‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 7: Kaley Cuoco, Ryan Sweeting marry on New Year’s Eve

The Big Bang Theory -Mrs. Carter: Kaley Cuoco closed out 2013 in a big way.

After a brief period of dating and also a very brief engagement to Ryan Sweeting, the star of “The Big Bang Theory” (pictured with Mayim Bialik) married the tennis pro in a ceremony on New Year’s Eve in front of their friends and family. She posted a photo on her Instagram account (which she has listed under her “alias” Norman Cook), referring to herself and Ryan as “The Sweetings.” This marks the first time that Kaley has been married, though she has been engaged before.

One of the reasons for the brief engagement here was very simple, as Kaley said recently that she just felt like Sweeting was the right person for her, and once she figured that out, there was not really any need to wait for a long time in order to make the relationship into a marriage. This makes a lot of sense and we are big fans of this, because if you know, you know. Some of her more high-profile ex-boyfriends include “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill (who she only dated briefly before Sweeting) as well as a lengthy relationship with her TV co-star Johnny Galecki that they both kept under wraps out of fear of doing something to disrupt the show.

Kaley will be going back to work early this year on the sitcom, which has turned into a runaway smash and a significant source of income. She and the rest of the major cast (at least the ones who have been there since the beginning) are in the process now of negotiating new deals that could make them some of the highest-paid people on TV; not only that, but it could lock them into working on the CBS show until a tenth season. There is still plenty of time for these deals to be done, though, so really anything could happen.
