Small screen staple Kaley Cuoco has had her fair share of heartbreaks over the course of her life. She’s had flings, promising relationships that have gone wrong, and even one failed marriage. Could her second marriage to Karl Cook be the ultimate antidote to her past failed relationships? Well, it’s Hollywood and as we’ve all come to see, only time can truly tell. While we keep our fingers crossed in hopes that Kaley and Karl would grow old together, let’s take a trip down memory lane to see the frogs Cuoco had to kiss to get to her Prince charming.
Kaley Cuoco Lovers and Ex-Lovers
Thad Luckinbill 2002
Back in 2002 when Cuoco had just gotten her long-awaited break with 8 Simple Rules, she started off a romantic relationship with actor Thad Luckinbill who was at the time portraying J.T. Hellstrom on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless. Their relationship turned out to be a fling, ending right after it started. Luckinbill married Amelia Heinle in 2007. They’ve been together ever since.
Kevin Zegers 2003 – 2004
Work brought Cuoco and Kevin together. They met on set while they both film The Hollow. However, shortly after the film was released in 2004, they broke up. We did enjoy the red carpet moments they shared with the world. Zegers who went on to star in Gossip Girl married Jaime Feld in 2013 and is a father to twin daughters Blake and Zoe.
Jaron Lowenstein 2005 – 2006
Jaron, the other half of the singing duo Evan and Jaron (the other being his twin brother), swept Cuoco off her feet in 2005. They made many public appearances together, but a year was all it took before it all came crashing down.
Johnny Galecki (2007 – 2009)
Things were quiet from Cuoco romantically for a while. During that period, she was rumored to be dating actor and former model Al Santos and was also linked with 8 Simple Rules guest star, Josh Henderson. Little did the world know that Cuoco was kicking it with her Big Bang Theory co-star and on-screen husband Johnny Galecki. Throughout the two year period which they dated, mum was the word. The world only got to know in 2010, after they ended things amicably and went on to other lovers. Their level of friendship since after they split is… GOALS! He attended her both weddings!
Christopher French (2011)
After ending things with Galecki, Cuoco went on to date singer Christopher French. This time, she didn’t keep it private as they made a couple of red carpet appearances. It ended shortly, but before it did, they recorded a song together. The duet titled “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” was to benefit the Humane Society charity organization. French is now married to former Disney star Ashley Tisdale.
Josh Resnik (2011 – 2012)
Cuoco next fell for addiction specialist Josh Resnik and by October 2011, they had become engaged. Sadly, they never got to walk the aisle together as they broke off their engagement in March 2012.
Bret Bollinger (2012 – 2013)
And then came along Pepper singer Bret Bollinger. Cameras spotted them stealing a kiss while they attended a Lakers game together in May 2012. The flame lasted till January 2013.
Ryan Sweeting (2013 – 2015)
After ending things with Bret Bollinger, Kaly Cuoco was seen holding hands on the streets with British hunk Henry Cavill, Yes! The Superman Henry Cavill. It was an exciting pairing that ended rather too soon. Cuoco then bounced back with the tennis player, Ryan Sweeting. It was her first time of dating an athlete. Their relationship began in June 2013 and by September after three months together, Sweeting popped the question and by December 2013, Cuoco had become Mrs. Sweeting.
Their wedding held on New Year’s Eve in Santa Susana, California was a private yet lavish ceremony. Kaley donned a pink wedding gown for her big day while Ryan kept it simple but classy in an all black tux. They stayed married till September 2013 when they separated. Sweeting’s addiction problem was one of the main reasons for their divorce. In a 2018 interview with Cosmopolitan, Kaley revealed how Ryan became very different from who he was when they first married. She was deeply hurt as she revealed during her appearance on Ellen in February 2016.
Karl Cook (2016 – )
After her separation from Sweeting, Kaley went out on a couple of dates with Arrow actor Paul Blackthorne, however, it didn’t quite amount to anything. Towards the end of 2016, Cuoco found love in the eyes of equestrian Karl Cook whose father is a billionaire businessman Scott Cook. Cook popped the question on Cuoco’s 32nd birthday on November 30, 2017, and on June 30, 2018, they were married in a horse ranch wedding.
