Kaley Cuoco Says She's 'Really Happy' With New Boyfriend Karl Cook

After divorce from Ryan Sweeting, the "Big Bang Theory" star is "really happy."

— -- Things seem to be heating up between "The Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco and her equestrian beau, Karl Cook.

In an interview with People magazine, Cuoco, who recently finalized her divorce from Ryan Sweeting, spoke about her new relationship.

Not surprisingly, horseback-riding dates are involved.

"It's funny, he's either the one riding or it's me, so we're rarely doing it together," she told People. "But recently we did go on a little trail ride date. It was adorable."

But their shared love of horses is more than just a romantic activity.

"When you share something so special, some sort of connection -- for us, it's horses, but anything two people share -- you have that common goal and you know that you want the same things in life, day to day, and in the future," Cuoco said.

"It just sets you on a better path. Having a lot in common is really important and we definitely have a lot in common," she added. "I think that that's what makes us so strong and really happy."
