And it all started with a big bang Karl Cook popping the question! The Big Bang Theory star, Kaley Cuoco, is officially engaged. Her fiancé, Karl Cook, revealed Thursday evening on Instagram that he had proposed to Cuoco on her 32nd birthday, and the emotional video is a must-see.
In the sweet proposal video, Cuoco covers her face as she cries, flashing her new engagement ring and telling the camera, "We're engaged!"
Karl quickly adds, "You still haven't said yes yet," to which Cuoco responds over and over again, "Yes! I say yes! I say yes!"
Cook wrote in the post's caption, "Who knew my prior post was oracular. Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me. This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for Kaley as well.....if she said yes!!!!!"
He followed up the sweet post with a close-up shot of the stunning pear-shaped diamond engagement ring, captioning the pic, "I am so so so happy. Thank you @nadis_diamonds for making the greatest ring I could hope for. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you thank you"
Back in February, rumors arose that the two might have secretly been engaged after Cuoco posted a video on Instagram of herself sporting a diamond ring on that finger. But the couple set the record straight yesterday, and we know now the two are officially planning to tie the knot. Cuoco has been seeing her fiancé, a professional equestrian, since the spring of last year, following her divorce from Ryan Sweeting.
Those close to Cuoco recently hinted at the impending engagement. An insider spoke to E! News and said of the couple, "She loves his sense of humor and feels like he brings out the best in her. She trusts him completely and after she was burned in the past, she appreciates how genuine he is. They are in it for the long run but she doesn't know what the future holds. They are totally in love and happy together." Aww.
