Pelphrey has been romantically linked to Cuoco since May — when Cuoco shared Polaroids of their relationship. "Life lately ♥️🌲 🐾 💫 'the sun breaks through the clouds, rays of gold slipping into my eyes and heart, rays of yellow to break the grey,'" Cuoco captioned the series of snaps.

Cuoco was previously married to Karl Cook, though the pair filed for divorce in September. She told Glamour in April she has no plans to walk down the aisle again.

"I would love to have a long-lasting relationship or a partnership. But I will never get married again. Absolutely not. You can literally put that on the cover," she said.
