“Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco and her boyfriend, Karl Cook, looked happy and in love when they attended the 2016 Critics Choice Awards on Sunday, Dec. 11.

Ahead of the event, Cuoco and Cook were photographed holding hands and being affectionate with each other. The actress wore a crocheted pink dress, while Cook donned a black tuxedo for the event.

Rumors started swirling earlier this year that Cuoco and Cook were dating, but the actress and the professional equestrian never confirmed the status of their relationship. However, Cuoco later shared a photo of her kissing Cook on her Instagram, and this served as the couple’s official announcement that they were together. In September, the actress and Cook made their red carpet debut at the Longines Master Los Angeles Gala.

Meanwhile, Cuoco, who was previously married to Ryan Sweeting, expressed her fondness for Cook during an interview with Sharon Osbourne on “The Talk.” “I’m so happy… I can’t stop smiling, life is so, so good. We met at a horse show, I finally found my horse guy. It was very meant to be. He’s an amazing rider, amazing equestrian, and a great human being. We share a passion for horses and dogs… It’s been lovely,” she said.

Cuoco also admitted that she previously swore off dating and getting married because of her bitter divorce from Sweeting. However, a part of her also knew that she was meant to be with one person for the rest of her life. When she finally moved on from her ex, she met Cook, and everything just fell into place. “I’m just glad I got through it. I couldn’t be happier,” she said.

In other news, Cuoco will star in Thursday night’s episode of “Big Bang Theory” Season 10, titled “The Birthday Synchronicity.” In the episode, Cuoco’s Penny will be one of the first to learn that Bernadette’s (Melissa Rauch) water broke and that she’s ready to give birth.

“Big Bang Theory” Season 10, episode 11 will air on CBS on Dec. 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
