Kaley Cuoco's race to the altar wasn't nearly as hasty as it might seem.

The Big Bang Theory actress opened up about her recent marriage to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting on Monday's Late Show With David Letterman. "We met on a blind date," the TV star recalled. After hitting it off, she said, "We texted a little bit, dinner was great, and then he moved in the next day."

Cuoco, 28, knows how that might be interpreted. "It sounds so slutty, but it wasn't," she insisted.

"It all did move quite fast on paper, but we really did know," she said of getting engaged to Sweeting after three months of dating. "I'm totally married," she reminded host David Letterman. "I know you're all thinking, 'She's nuts!' I swear I'm not nuts! We were throwing a New Year's Eve party anyway, and I was like, 'Let's throw a ceremony in the party and not tell anybody.'"

By her own admission, Cuoco spilled the beans with her manicurist, gas station attendants and more.

"There'd be all these articles, and my husband would be like, 'How does everyone know we're getting married?'" said the Kids' Choice Awards nominee. "And I'd be like, 'I do not know. I do not know.'"

Cuoco also revealed that she and Sweeting haven't gone on a "big" honeymoon yet. "We actually went to Disneyland. He had never been before, and it's like my favorite place in the world," she explained. The famous couple tried to keep a low profile, but their plans were quickly thwarted. "They had given us these massive Disney pins that said, 'Kaley and Ryan: Just Married,'" Cuoco recalled. "So we're walking around and we're like, 'Why are people waving and saying congratulations?'"

Honeymoon plans are on hold for now, however, since the newlyweds will move into a new house in a few weeks."[A peacock] came with the house!" Cuoco explained. "He's officially joined the family."
