kaley took to Instagram with a special tribute to him alongside a batch of adorable new photos of baby Matilda, highlighting Tom's first months as a first-time dad.

The Big Bang Theory alum first shared a photo where Tom is holding Matilda, who is still in her hospital gear, while he is fittingly wearing a t-shirt that has the words "Waltzing Matilda" on it, an Australian style of "bush ballad" originally written in 1895 by Banjo Paterson.

Still, despite the whirlwind nature of it all, she remembered that her and Tom are "like, boom, boom, boom. We're in sync," as she further explained: "We're not 20 anymore," adding: "We were like, 'We doing this or not?'"

Now that they are some months into being parents, it has only solidified their hopes of expanding their family, and when she was asked whether she hopes to have more kids in the future, she answered with an adamant: "Yeah, we do."
