Kaley Cuoco “can’t stop smiling.”
The Big Bang Theory star gushed about her professional equestrian boyfriend Karl Cook during a sit-down on The Talk on Thursday and said of being with her new beau, “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,” Cuoco, 30, said of Cook. “It was very meant to be.”
The horse and animal advocate, whose divorce to tennis player Ryan Sweeting was finalized in May, complimented her boyfriend’s equestrian skills: “He’s an amazing, amazing rider and jumper, amazing equestrian and a great human. We share our passion for horses and dogs and all that and it’s been lovely, so I’m so happy.”
“I think even when I went through my big breakup – even my friends that know me so well – I might have said things like, ‘I’m never going to love again. I’m never going to get married again.’ You say these things. But the people that know you best, they know my heart and that’s just not me,” Cuoco said of finding love again post-divorce. “I wear my heart on my sleeve. I knew even deep down, I know this is just not the right thing. The right thing is coming for me, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.”
With a BBT season 10 premiere date set for Sept. 19 on CBS, the series’ star is grateful that she “got through” her divorce and found love again.
“We all go through these things, but a lot of people don’t see everyone’s personal life played out – I mean you guys understand – so a lot of people go through this stuff on their own and I’m just glad that I got through it,” she said. “I couldn’t be happier. It’s like I saw the light somehow.”
The Talk airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET on CBS.
