Well, that took long enough!
How I Met Your Mother has kept this secret for eight long seasons, spanning a grand total of 183 episodes, but we can finally put a face to the show’s infamous Mother! Portrayed by actress Cristin Milioti, Ted’s wife was revealed in the final few seconds of last night’s finale.
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
While fans will have to wait till next season to learn more about Cristin on-screen, here’s the lowdown on the actress!
She’s a Tony-nominated Broadway star, following her stage performance in Once! Cristin has also played a version of Paris Hilton during a guest stint on 30 Rock, and she’s even married to Leo DiCaprio in the upcoming film, The Wolf of Wall Street!
What’s more, she shares Carrie Bradshaw’s penchant for men who can build furniture — ahem, Aidan — and is notorious for getting her idioms confused! Ahh, we love her already!
Sounds like quite the catch!
