Although the ‘Big Bang Theory‘ star, Kaley Cuoco has been married to her husband, Karl Cook, for two years, the two had been living in separate residences, which seemed to work for them. However, amid the coronavirus pandemic, the couple made the decision to quarantine with each other, essentially forcing Cuoco to move in with her husband. The actress recently appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and explained to the host how the quarantine routine has actually proved to them that their marriage can work under one roof.
“We’ve been married for a year and a half, been together for almost four years. This quarantine has forced us to actually move in together,” Cuoco told Kimmel via video chat on Monday. “It’s been great for our relationship. And we like each other, we realized, which is even better.”
The actress had been filming her latest project in New York when the pandemic broke out, resulting in her being sent back to Los Angeles. It was then that she and her husband made the decision to move into together and ride out the outbreak.
“I was shooting in New York and got sent back here, obviously, because of everything that was going on and we got to move into the house together,” she continued. “So we moved in and I can’t find anything. But the house is great.”
“I think Karl would love it if I found my makeup at some point,” she added while sporting a large t-shirt and makeup-free look. According to the actress, all is well within their household as they continue to stick to the social distance and quarantine measures recommended by public health and governmental organizations.
Cuoco first revealed she and Cook weren’t living together last August, despite being married. She told E! News that they had quite the ‘unconventional’ marriage, but that they were building a ‘dream house’ and were ultimately, excited about moving into to it.
A few months later, the actress appeared on Brad Goreski’s podcast, ‘Brad Behavior’, where she revealed the reasons for wanting to live separately in a different house from her husband, despite being in what she calls one of the best relationships that she’s ever been in.
“I’ve obviously never been in a better relationship and I want this to last the rest of my life so, in a way, we’re actually taking it slow,” she said on Goreski’s podcast. “We’ve been together for almost four years. We’ve not lived together. We are building our house, as you know. We will be under the same roof, eventually, but this has worked for us.”
“… I have the best relationship with Karl. We are so happy, but yes, we have separate lives and then our lives come together and he’s so supportive of me,” she added. “He lets me be me, and I let him be him,” Cuoco concluded on the podcast.
