The eighth season of ‘HIMYM’ ended with fans doing just that — meeting the mother! But who is she? Drumroll please…
OK, spoilers ahead! No, seriously, stop reading if you don’t want to know who Ted’s (Josh Radnor) future wife will be played by.
Though we still don’t know much about the lady in question — like, you know, her name — we do know she’ll be played by Broadway actress Cristin Milioti, best known for her performance in the Tony Award-winning musical Once.
The formerly NYC-based actress also appeared on 30 Rock, Nurse Jackie and The Sopranos.
