From Superman to a sports star!

Kaley Cuoco was spotted in Sherman Oaks, Calif., Saturday and she was snapped looking cozy with tennis pro Ryan Sweeting after the budding couple enjoyed a romantic lunch date together at Marmalade Cafe.

The 26-year-old athlete and the 27-year-old Big Bang Theory star stayed close as they strolled side by side, appearing relaxed and comfortable in each other's company as they wrapped their arms around each other.

The TV star kept her look low-key for the daytime date, sporting a basic gray T-shirt, cut-off denim shorts and flip-flops. She wore her hair in a messy high bun and accessorized with a pair of shades and two trendy necklaces.

Her man also looked casual in basketball shorts and a basic white tee, appearing smitten with Cuoco as kept his arm around the actress while holding onto her hip in an affectionate embrace. 

While it's only been less than a month since Kaley split with Man of Steel star Henry Cavill, she has apparently moved on with the Bahamian hottie.

A source close to Kaley tells E! News the duo is still in the "getting to know each other phase," but Kaley "absolutely likes him."

And as the pair continues to spend time together, they are clearly (and adorably) trying to impress one another.

Just one day prior to their lunch date, the CBS star took Sweeting to her horse ranch in Moorpark, Calif., where Cuoco showed off her equestrian skills, and earlier that day, Kaley reportedly took on the role of spectator as she watched her (shirtless!) man display his tennis skills.

The good-looking pair can also rally together on the court, as Cuoco was a nationally ranked amateur tennis player as a kid, a sport she took up when she was just 3 years old.

E! News exclusively confirmed Cavill and Cuoco called it quits barely two weeks after their romance came to light.

Prior to Cavill, Kaley briefly dated Pepper bassist Bret Bollinger after ending her engagement to Josh Resnik. She also revealed back in 2010 that she dated The Big Bang Theory costar and off-and-on onscreen boyfriend Johnny Galecki for two years. The costars have remained close friends.

As Kaley gets cozy with Ryan, Cavill was recently spotted leaving a London nightclub with a mystery brunette.

Looks like the sexy stars are both moving on!
