Inside Johnny Galecki's Split From Alaina Meyer

Johnny Galecki and Alaina Meyer are going their separate ways just days after celebrating their son's first birthday, a source told People. The soon-to-be former couple plans to co-parent their son, Avery.

Galecki and Meyer first announced their pregnancy in May 2019 through a statement to People. "We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world," the couple said. "We ask that you please respect our privacy during this celebratory time for us and our families. There truly is love out there for all," they added. "We hope ours is the ember of yours, as we feel yours is the ember of ours."

Upon Avery's arrival, the then-couple shared a sweet photo of his hands intertwined with theirs on Instagram. "With full and grateful hearts we welcome our beautiful son into this incredible world. Thank you for all of your love and support," The Big Bang Theory star wrote.

While their split seems sudden, they have been seemingly absent from each other's social media accounts for months. Here is a closer look inside Johnny Galecki's split from Alaina Meyer.

Johnny Galecki and Alaina Meyer want their split to be private

Neither Johnny Galecki nor Alaina Meyer have publicly addressed their separation. In fact, they both seem to be keeping their split to themselves. After the news was released, Galecki posted on his Instagram about missing performing in front of crowds, while Meyer's most recent post at the time of the announcement was a tribute to their son on his first birthday. "[H]appy born day to my baby boy. this has been the gnarliest year of my life, with the highest highs and the lowest lows but even in the hardest moments especially after loosing ryan, there was a healthy baby boy that needed me and kept me grounded and centered," she reflected. The post included two photos featuring Galecki. In Galecki's can, however, the last photo of Meyer on his page was a belated Easter post that also included Avery. 

Galecki and Meyer were first linked in August 2018 when they vacationed in the Bahamas together, per People. While the two did not tag each other in photos, Galecki posted a photo of him hugging a girl with a large thigh tattoo on the beach. The next month, they made their romance Instagram official by sharing a photo looking lovingly into each other's eyes.

Considering there are no further comments or reports of domestic issues between the pair, it's safe to say the split is amicable so far, and they are focused on giving their son a happy life.
