8+ Random Facts About Kaley Cuoco's Relationships Fans Didn't Know

Say Kaley Cuoco's name and her time as Penny on The Big Bang Theory immediately comes to mind.

But she's also known for her love life, which has been rather complicated at times. This includes two marriages, one divorce, a breakup on set, and even a brief fling with Superman!

Ready to learn more? Here are 10+ facts you didn't know about the actress's relationships.

Kaley Cuoco rose to quick fame thanks to her role on *The Big Bang Theory*, and because of that, people love to learn everything there is to know about her.

That includes everything about her personal life.

There are a ton of interesting facts about her past relationships that fans probably didn't know! Let's get into it!

1. She dated Johnny Galecki from *The Big Bang Theory* secretly for two years.

That on-screen chemistry wasn't just for show. These two hit it off in real-life shortly after meeting.

Sadly, they broke up two years after this. Playing an on-screen couple wasn't easy post-breakup. It actually caused some issues in real life.

That's because Johnny and Kaley's steamy bedroom scenes kept messing with their breakup.

"We were a little like, ‘We were trying to end the relationship and it kept falling back in,'" she said in an interview with Haute Living.

Thankfully, they were able to be professional and weather it.

"We got over it really fast, and we’re closer than ever now. It could have gone either way, and I was really proud of us.”

2. She got engaged to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting after only three months.

Their engagement wasn't the only thing that was short-lived. They ended up getting married months later in an intimate New Year's Eve ceremony.

Kaley filed for divorce 21 months later.

Back then, she even said that Sweeting ruined marriage for her.

"I honestly thought I wouldn't get married again," Cuoco revealed in a May 2018 interview with Cosmopolitan.

"My ex ruined that word for me. I married someone the first time who completely changed," she said. Yikes!

"The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met," she continued.

"And that wasn't my fault — that was his. I knew how much I had to give and how much I wanted to receive."

Thankfully, she eventually met her current husband, Karl Cook.

3. Kaley removed the tattoo she got for ex-husband, Ryan Sweeting.

Shortly after their nuptials, Kaley got a tattoo of their wedding date (December 31, 2013) in Roman numerals on her back.

But after their messy split, she wanted to erase all memories of her and Ryan, starting with the tattoo.

She had it replaced with a moth-like insect.

When asked by Ellen DeGeneres why she picked a bug, she said, "Because it was big enough to cover the numbers...the wings. Big wings," she joked.

"It's just what I picked out when I was there."

4. She and her husband, Karl Cook, met over their shared love of horses.

The pair met at a horse show in 2016.

"I finally found my horse guy. It was very meant to be," she said while on The Talk.

"He's an amazing rider, amazing equestrian and a great human. We shared a passion for horses and dogs … It's been lovely."

Given their love of horses, it was a natural choice for the couple to get married in a horse stable.

5. The animal lovers tied the knot in an intimate wedding at a horse stable near San Diego, California.

Cuoco and Cook delivered their own wedding vows and the pair were married by Kaley's sister, Briana Cuoco.

6. Kaley and her husband don't live together.

Suffice to say, they have a very unconventional marriage.

"We have a very unconventional marriage, you know, we have different locations that we are at a lot," Kaley told E!.

While this probably seems weird to most, it works for them.

"We are not together every single day, and I think personally, it's important. It works well for us," she said.

Another celeb it's worked for is Gwyneth Paltrow, who lived separately from her husband for a year.

7. Kaley and her husband adopted a dwarf mini horse together.

Sooo cute!

This little fella's name is Shmooshy. He is just one of the married couple's many rescue animals.

The mini horse even has its own Instagram account with over 104k followers!

8. For their first wedding anniversary, they celebrated with Taco Bell and red wine.


Who needs roses, a fancy steak dinner, and champagne when you've got Taco Bell and red wine?? "Best anniversary dinner," they wrote.

9. Kaley's husband loves to troll her online.

Karl's taking a page out of Ryan Reynolds' troll book.

If you take a look at his Instagram, he has tons of hilariously unflattering photos of Kaley. This includes ones of her being caught off guard, snoring, and so on.

By the way, Kaley is fully aware of her hubbie's trolling behavior.

"He’s his own man," Cuoco had joked in an interview with ET. "He makes his own Instagram decisions. He’s bold.”

When he posted this unflattering picture, Kaley got her revenge by joking about divorce.

10. She dated Henry Cavill for 10 days.

How could you let him go, girl?!

Well, a lot of this could be blamed on how high-profile their relationship was.

"I had no one following me until I met Superman," she told Cosmopolitan about their short-lived romance.

"I've been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything," she continued.

"There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like several months ago. The recognition was crazy."

11. She is still great friends with Johnny Galecki.

As you can see, her ex and her new hubby are even good friends and love to cuddle up next to one another!

Even Galecki has said that they are forever in each other's lives.

12. She also dated a number of other famous people!

She has dated Christopher French, Kevin Zegers, Bret Bollinger, Josh Resnik, Thad Luckinbill, Jaron Lowenstein, Paul Blackthorne, Al Santos, and Josh Henderson.

Oh, to be a single person in Hollywood, am I right?
