Much like wine and cheese (or, wine and literally anything), Kaley Cuoco and her new boyfriend Tom Pelphrey just go together. And because they literally won't stop doing cute things IRL and all over your feed, we're out here tracking their relationship—from how these two first met, to when they went Insta official literally two seconds later, to what they're up to now.

Tom and Kaley meet at the Ozark premiere, and it was fully love at first sight—which we know because she said as much to USA Today.
"We have the same manager, and we were set up by [her] which is so Hollywood," Kaley said in May. "She's like, 'Oh my God, I think you guys are perfect for each other.' We met at the Ozark premiere, and I was standing with Andrea and Tom walked in, and I heard his voice, and I turned around, and it was like my life was over, or just starting. It hit me. It was love at first sight. We were immediately connected. I do feel like I've known him my whole life, but I wasn't ready for him. We're ready to build a life together."

Tom and Kaley surprise everyone and go Instagram official. She does it sneakily on the swipe 'cause it's just cooler that way, while he has literally no chill whatsoever and pens what can only be described as a short novella.
“It is all so familiar and possible,” Tom mused in part. “It is too simple that there is this much good in the world and you don’t know how to have it. And it makes you wonder when it was you lost your place. 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.”
Not sure what this means, but confident it's meant to be romantic. Next!

Kaley's IRL and on-screen BFF Zosia Mamet gushes about Tom to Entertainment Tonight, saying, "It's really interesting, and she said this from the beginning, I knew when she knew. When you're best friends with someone, when you're truly best friends and you love them that deeply, you're so interconnected. And when I met him, I was one of the last to meet him. I met him and I was like, 'I feel like I've known you forever.' And he loves her like nobody's business, and that's all that matters to me."
