Kaley Cuoco is having a bit of a honeymoon nightmare. The newly married actress reveals she has been nursing a post-wedding shoulder injury instead of vacationing.
A Very Different Honeymoon
The Big Bang Theory star and her hubby Karl Cook are enjoying a somewhat memorable post-wedding sojourn with Cuoco on bed rest. Rather than jetting off to exotic climes, the couple is staying put so Cuoco can recuperate in peace.
The 32-year-old took to social media to share several post-op pics with fans, including a selfie next to a hilariously happy-looking Cook.
"When your 'honeymoon' is shoulder surgery and your husband looks just as happy lol on the road to recovery -- thank you for all the love and support!" she joked.
Cuoco also encouraged eager fans to check out her new hubby's page for updates on her progress.
"Knowing @mrtankcook I'm sure he will be posting tons of hilarious gems," she added, noting at least her hair was looking good in spite of the injury.
Professional equestrian Cook didn't disappoint either as he shared a hilarious shot of Cuoco in hospital, seemingly about to tear up with a reference in the caption to a different kind of newlywed glow. He also posted a video of the actress snoring like a walrus as he described it.
Cook is being very helpful in his wife's time of need, however, even managing to do her hair for her. A recent Instagram Story showed a nervous Cuoco asking him to try his best at creating a top knot. After about 10 minutes of intense work, Cook was triumphant, with Cuoco acknowledging the finished product wasn't too bad.
It's not known as of yet whether the actress's surgery was planned or as a result of a post-wedding injury.
Feeling The Love
The two got hitched Saturday, June 30, at a horse stable near San Diego, California following almost two years of dating. The happy couple got engaged on her birthday in November 2017. Cuoco celebrated with a pink-themed bachelorette party a week before the wedding.
They started dating officially in spring 2016, making their first public appearance the following September. This is the actress's second marriage, following her divorce from former tennis player Ryan Sweeting back in 2015.
The low-key ceremony presided over by her sister, Briana Cuoco, included several of the bride's Big Bang Theory co-stars including onscreen boyfriend Johnny Galecki, Mayim Bialik, and Will Wheaton. Also in attendance was Fashion Police star Brad Goreski, who ensured the bride's dress was perfect before she walked down the aisle.
Cuoco wore a white lace dress with a cape, by Reem Acra, while the groom stayed classy in a classic tux. She had an outfit change later in the day, into a lace Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit with Louise et Cie shoes. She scraped her hair up into a ponytail for the reception also.
Aside from taking care of his new wife in her time of need, Cook will also be tasked with looking after their growing family of animals. In his vows, he noted that he would take care of any creature they brought home no matter what.
One of their dogs, Norman, appears to be aiding Cook in looking after Cuoco also. There's a shot of him on her Instagram page snuggling up to his mommy post-surgery.
