Kaley Cuoco Is Engaged to Boyfriend Karl Cook — Watch Her Emotional Reaction to the Proposal
Kaley Cuoco is engaged — on her 32nd birthday!
The Big Bang Theory star’s now-fiancé Karl Cook announced the couple’s engagement on Instagram Thursday, sharing a video of his fiancée’s reaction to his proposal.
“Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me. This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for kaley as well… of she said yes!” the professional equestrian captioned his footage of Cuoco crying uncontrollably.
“We’re engaged!” the actress says in the video.
“Still crying every part of this night has been perfection just like you @mrtankcook I love you forever!” Cuoco captioned the same video on her social media.
Cook also shared a close-up shot of the gorgeous pear-shaped diamond ring he presented his bride-to-be after nearly two years of dating.
“I am so so so happy. Thank you @nadis_diamonds for making the greatest ring I could hope for. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you thank you,” he said.
Just hours before sharing the proposal on social media, Cook teased Cuoco with a fake ring while shopping at Target.
“On my loves birthday I got her everything she has always wanted….now judging by her face maybe not, it’s the thought that counts right,” he shared.
Cook had his love in tears even before he gave her the real ring as he treated the Big Bang Theory star to a romantic candlelit dinner at their home. Cook prepared the meal himself and even made a menu as if they were at a restaurant. He made sure to serve all her favorite foods, including Moose Tracks ice cream.
Cuoco and Cook, who both love of horses, started dating in spring 2016 and made their first public appearance as a couple in September that same year. She split from husband Ryan Sweeting in the fall of 2015, filing for divorce after 21 months of marriage. (The proceedings were finalized in May 2016.)
Asked by PEOPLE in August, if marriage is in the cards again, Cuoco said that she’s “open to anything.”
“I don’t know what the path is going to take,” she said. “But I’m very happy right now.”
