On the season finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," viewers were finally shown the face of the woman Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) has been talking about for eight frickin' seasons.

She is Cherry Hill's own Cristin Miloti!

Milioti is a Cherry Hill High School East alum, graduating in 2003. Milioti's credits include "30 Rock," "The Good Wife," "Nurse Jackie" and her Tony-nominated role in "Once," based on the 2006 romantic weepy, where she played the main character of The Girl. She lost out to Audra McDonald in "Gershwin's Porgy and Bess," who if you're going to lose out to anyone, that's a good person to lose to.

While cynical HIMYM viewers may think Milioti is a red herring (there have been quite of few of those in sitcom's overly-long run), CBS confirmed to Buzzfeed that Milioti is, in fact, the titular momma.

HIMYM was renewed for a ninth season, so you'll have all next year to get to know the yellow umbrella-toting, bass-playing future wife of Ted.
