Johnny Galecki, Married, Wife, Dating, Girlfriend, Gay
In case you are wondering if the man is dating Penny in real life, the shocker is that the two of them have actually dated in real life. Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki actually dated from 2008 to 2010 before finally breaking. While they dated, their relationship suffered because they kept it very secretive as they didn’t want people to talk about it, even as she remained his girlfriend for up to 2 years.
Before this relationship, Galecki also dated other women including Sara Gilbert whom he dated in 1992 and Laura Harris from 1996 to 1998. Ari Graynor is the next woman that was his girlfriend, then Kelsey Harper, before coming to Kaley Cuoco. After the real-life Galecki and Cuoco separated, he has gone on to date other women, even though at the moment, he still doesn’t have a wife and he has never been married.
One thing that people keep asking is whether or not Johnny Galecki is gay. This is understandable because Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper in Big Bang Theory is gay). But then, Johnny is not gay.
