BUZZ: Kaley Cuoco: I wanted to have a baby with Tom Pelphrey ‘when we met’

Motherhood was not “a goal” of Kaley Cuoco’s — until the moment she met Tom Pelphrey.

“When we met, it was instantaneous,” the actress gushed to Emmy magazine in an interview published Friday.

”Tom came along, and something changed.”

The “Big Bang Theory” alum remembers realizing, “Oh, my God, I want to have a kid with you.”

The 37-year-old noted that Pelphrey, 40, also wanted to start a family with her “so badly.”

The couple conceived “right away.”

She explained, “We’re not 20, so we felt like we probably couldn’t wait too long. Then we got so blessed — it happened right away.”

The “Based on a True Story” star, who welcomed daughter Matilda in March, admitted that having a child wasn’t on her “radar” prior to their relationship.

“As a young girl I dreamed of it, but I became involved in my career,” Cuoco said. “[This is] not what I thought my life would be. I love my career and wanted to just keep living my life.”

Before meeting Pelphrey, motherhood was not one of the actress’ “goal[s].”

She and the “Ozark” star began dating in April 2022, with Cuoco telling Extra five months later that it was “love at first sight.”

The “Flight Attendant” star explained, “We have the same management team. My manager actually took me as her guest to the ‘Ozark’ premiere, and I met him there.

“It was like the angels started singing,” she continued. “I was like, ‘Hallelujah.’ It was very magical. … It was perfect.”

Six months later, they revealed a baby girl was on the way.

Cuoco was previously married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016, as well as equestrian Karl Cook from 2018 to 2022.

While wed to the latter, Cuoco told Entertainment Tonight that she “wasn’t quite” ready to become a mom.

“I’m a worker bee right now — kind of my career is my focus and my husband,” she noted. “But we love kids and we love animals, so we’re meant to have children.”
