Kaley Cuoco really doesn’t like to waste any time! After getting engaged to boyfriend Ryan Sweeting just a matter of weeks after their first date, the 27-year-old Big Bang Theory star surprised fans once again with her spontaneous spirit when she decided to tie the knot with the tennis star on live TV — well, kind of.
According to reports, the actress visited Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show to discuss a few of her favorite things — including her 26-year-old beau. “I’m very, very happy,” Cuoco squeaked. “Life is so good. I cannot even tell you. We are so happy.” The actress glowed are she talked about her relationship with Sweeting.
“How long have you known him?” the talk show host asked. Cuoco admitted that her romance with the Florida native had unraveled rather quickly. "It's newer. It's newer. It's looking a little crazy to some people," she said. DeGeneres than comforted the star by confessing she had also found herself in the same situation 9 years ago with her wife Portia de Rossi. “When you feel it, you know it.”
Cuoco then shared how she and her future husband met. “I had kind of an interesting situation over the summer. And I was kind of in a weird place. A very close mutual friend of ours had said, ‘Have you met this guy Ryan?’ I was just not in a good place to meet anyone. I said I’m taking time away from love for awhile — it was very sad.”
But despite her original mindset and nerves, Cuoco had dinner with the man who would one day meet her at the altar. “We go and have a diner date and we’re still on our first date. He never went home!” Yes, that’s right! Sweeting hasn’t been back to Florida since he met Cuoco. “He had back surgery right when I met him, that’s what he was slightly coming out here for, to meet with his doctor, and I kind of nursed him back to health. You know by day two I was like, oh my God. It was so unbelievable. I said, this is it, this is it,” Cuoco recalled.
That’s when DeGeneres had the bright idea that Cuoco and her soon-to-be-hubby should stop waiting for the big day and get married right now — in her studio! Thirty seconds later, Cuoco was sporting a tennis ball veil and saying “I do” to Sweeting in front of DeGeneres’ writer who had been ordained.
