1. Kaley Is Proud of How He Fights Against Divorce Rumors


The couple has endured divorce rumors since they got married in December of 2013. People assumed that since they had a whirlwind of a romance and married after only dating for three months, that they were headed for failure.

In early September, Perez Hilton reported exclusively that he heard about an after-Emmy argument they had. A witness told the site, “They were very angry — going back and forth at each other…Kaley — who’d been drinking rosé — whispered ‘Please don’t leave me’ to Ryan, then got up to go to the bathroom. After she walked away, Ryan put his finger to his head and pretended to shoot himself. Twice.”

However, Cuoco maintains that she knew from the very beginning that he was the one for her. She gushed to Entertainment Tonight, “From day one, I just knew immediately and it’s been magic. We have all the same family friends. We grew up with the same people, we just never met. So I kind of feel that I’ve known him my whole life.”

As divorce rumors swirl around the couple, Cuoco posted this message on Instagram on April 5th:

Today is Easter/ It’s about love, gratitude, and rejoicing in all that we have-so that’s what im going to do- I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet- this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant “conversation” regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make. Im so proud of his passion and his inner strength to fight back, but most of all iam proud to be his wife-so all of you who take it upon yourselves to trash our marriage, daily workings of our relationship and everything in between, go ahead and keep doing it, cause it only makes us stronger- if you were smart, you would take a look at your own marriage, relationship, job etc, instead of focusing on someone else’s. You might be surprised at what you find. “You know my name, not my story”

She also posted the picture above with the caption, “We are totally getting divorced, can’t you tell!!?! 4 weeks apart and finally reunited – I missed this guy more than anything !! #rumors #notpregnant #totallymarried.”

2. He Knows Kaley’s First Kiss

Sweeting is a tennis player, who turned pro in 2007. He was born in Nassau, Bahamas, and, according to his ATP World Tour profile, he began playing the sport at age 6.

Lester Cook, a fellow tennis player, was Cuoco’s first kiss. Watch the interview above where the couple explain the coincidence.

“Ryan knows him him…It’s a full circle. It’s a big family. It’s a polygamist family,” Cuoco began.

“He’s a tennis player. I grew up playing tennis. Lester is too…so they knew each other,” she continued.

Star Magazine reported that he is benefiting greatly from his wife’s money. “Ryan knows that his tennis career is all but over,” an alleged insider told the magazine. “He doesn’t have the ambition to compete for the big bucks. Any why should he? He has a rich wife.”

As is well known, Cuoco signed a contract before Season 8 that earns her $1 million per episode of The Big Bang Theory for the 72 episodes in Seasons 8 through 10.

4. He Loves ‘The Bachelor’

In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, she dished on Sweeting’s guilty pleasure. She realized the severity of his Bachelor addiction after coming home one night to see the house prepared for a special night.

“Monday night I get home, long day at work, my husband’s waiting for me. I get home it’s really nice in the house, we had ordered food….,” she began.

She continued, “I go, ‘Babe the house looks so great,’ He goes, ‘Guess what tonight is…It’s Bachelor night baby!'”

5. Kaley Forgot to Thank Him, So Johnny Stepped In

In 2015, Cuoco won her second People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comedic TV Actress. After thanking her castmates, everyone at CBS and the fans, she mentioned her film The Wedding Ringer, and then left the stage. Watch the clip below.

Later in the evening, when The Big Bang Theory won and the cast all took the stage, Johnny Galecki, who is also Cuoco’s ex-boyfriend, said, “Hey, just real quick, I’d like to take a brief moment, because Kaley forgot during her speech to thank her husband, Ryan. You are my heart, and I can’t imagine what I’d be without you.”

She told Entertainment Tonight, in the clip above, “I’m feeling really guilty about that right now…I got so overwhelmed and self involved that I totally forgot him.”
