- Kaley Cuoco married Karl Cook in June.
- She told Women’s Health that she still maintains her independence.
- She said she’s secure knowing that she is financially stable.
Kaley Cuoco is happily married, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be on her own.
In an interview with Women’s Health, the 32-year-old “Big Bang Theory” star said she’s independent from her husband, Karl Cook.
“I don’t need Karl for anything,” she said. “If Karl left me tomorrow, I’d be fine. And he knows that, and he would be fine too.”
Cuoco married Cook, an equestrian, in a stunning ceremony in San Diego, California, in June. The two met at a horse show after bumping into each other and became engaged in November 2017 after two years of dating. Cuoco told Women’s Health that he didn’t watch the “Big Bang Theory,” so he was unaware of who she was at first, but they quickly bonded over horses and life.
“We bonded a lot over having the same kind of outlooks on life, insecurities, dating,” she said. “It was great because he never kissed my a– at all, and he never cared about any of that. He loved that I loved horses. It became a big talking point for us.”
Cuoco’s mum suggested she try horseback riding, and she quickly found a passion for the sport. She now has nine horses and her own barn and shows the horses around the country.
The actress was previously married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, but they divorced in 2016. She told Cosmo that she didn’t expect to get married again.
“I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again,” she said. “My ex ruined that word for me.”
But she is happy and secure in her new relationship.
“I want to see him,” she told Women’s Health. “I like knowing, though, that I’m [financially] set, because I’ve taken it upon myself to do that. I like to tell my friends, ‘Always make sure you have your life going, and that you’re number one, so that anyone who comes into it – husband or boyfriend or girlfriend, however you roll – that’s just an added bonus to something you’re already creating.'”
