Who Is the Mother on How I Met Your Mother?

Meet How I Met Your Mother's Mother!

The season-eight finale of How I Met Your Mother aired this week, and while we didn't get to see Barney and Robin's wedding, we got something even better — a glimpse of the mother! Not just her boots, not just her umbrella, but a long look at her face in all her her soon-to-be-motherly glory.

I don't want to spoil it completely, but to find out who she is, just

.

So the actress is Cristin Milioti, who hasn't been seen in much (other than on Broadway, where she was nominated for a Tony for her work in Once). You may recognize her from The Sopranos or an episode of 30 Rock, but she's a relative newcomer aside from that. I'm a bit torn; part of me wishes they had cast a better-known actress, especially considering the runners-up have included Jennifer Morrison and Rachel Bilson. On the other hand, it's hard to be biased against an actress I haven't seen before. How do you feel about the big reveal?
