The Big Bang Theory

It appears some congratulations are in order!

Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) just dropped a bombshell on Big Bang Theory tonight, but at least it's a cute one! Turns out, she's pregnant! 

The news came after she and Howard (Simon Helberg) spent their Valentine's Day trying to revive the rabbit they found in their hot tub, which makes plenty of sense if you don't think about it too hard. They named the rabbit Valentino, and Bernadette let their new friend in on her secret.

She didn't tell Howard yet, however, since Howard was bitten by the rabbit and had to go to the hospital, so we have quite a bit of freaking out to look forward to on his end. 

Elsewhere in tonight's episode, Penny and Leonard were facing the facts that they're getting older, while Sheldon and Amy hosted a live episode of Fun with Flags that went horribly awry, partly thanks to Leonard and Penny crashing it. Raj also decided it was time to dump Emily for Claire, right around the same time that Claire got back together with her boyfriend. 

Now, here's our big question: what are Howard and Bernadette going to name their baby? On a show like The Big Bang Theory, that baby's not just going to have any old name, so here are our predictions/suggestions: 

Han Wolowitz
Leia Wolowitz
Kylo Wolowitz
Spiderman Wolowitz 
Jessica Jones Wolowitz
Harrison Ford Wolowitz
Gollum Wolowitz
Patrick Stewart
Khaleesi Wolowitz 
Watchersonthe Wolowitz 

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.

How do you think Howard will react to the news, and what's your pick for the name? Sound off in the comments!
