Each year we are shocked to remember that Johnny Galecki and Kunal Nayyar share a birthday. What are the odds that two majors star, two of the highest paid actors on television, starring in the same show, were born on the same day?
Kaley Cuoco reminded Big Bang Theory fans that two of their favorite actors share a birthday on May 1st. She wrote a post for both Johnny Galecki and Kunal Nayyar.
In Johnny’s post, Kaley said, “Happy happy birthday to the best tv husband a girl could ask for! This pic was taken during our first press tour in Rome. I don’t think we had any idea the ride we would be on! Love u Mooks!”
Kaley also has a funny nickname for Kunal. On his post she wrote, “Aaaand another happy birthday to my pal @kunalkarmanayyar ! The only guy I know who looks perfect in every single picture he takes 🤣 #zoolander love u kunky!!! 💕”
Kaley has a history of friendship and relationships with these men, but more so with Johnny. She and Galecki dated secretly for the first two years of filming Big Bang Theory and were perhaps even dating when the Instagram photo was taken. Kaley said of the relationship, “”It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it…It was a wonderful relationship, but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together.” She added, “We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that. But that also made it sad, too.” Kaley also admitted she was conflicted about the cover-up, stating, “Everyone was always asking, and we deny-deny-denied,” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Why am I denying this person that I love?”
