Gary's birthday was not the only birthday Cuoco had to celebrate this week. Her husband, Karl Cook, celebrated his birthday on Christmas. To mark the occasion, Cuoco shared a collection of photos from their first months of dating.

"HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO the love of my entire life!!" Cuoco wrote. "[Cook], you are SO Karl and that's why we love you! You dance to the beat of your own drum, you are honestly authentically you 100% of the time and you bring me more joy than I ever could have imagined. My life with you is perfect."

Although Cuoco shares plenty of family photos on Instagram, her father usually avoids the spotlight. On Father's Day, Cuoco could not resist sharing a photo with him though, and revealed that he went to all but one Big Bang taping.

"Happy [Father's] Day to this guy!" Cuoco wrote at the time. "Attended all my tennis tournaments, became a horse show dad, has missed just a taping of [The Big Bang Theory], and laughs whenever I call and say 'I brought another animal home.' He is one of a kind!"

Cuoco's next big project is The Flight Attendant, which she created for HBO Max. The series is based on a novel by Chris Bohjalian and will star Cuoco as a flight attendant who wakes up in Dubai with a dead body lying next to her.

Earlier this month, Deadline reported that Briana booked a recurring role on the show. Briana famously competed on The Voice Season 5.
