The Big Bang Theory was around for 12 seasons, finally saying farewell to their devoted viewers in 2019. Throughout the show, fans watched several relationships between characters begin and end, but what about these actor’s real-life partners?
10.Jim Parsons And Todd Spiewak
Jim Parsons starred as theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper and throughout the show had a romantic relationship with Mayim Bialik’s character Amy Fowler. While the two may be a match made in heaven in their fictional world, Parsons is happily married to his real-life husband, Todd Spiewak.
Parsons and his husband dated for 15 years, before the actor only coming out to his fans in 2012. With the show now over, Parsons still acts as Sheldon in the 2017 sitcom, Young Sheldon.
9.Johnny Galecki And Alaina Meyer
Johnny Galecki may be a big-time nerd on the sitcom, but he’s quite the stud in real life. His first stage kiss was with fellow cast member Mayim Bialik when the two were just 14-years-old and he was a guest star on 1991’s Blossom. He would also later go on to date his co-star Kaley Cuoco but the two broke up in 2009.
