'Big Bang Theory' Star Kaley Cuoco Announces Engagement

Her year is ending with a huge bang!

Life is good for Kaley Cuoco right now. She has a hit sitcom on CBS, she was chosen to host the Teen Choice Awards, and now she’s engaged.

Cuoco’s reps have confirmed she is engaged to marry her boyfriend, Josh ‘Lazie’ Resnik, an addiction specialist. The two have not yet announced a wedding date.

Before Resnik, Kaley secretly dated her Big Bang Theory costar Johnny Galecki. How she pulled that off without anyone knowing, I have no idea.

"We dated for almost two years. It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it," Cuoco revealed after the breakup. "This is the first time I've ever talked about it, ever. It was a wonderful relationship, but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together."

Uh, wow. Sounds really…fun?

The two decided to keep things hush-hush because they were "so protective of ourselves and the show, and we didn't want anything to ruin that." But eventually, all the secrecy caused the pair to split.

"We couldn't do anything. It wasn't as fun as we wanted it to be," she says. "Everyone was always asking, and we deny-deny-denied. And I'm like, 'Why am I denying this person that I love?'”

Okay, so that’s how they kept it secret. Complete denial. Luckily, the split was amicable and it hasn’t affected their working relationship.

"We knew we weren't destined to be together. We accepted it and said, 'Look, if we ever break up, we will be professional,'" she recalls. "I'm so lucky it was a mutual ending and that we don't hate each other. We've seen that happen on other shows."

If anything, at least it makes it easy for them to get into character, as their characters ended up splitting.

“I like that [our characters] are broken up. Penny needs some other dates. As does Kaley!"

Well, Kaley’s officially off the market now.

Earlier this year, Cuoco did a nude photo shoot with Allure. Because of family is so conservative, Kaley decided not to tell them. The actress explained:

“My parents are very conservative, they’re great, they’re very conservative and so, even though this was a very big deal and I was very honored to be asked to do it, I couldn’t tell my parents that I was doing this shoot.”

But, of course, because she’s a big celebrity, her mom eventually found out:

“My mom got a Google Alert saying ‘naked, naked, naked Kaley Cuoco, naked, naked, naked’. So she texts me saying, ‘I got this Google Alert’.”
