“Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco is in love. After a surprising divorce from tennis player Ryan Sweeting, Cuoco moved on with equestrian Karl Cooke—and he’s everything she’s ever wanted. Cuoco gushed about the horse rider during a stint on “The Talk” Thursday.
“I can't stop smiling. Life is so, so good,” the actress, 30, said, according to Us Weekly. “I finally found my horse guy. It was very meant to be.”
Cuoco is a horse rider and equestrian, too. They started to date in early March. “He's an amazing rider, amazing equestrian, and a great human. We shared a passion for horses and dogs ... It's been lovely,” she said.
Cuoco wasn’t always as open about her relationship with Cook. In the beginning she tried to be secretive about it, saying they were just “friends.” But sharing kissy pictures on Instagram and Snapchat soon ended that.
While on “The Talk,” she also talked about her divorce from Sweeting. The two were married for 21 months before Cuoco called it quits. Sweeting reportedly suffers from drug addiction.
Even though her whirlwind romance with Sweeting didn’t work out, she’s doesn’t regret her marriage. “[I] wouldn't call it a mistake, it just is what happened in my life, so I'm excited to see what the future holds,” she told CBS “This Morning” in May. Now readers now she was probably talking about her relationship with Cook.
As recent as Monday, she posted a picture of herself with her new beau. She captioned the black-and-white image, “Bliss.” The photo garnered more than 57,000 likes from her 2.9 million followers.
In a different interview, Cuoco joked about the longevity of “Big Bang Theory.” She’s one of the highest paid actress’s on television, raking in $1 million per episode. Even though she would like to see Season 11 happen, she told Jimmy Kimmel is was an expensive question to ask.
