How’s this for starting the new year with a "Big Bang"€?

Kaley Cuoco — the 28-year-old blond bombshell who plays, well, a blond bombshell on the popular TV sitcom "€œThe Big Bang Theory"€ — got hitched on New Year’s Eve to her fiance, tennis pro Ryan Sweeting.

The actress’€™ rep has confirmed the news, but the real proof came from Cuoco herself, via a post on her Instagram account several hours ago. The caption read, "Yep 🙂 #thesweetings @ryansweething,"€ and the image was of Cuoco and her man kissing:

We know what your next question is: "€œRyan who?"€ Don’€™t worry, only tennis insiders would know much about Sweeting. According to the ATP World Tour site, the Bahamian-born American player has a singles ranking of No. 667, and his highest ranking since turning pro in 2007 was No. 64. For now, at least, he’€™s best known as Mr. Cuoco.

Cuoco and Sweeting, 26, have been engaged since Sept. 25, but they’€™ve been dating for only about six months. According to US Weekly, the lovebirds were wed in a romantic ceremony at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Southern California.

An insider tells the magazine that the wedding got a late start, around 10 p.m., and that Cuoco wore a "€œpetal pink Vera Wang gown."€

It may seem like a bit of a whirlwind marriage, but the actress has been open about her feelings for Sweeting. "From Day One, I just knew immediately and it’s been magic,"€ she told Entertainment Tonight. " … I kind of feel that I’ve known him my whole life."
