Kaley Cuoco is gushing over her man!

ET's Deidre Behar caught up with Cuoco and her husband, Karl Cook, just before the 32-year-old actress hosted the annual Stand Up for Pits comedy benefit show in Los Angeles, California, on Sunday. The adorable couple, who tied the knot back in June, couldn't stop raving about married life.

"It's the best ever," Cuoco exclaimed of wedded bliss to her 27-year-old equestrian husband.

Though for some couples marriage doesn't change anything in their relationship, for Cuoco and Cook, it definitely helped them to grow as a pair.

"I know some people say it shouldn't change, it should be the same, but you know for me it did," Cuoco explained. "I'm just so happy to come home to him everyday. He's my dream guy."

Cook agreed, saying, "It's great. I think... you learn to [be] better together and that's the joy."

One thing the couple bonded over -- and even incorporated into their wedding -- was their shared love of animals.

"We're lucky that we both share the same love for animals," the Big Bang Theory star said. "That's kind of what brought us together in the first place. So, we have a lot in common."

Spontaneity is another key to their relationship, so much so that they decided to adopt multiple rabbits on a whim.

"She wakes up and she's like, 'I want to adopt a rabbit,' and by the end of the day we had two white albino rabbits," Cook recalled.

"I woke up and said I wanted them and he goes, 'Let's go,'" Cuoco said. "So we went and we have eight rabbits now. I have an illegal amount of rabbits that I've rescued and he's totally supportive of me."

Rabbits aren't the only animals that the couple is looking into adopting; Cuoco has her eye on some pigs too.

"The other day she goes, 'Honey how do you feel about pigs?'" Cook revealed. "And I said, 'Honey, just adopt it.'"

"This is why I love him," Cuoco exclaimed.

The couple's love for animals was on full display Sunday night, as the Stand Up for Pits Foundation seeks to save lives and end abuse and discrimination of Pit Bull-type dogs. For Cuoco, her participation in the event was an easy decision.

"I obviously love the breed, I love all animals, everyone knows that about me. This became very important to me many, many years ago," she said. "I've had Pit Bulls for the last 10 years and I've just realized they are looked at in such a way that I just completely disagree with. I wanted to be their voice. This event is at least opening people's minds and I'm always proud to be part of it."

"I love the breed and I feel like they don't have a voice, so we have to. I'll do anything for any animal any time, but this event holds very dear to my heart. I will host it til the day I die," she added.

Last month, Cuoco told ET that she's "not there yet" when it comes to having kids, but, despite that, she already knows what values she wants to instill in her children.

"It's animal rights," she said of her number one lesson for her future offspring. "... I think you need to be independent and you need to have your own life and your own situation and then whoever comes into it makes it even more magical. But yes, treating humans with respect, treating animals with respect. It says a lot about you and it starts at a very, very young age."
