Ozark actor Tom Pelphrey and The Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco recently confirmed their new relationship on social media. Before making things official with The Big Bang Theory alum, Pelphrey has reportedly been single since 2018. Who has the Ozark star dated before Cuoco?

Tom Pelphrey and Kaley Cuoco are dating

In May 2022, The Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco, 36, confirmed her relationship with Ozark star Tom Pelphrey, 39, in several photos uploaded to her Instagram.

Seemingly taken at a cabin while on vacation, the actor shared pictures of the scenery, a video of her saying good morning to her dad, a shot of two coffee cups, and a few PDA-packed polaroids with Pelphrey, including one of him kissing her on the cheek.

She captioned it “life lately” and added a short poem, ‘the sun breaks through the clouds, rays of gold slipping into my eyes and heart, rays of yellow to break the grey.’” Pelphrey also confirmed the new romance on Instagram using the same Polaroid picture of them she chose in her carousel post.

He wrote a lengthy caption from “Noah’s wall” in which he spoke about how “nothing can save you” but “then you catch a breeze, so warm and ripe, it makes you hope that someone will come who also cannot save you, but who will think you are worth saving.” 

Pelphrey’s relationship history includes ‘Blindspot’ star Jaimie Alexander 

In 2004, Pelphrey broke out as anti-hero Jonathan Randall in soap opera Guiding Light, a role that earned him two Daytime Emmy Awards.

During his time on the show, he met and reportedly began dating co-star Gina Tognoni who portrayed Dinah Marler, around 2005. It’s unclear why they split up, but he eventually moved on to another co-star Stephanie Gatschet (who played Tammy Winslow).

After they broke up, Pelphrey landed the role of Kurt Bunker in Banshee (2013), where he met another star of the series, Lili Simmons, who portrayed Rebecca Bowman.

The couple dated for an undisclosed amount of time before he began a short-lived relationship with Jaimie Alexander, who portrays Remi Briggs after they met on the set of Blindspot. They made their red carpet debuts in 2018 but split afterward. The Ozark star seemingly hasn’t dated anyone until Cuoco.

Cuoco has been married twice before

Cuoco has also had her share of relationships before making things official with Pelphrey. While starring in The Big Bang Theory, she reportedly secretly dated co-star Johnny Galecki, who portrayed the lead role of Leonard Hofstadter.

But, they ended things in 2010. She dated several people until falling for tennis star Ryan Sweeting, and the couple tied the knot in 2013. However, the actor has claimed that he began behaving worse after they wed and “ruined” the purpose of marriage for her.

The pair eventually divorced two years later, and The Wedding Ringer star has since covered up her wedding tattoo. In 2017, the award-winning actor got engaged to equestrian Karl Cook, and they married in a horse barn.

However, it didn’t work out, and they divorced in 2021 as she filmed The Flight Attendant Season 2. Due to the emotional toll it took on her, Cuoco has opened up about seeking therapy for it.
