Johnny Galecki’s baby hasn’t even been born yet, but the actor is getting a head start on dad life. The Big Bang Theory star posed for two photos with his baby godson, Huckleberry Houser, as they sat on a motorcycle, and Instagram is melting down over the adorable slideshow.
In the photos, Galecki is wearing all black, sporting a leather jacket and boots, and his godson is zipped up in a blue onesie. The two are perched on Galecki’s motorcycle for the sweet shots.
In the caption of the pics, the 44-year-old actor referred baby Huck as his “right-hand man” and promised they will share many more adventures together. Galecki tagged the baby’s parents, Randy and Tatiana Houser, in the photo.
Fans and famous friends commented on the photo as they noted how comfortable Galecki looked cradling the baby.
“That’s a dad right there,” Galecki’s close friend Josh Katz wrote of the actor.
“Working on that dad life,” added pal Zach Myers. “I’d at least get a helmet for the baby tho.”
Galecki’s pregnant girlfriend, Alaina Marie Meyer, posted a heart emoji.
But perhaps the best comment came from Randy Houser, the father of baby Huck.
“Raising Arizona. Bring me back my baby,” he wrote.
Fans know that Galecki and Meyer are expecting a baby boy. While the due date has not yet been revealed, recent photos of Meyer show a burgeoning baby bump.
In May, Galecki announced to his Instagram followers that he and his girlfriend of one year were going to have their first child. Soon after, the lovebirds posted an announcement of the baby’s gender to their social media. The snaps showed the couple had a painting party that featured several shades of blue paint. By the end of their messy reveal, the two celebrities’ coveralls, hands, and faces were covered in varying hues of blue, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Galecki previously dished that he may have accidentally swayed the gender of his child. During a guest appearance on The Talk, The Conners alum explained that he got a pink manicure to sway some “girl” energy his way after he found out Meyer was pregnant.
Galecki went on to say that, after he wrapped the series finale of The Big Bang Theory, he threw some blue dye in his hair as a way to say goodbye to his character, Leonard Hofstadter.
“Then, I got superstitious that I was, like, manifesting a boy, when I kind of prefer a girl,” Galecki told The Talk. “So, I painted my nails pink to try to even out the energy there.”
Of course, Galecki is thrilled for his baby boy. At least he definitely has that dad pose down.
