Kaley Cuoco gives an update on her post-wedding shoulder surgery

Step Up Inspiration Awards

Most couples go on a honeymoon after they get married. Newlyweds Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook celebrated their nuptials at home, as Kaley underwent surgery on her injured shoulder. Since she shared so much of her wedding ceremony with us on social media that I feel like I should get her something from her bridal registry, of course she took us along on her latest adventure.

On Thursday, Kaley posted a post-surgery selfie with Karl to Instagram, adding the caption, “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 also gave a shout out to her hairdresser. I’ve had my share of surgeries, and there’s no way I’d post any pics on social media – and this kind of proves why.

Kaley’s not the only one doing some social media oversharing with this situation. Karl has also been posting what his bride predicted would be some “hilarious gems” on his Instagram. Apparently, Kaley has a good sense of humor, because if my BF posted these pics, I would kill him. Karl’s first gem was a shot of a very sad-looking Kaley. He captioned the less-than-flattering shot, “Everyone has their own version of a newlywed glow….well @normancook yours is memorable.”

Karl later posted a video of his new bride snoring like “a distressed walrus” (his words, not mine) on the ride home from the surgical center. Who knew this guy had jokes? (I’d still kill him if I were her.)

In an Instagram story posted last week, Kaley said that the surgery had been planned for a year, sharing, “I hurt [my shoulder] over a year ago and did not need immediate surgery so brilliantly planned it five days after our wedding. I knew I’d have a babysitter.” And, to his credit, Karl has been a good babysitter, although his hair styling skills might need some work. He did attempt to keep her locks off of her face by giving her a top knot – a process which Kaley documented in another Instagram story.

I’m glad Kaley’s surgery went well, as I said, I’ve had my share and the recovery time can suck, but she’s got Karl and, more importantly, her animals to keep her company. In yet another Instagram story, the actress shared that her pooch is delighted to have mama at home, stating, “Ruby is so happy I had surgery because she just gets to lay and stare at me for hours on end.” I think Ruby is an adorable recovery companion. Let’s hope Kaley has time to rest and recuperate. She really should use this time to take a little break from social media because you KNOW there are going to be a million photos from her actual honeymoon to come.

    Every time I’m about to roll my eyes and say, “oh, this one again?” I am reminded she is a champion of rescue animals. Those dogs are so cute!

  2. SamC says:

    I’ve been following it a bit and they both seem to have a pretty good sense of humor about it.

  3. Lululemon says:

    I don’t know if it’s just me but was Kaley’s Insta handle always ‘normancook’? If not, did she change it for her husband? So many questions.

    • Wellsie says:

      I need answers too. What’s with the “norman”?

    • SamC says:

      I think so; Norman is the first dog she adopted and I guess Cuoco is Cook in Italian?She’s had that as her IG name all along.

    • Tiffany says:

      She changed it when they started dating, but she did not introduce her husband then boyfriend to the world yet. It has been like that for a couple of years now.

      • ughMonday says:

        Um no. She’s had that handle forever, it was initially her dog Norman’s Instagram account. After she deleted her official insta, she just kept using @NormanCook

    I like her even thou she overshares and tries a bit too hard. I watched her in Charmed and think she is perfect as Penny in TBBT.

    Hope she gets well soon!

  5. Natalia says:

    Those dogs are adorable!!!

  6. EMc says:

    I enjoy the fact that they don’t seem to take everything too seriously. The distressed walrus comment made me chuckle.. he sounds like a funny guy. I expect while shes laid up in recovery the sharing will continue, but it doesnt bother me. I would much rather see their dogs and goofy pics than a lot of other stuff going around!

  7. themummy says:

    I actually find them kind of adorable. I didn’t at first, but that photo of him grinning at her bedside while she has a grumpyface on just looks like they are truly comfortable with each other…and I just find it kind of sweet for some reason. I just get a good vibe from them together. (And I really like that Kaley is such a champion for animals. Good on her for that.)

    That said–while I also enjoy that they can be silly and not take things too seriously, he should probably reconsider posting “snoring like a walrus” videos of his new wife…

    • Molly says:

      I have a soft spot for her, and I hope these two make it for the long haul. The fact that they’re both all about animals and horse jumping bodes well. Lots of things in common beyond her fame. (And the fact that he comes from his own money helps tremendously. I always got a moocher vibe from her ex.)

  8. ol cranky says:

    this is actually the kind of stuff I’d share on social media. so many people overshare some pretty vapid stuff about their perfect life or the things that aren’t perfect that seem a bit try hard. I’m and out and proud clutz so I have no problems posting about landing in the hospital because I did something stupid (of course all mixed in with dog stuff and the occasional political rant)
