Kaley Cuoco is in love and she doesn't care who knows it!

The Big Bang Theory actress stopped by The Talk Thursday and gushed about her boyfriend Karl Cook. The actress, who also happens to a passionate equestrian, revealed that she and her beau met at the perfect place.

"We met at a horse show. I finally found my horse guy. I know. It was meant to be," she gushed to the co-hosts. "He's an amazing, amazing rider. Rider and jumper. Amazing equestrian and great human. We share obviously our passion for horses and dogs and all that. And it's been lovely. So great."

Before she met Karl, however, she wasn't sure what life was going to have in store for her. Cuoco was married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting for 21 months before filing for divorce, which meant dating wasn't on her mind.

"I think even when I went through my big breakup, my friends know me so well I think I might have said things like, 'I'm never going to love again. I'm never going to get married again,'" she recalled. "You say these things and the people that know you the best, they like know my heart and that's just not me. I wear my heart on my sleeve. And I knew even deep down, I knew this was just not the right thing."

Eventually the actress realized that she would find someone knew, but it would take time.

"The right thing was coming for me. I knew it. We all go through these things, but a lot of people don't see everyone's personal life played out. A lot of people go through this stuff on their own and I'm just glad I got through it. And I couldn't be happier. It's like I saw the light somehow."

Cuoco also opened up about her split on CBS This Morning, where she told Gayle King that she wasn't embarrassed about her short-lived marriage. "Everything ended the way it was supposed to," Cuoco shared.

"I'm not ashamed of anything that happened. I love hard and when it's over, it's over…I wouldn't call it a mistake. It just is what happened in my life."
