Kaley Cuoco’s First Instagram Photo Since Ryan Sweeting Divorce Is Something To Celebrate — PHOTO

By now, it has become public knowledge that Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are divorcing after 21 months of marriage. This sad news has been the latest following a string of celebrity splits that took place over the summer. The couple released a statement to People confirming the split, while also asking for privacy, and leaving no indication as to why the pair decided to call it quits (I certainly can't blame them). To add to the finality of the news, Cuoco deleted all photos from her Instagram account that featured Sweeting. Fortunately, it appears that the Big Bang Theory star has cause for some much-deserved celebration during what is assuredly a difficult time.

On Friday, September 26, Cuoco posted a photo to her Instagram welcoming a new member to her family — a beautiful horse named Zaza! "Welcome to the family, Zaza!" she captioned the photo, following the line with a series of heart emojis. A longtime animal lover, Cuoco is seen planting a sweet smooch on her new family member in the post, making for a truly heartwarming photo. The actress has been a longtime fixture in the equestrian community, and even gave her horse, Thor, the title of "Sexiest Horse Alive" during an interview with People in April.

Not long after the adorable photo was published, Cuoco posted two more pictures where she appeared to be in good spirits. She posed with friend Lindsey Albanese in one photo, offering a shout-out to a new Mexican handbag line, Ala Pilar. "So excited to help my dear friend @lindseyalbanese launch her amazing Mexican bag line @ala_pilar that promotes young entrepreneurs in Mexico and fights human trafficking," she captioned the photo. In a subsequent post, Cuoco was all smiles as she toted one of the handbags and her dog, Miss Ruby.

Cuoco certainly seems to have a lot to smile about, which is great news given her recent circumstances. Let's hope that the Big Bang Theory star will continue to have much to celebrate as she moves forward.
