Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook are headed down the aisle! On Nov. 30, Karl gave Kaley the ultimate present for her 32nd birthday: a massive, pear-shaped diamond engagement ring. While we could not be more excited for the couple, there are still a few things you may not know about Kaley's other half. Like, how old is he? Or, what does he even do for a living? This will be Karl's first marriage and Kaley's second, as she was previously married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting (they divorced in September 2015). Keep reading to get to know even more about Karl in four quick facts.
- He's a professional equestrian. Karl has been riding since the age of 8, and in 2016 he won first place in both the $25,500 SmartPak Grand Prix and the $15,000 UltrOz Jumper. Kaley has also been riding horses since she was 15.
- He comes from a successful family. Not only is his mom, Signe Ostby, cofounder of Wisconsin School of Business's Center For Brand and Product Management, but she also launched a software startup in 1982. Karl's dad, Scott Cook, founded finance software firm Intuit in 1983 and has an estimated net worth of $3.1 billion, which Karl is set to inherit. No big deal, right?
- He and Kaley have a bit of an age difference. Karl was born on Christmas in 1990, making him 26 years old, while Kaley turned 32 on Nov. 30.
- He and Kaley have been going strong for over a year now. The couple first sparked dating rumors in March 2016 after Kaley posted a snap of the two on Instagram. Since then, the couple have shared several cute moments together, including their red carpet debut at the Longines Masters Los Angeles Gala in September 2016.
