Kaley Cuoco’s Dating Timeline

While acting in her role as Penny in Big Bang, Cuoco privately dated her co-star, Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter) for about two years, until December 2009. This also coordinated with the time that the two stars’ characters dated on the show! Since their breakup, the couple remained on good terms, as she told CBS Watch in September 2010. In 2011, she was engaged to Josh Resnik, an addiction specialist, but they called it off by March 2012. After three months of dating, Cuoco was then engaged to professional tennis player, Ryan Sweeting in September 2013. On December 31, 2013, they were married in Santa Susana, California, however almost two years later, September 15, 2015, they mutually decided to divorce. The decision was finalized in May 2016.

Cuoco told The Talk earlier this year that she is in a relationship with an equestrian named Karl Cook, and it’s evident the couple are very much in love. Just check out her Instagram! Her username is even “@NormanCook”! She told the magazine, “We met at a horse show. I finally found my horse guy. I know. It was meant to be. He’s an amazing, amazing rider. Rider and jumper. Amazing equestrian and great human. We share obviously, our passion for horses and dogs and all that. And it’s been lovely. So great.” Check out some of the images below that she shared ahead of her 31st birthday!
