And, while fans must patiently wait to see how everything will turn out, here are all the reasons why we already know Howard and Bernadette will make great parents.

First, as Bernadette admitted in the same episode, she's already used to buying baby-sized clothing because of Howard's small stature, so it should be a smooth transition into shopping for an infant. In fact, Howard might even be able to share clothes with the little one when he gets a wee bit bigger.
