We were certainly surprised to hear that Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco was engaged to Ryan Sweeting after only three months of dating. But the proposal was even more of a shock to her.

Even though Cuoco said she knew "from day one" that she would marry tennis player Sweeting, it didn't seem that way the night he proposed.

"[Ryan] actually started a little fight with me and threw me off," she told Entertainment Tonight on Monday. "I was like 'Oh my God, things aren't great."

Cuoco must have tried to stay calm—until Sweeting brandished an engagement ring.

"He surprised me at the end of the night...[when] he popped the ring out," she said. "It was amazing." It turns out, the fake argument worked and Cuoco was taken completely off-guard.

Cuoco, who is filming her new movie The Wedding Ringer, says their speedy courtship only looks irrational from afar.

"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. I know that it seems a little crazy on paper, but it's what works for us."

An engagement night like that sounds stressful to us, but we're glad Cuoco is happy! We can't wait to get a good look at her engagement ring and to hear all of the wedding plans.
