Kaley Cuoco dating life: The Big Bang Theory star gushes about boyfriend Karl Cook

Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook have been dating since April.

Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco has opened up about her boyfriend, professional equestrian Karl Cook. The duo have been dating since April.

During an interview with People, the 30-year-old actress revealed that the two bonded over their love for horses. She said: "When you share something so special, some sort of connection - for us, it's horses, but anything two people share - you have that common goal and you know that you want the same things in life, day to day, and in the future."

"It just sets you on a better path. Having a lot in common is really important and we definitely have a lot in common. I think that that's what makes us so strong and really happy," Cuoco added.

"It's funny, he's either the one riding or it's me, so we're rarely doing it together," she explained. "But recently we did go on a little trail ride date. It was adorable. We hadn't really done that yet. One is usually cheering for the other so that was kind of cute to go out together. We totally held hands. It was very dorky!"

In September 2015, Cuoco had filed for divorce from Ryan Sweeting after 18 months of marriage. The Bahamian-born American professional tennis player had proposed to the actress, who is best known for her role as Penny in the award-winning comedy, a few days after the couple made their red carpet debut at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. They got married on 31 December 2013.
