Who: Actress and producer Kaley Cuoco, 36, and former tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, 34.
How They Met: Following a summer fling with actor Henry Cavill in 2013, Kaley was set up with Ryan a month later on a blind date by their mutual friend.
“I had kind of an interesting situation over the summer, and I was kind of in a weird place and a very close mutual friend of ours said, ‘Oh my god, have you met this guy Ryan?'” she recalled during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I was just not in a good place to meet anyone. I said, ‘I’m not ready. I’m taking time away from love for a while.’ I was very sad. And they said, ‘You know, he’s coming to town. You’ve got one day to meet him, have a drink, and meet him.'”
Ryan was in Los Angeles to visit his doctor after suffering a back injury. Kaley agreed to go to dinner with him, and the next day, he moved in. Within days of hanging out, she knew he was “the one.” “By day two I was like, ‘Oh my god.’ It was so unbelievable,” she revealed.
“I said, ‘This is it, this is it.'” When you know, you know, and in a matter of months, Cuoco and Sweeting were engaged and got married on New Year’s Eve that same year in front of 150 unsuspecting guests during a surprise ceremony.
