It looks like things are heating up between Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook!

The Big Bang Theory actress is "in love, head over heels" with her boyfriend, a fellow equestrian, a source told E! News exclusively.

"They seem to be in a good spot right now. She is always traveling with him. It's not as much her schedule but more so his. She never knows when she's going to be in town because she goes whenever and wherever he goes," the source said, adding, "She is super smitten."

Cuoco and Cook were spotted Wednesday evening shopping at a Gucci store and then heading to the Villa Blanca restaurant in Beverly Hills for a romantic dinner date. They were seen holding hands as they sat at their table and seemed very happy together, another source told E! News exclusively.

Last Friday, two days after Cuoco celebrated her 31st birthday, the two were spotted dining at Craig's Restaurant in West Hollywood.


Cuoco and Cook first sparked romance rumors in March. A month later, Cuoco posted a cozy pic of her with her beau on Instagram, saying, "That's what happy looks like."

She also congratulated Cook on his win at an equestrian competition, saying, "When bae wins its a good night for this girl." Both are avid equestrians.

The two had begun dating after meeting at a horse show, Cuoco revealed on The Talk in September.

"I finally found my horse guy," she said.

That month, Cuoco and Cook made their red carpet debut as a couple, at the Longines Masters Los Angeles Gala.

In an interview with Women's Health magazine, published in the magazine's December 2016 issue, Cuoco said she and Cook two spend every weekend together.

She also talked about the coincidental details they share—"KC squared!" she said, and the meaning of their last names; "Cuoco" means "cook" in Italian.


Cuoco and Cook's romance rumors began about a month after she and husband and tennis player Ryan Sweeting finalized their divorce after more than a year of marriage.

Cuoco told Women's Health that after their split, she wondered if she would ever love or marry again.

"Then I knocked into Karl—literally, we bumped arms at a horse show," she said. "And we each said, 'Oh, I'm sorry'—and everything changed. I looked at him, and he looked at me..."

The actress told Women's Health said she's "absolutely" thinking about getting married again and also having kids one day.

"I'm meant to be a mom," she said.
