PICTURED: 'Big Bang Theory' star Johnny Galecki dating model Alaina Meyer, 22 years his junior
While this is not the first time the actor has been public with his romance - at least on social media - the couple seems to be taking their relationship to the next level.
Leonard and Penny fans are in for a surprise!
'The Big Bang Theory' star Johnny Galecki, known for bringing fan-favorite nerd Leonard to life, is in love IRL and surprisingly enough, with a model who is half his age.“Last night was wonderful. Thank you #jefferykatzenberg,” the CBS star wrote, sharing a picture of his 21-year-old model girlfriend Alaina Meyer on Instagram on Monday. While this is not the first time TBBT actor has been public with his romance - at least on social media - the couple clearly seems to be taking their relationship to the next level with the latest cozy snap.
Even Meyer took to Instagram later to post a glimpse of their romantic evening. "Last night," she simply captioned the photo.
Decked in black overalls, its safe to say that the couple looked loved-up in the picture, standing close staring into each other's eyes. This is one of the many social media posts that the two have shared in recent times. Apparently, Meyer has even visited her 43-year-old actor boyfriend on the sets of his hit CBS comedy.
Their couple visits, though, also included the numerous trips that they have taken since the beginning of their relationship. As a sign of furthering their romance, Galecki and Meyer even got each other's initials tattoed. While the actor sports an "AMM" with a heart, the model has a "JG" and a skull inscribed on her arm.
Before dating Meyer, however, the actor was in a relationship with his 'Big Bang Theory' co-star Kaley Cuoco. The on-screen couple dated in real life for about two years before calling it quits in 2010. Despite the breakup, the pair has remained amicable.
Galecki even wished Cuoco earlier after she married her equestrian boyfriend Karl Cook. “Couldn’t be happier for my fake wife @normancook and @mrtankcook whose words brought us all to tears last night,” he shared.
