Who Is Kaley Cuoco’s Husband, Karl Cook? Here’s Everything You Need to Know
Kaley Cuoco recently broke the news that she and her hubby still aren’t living under the same roof.
And while that seemingly works for them and their relationship, we realized something: We know very little about Kaley Cuoco’s husband, Karl Cook. Who exactly is he?
The Big Bang Theory star has been open about her relationship for years, so we decided it was only right to try and find out everything we can about the actress’s husband of over a year.
Here, our official deep-dive into Karl Cook.
1. WHO IS Kaley cuoco’s HUSBAND, Karl?
Cook has been riding horses since he was only 8 years old, and now, he’s quite the accomplished equestrian.
He regularly competes in—and wins—competitions. In 2016, Karl and his horse Farrari won the blue ribbon in the SmartPak Grand Prix and the UltrOz Jumper, according to E! News.
The 28-year-old also comes from a pretty successful family. His dad Scott Cook founded Intuit, the tax software company, and is worth around $2 billion, according to Forbes.
Aside from his horses, Cook also has a love for art. "I enjoy photography and whenever I take a trip anywhere I usually take my camera with me,” he told Phelps Sports. “I am also into making bowls, cups, tables and many other things on a wood lathe. I call it 'lazy turning.' Instead of having to move a carving tool around and carve into wood I just sit there and hold a tool under the wood as the machine turns the wood.”
Clearly, a man of many talents.
2. WHERE DID HE MEET Kaley?
Considering Cuoco has been riding horses since she was 15, we can see why the duo hit it off after meeting at a horse show.
According to Bustle, Cuoco opened up in a September 2016 interview on The Talk about their shared love for horses (though we aren't quite sure where that is exactly).
“I finally found my horse guy. It was very meant to be. He’s an amazing rider, amazing equestrian and a great human. We shared a passion for horses and dogs … It’s been lovely.”
Seems like a match made in equestrian heaven.
3. WHERE DOES HE LIVE?
As we briefly mentioned before, the duo currently does not live together. Cuoco is living in New York as she films her next project, while Cook is living in a separate location that meets the needs of his business and horses (though we aren't quite sure where that is exactly).
“I made headlines saying that we don’t live together yet. And people went crazy,” Cuoco said. “They couldn’t believe it.” However, the 33-year-old actress revealed that their current living situation is working out great. “We just haven’t been under the same roof. But by the way, it’s been working great and we love it. We love it, so I don’t know why people have such an issue.”
The couple is in the process of building their “dream house” and will hopefully be moving in together very soon.
4. WHEN DID THEY GET ENGAGED & Married?
Cook proposed on the actress’s 32nd birthday in 2017 and shared a sweet video on Instagram of her crying hysterically.
“Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me,” he captioned the post. “This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for Kaley as well… if she said yes!”
He revealed to People that he treated Kaley to a romantic candlelit dinner at their home, cooked the meal (of her favorite foods) and then popped the question.
They tied the knot in June 2018, and their San Diego wedding took place at a horse stable (fitting). The Big Bang Theory actress wore a Reem Acra ensemble with a princess cape tied at the neck, while Cook looked dapper in a classic black tux.
5. DO THEY HAVE ANY CHILDREN TOGETHER?
Although the couple has no kids yet, it’s definitely not out of the question.
“I’m definitely—I’m not there yet,” Cuoco told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m not quite there yet but I know that I will be 'cause I love kids. But I’m a worker bee right now—kind of my career is my focus and my husband. But, we love kids and we love animals so we’re meant to have children.”
6. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW DO THEY KEEP THE ROMANCE ALIVE?
It’s clear that their common passions and interests play a huge role in making their relationship work, but it also seems like the duo shares another important quality: a strong sense of humor.
Both Cuoco and Cook have been known to use social media to share special (and funny) moments about their relationship.
Back in June, the Big Bang Theory star's husband posted a slideshow of candid images of his wife to his Instagram including video of the 33-year-old actress having an eyelash disaster, a snap of her with food (lettuce or spinach?) in her teeth and, of course, one of her asleep.
The couple who laughs together, stays together, right?
