The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki took to Instagram to send birthday wishes and a light trolling Kaley Cuoco’s way.
The former co-stars, who previously dated from 2007 to 2009, share a close relationship still, as illustrated by Johnny’s loving but teasing post.
Sharing a throwback photo from their TV show’s days, which was mainly of his face with half of Kaley’s off to one side (how Ryan Reynolds), Johnny wrote: ‘Happy belated 48th birthday to my / worldwide adored, Mooks. @kaleycuoco [sic]’
Kaley in fact marked her 36th birthday on Monday, with Johnny adding on those additional 12 years in jest, as he has done on previous birthday posts.
Flight Attendant star Kaley clearly took his joke in good humour though, as she shared his post to her Instagram Story, adding: ‘He calls me Mooks’, and a sticker which read ‘Can’t wait to hug you’.
Mae Martin, who has joined season two of The Flight Attendant, also sent her best wishes to Kaley, while the actress and producer revealed that she’d ‘made’ Girls star (and another Flight Attendant co-star) Zosia Mamet go birthday shopping with her in her Instagram Stories.
‘I’m a terrible influence lol’, she added.
Kaley also took time to keep things honest on her special day, sharing snaps of herself with her beloved horses and writing: ‘Sometimes it’s ok to not feel totally ok. Even on ur bday [sic].
‘I have the greatest fam and friends that there ever was,’ she added, before showing the restorative power of a nuzzle from her favourites.
‘Also a quick stop by the barn for some magical pony kisses always helps,’ shared the star, who also recently adopted a tiny rooster called Mini Cooper from a local shelter.
She finished: ‘The amount of LOVE I recieved today was overwhelming. The mesages. The gifts. The calls. The check-ins. All of it. Meant the world to me.’
Kaley is currently in the midst of divorcing her second husband, equestrian Karl Cook.
The couple met in 2016 and got engaged the following year, saying their vows in front of their loved ones in 2018 – with many Big Bang Theory stars among their guests.
However, they announced their split in September, insisting there was no animosity, and both went on to cite ‘irreconcilable differences’ in their divorce papers.
Kaley was previously married to American tennis player Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016.
