Who Is Kaley Cuoco's Boyfriend, Tom Pelphrey?

One month after Kaley Cuoco and her new beau, Tom Pelphrey, walked the red carpet together for the first time at the Emmys in September, Kaley shared some exciting news: She's pregnant!

Kaley had been separated from her second husband, Karl Cook, for seven months when she first met Pelphrey in April 2022, per Entertainment Tonight. Pelphrey is probably best known for his role as Ben Davis on the Netflix series "Ozark," but during an appearance on "The Tonight Show," Kaley confessed that she hadn't seen the critically acclaimed drama when she learned that her manager also represents Pelphrey. According to "The Flight Attendant" star, her sister, Briana Cuoco, kind of freaked out when she shared this information with her.

Kaley's manager mentioned to her that Pelphrey was single, but she didn't take the bait at the time because she felt like she wasn't yet ready to start dating again. Months later, her manager invited her to the "Ozark" premiere, and Pelphrey approached "The Big Bang Theory" star while she was in the line for the bathroom. "It was love at first sight," Kaley gushed. "The world stopped." The love story served Cuoco well when she embarked on a media blitz to promote her romantic comedy "Meet Cute." When she was sharing the tale with Entertainment Tonight, she said of Pelphrey, "He's the cutest of all." But he's more than just a pretty face — he's an in-demand star.

Tom Pelphrey and Kaley Cuoco both received Emmy nominations

If you're like Kaley Cuoco and haven't watched "Ozark," perhaps you've seen Tom Pelphrey's work in the David Fincher film "Mank" or the series "Outer Range," "Iron Fist," or "Banshee." But in an interview with New York Moves Magazine, the New Jersey native revealed that football was his first love. An injury dashed his dream of playing the sport in high school, and while he was still hobbling around on crutches, a friend encouraged him to audition for a play. He soon discovered a new passion, but his love of football remained intact — while watching the New York Giants win Super Bowl XLII at a bar, he went so wild that he almost got kicked out, per Esquire.

Fast forward to 2022, and Pelphrey is playing the role of supportive boyfriend by watching the Emmy nominations with Cuoco. They were still celebrating her nomination for "The Flight Attendant" when Pelphrey learned that he had scored his own nod in best drama guest actor category. "It was a pretty special day," he told GoldDerby.

The actor's post-"Ozark" roles include the movie "She Said," which is about the Harvey Weinstein investigation, and the true crime miniseries "Love & Death," which sees him share the screen with Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons. He also landed the lead in the movie "American Murderer." But there's one role he won't be playing anytime soon: husband. "I will never get married again," Cuoco vowed to Glamour.
