CNN  — 

Actress Kaley Cuoco and her husband, Ryan Sweeting, are calling it quits after nearly two years of marriage.

The couple mutually decided to get a divorce after 21 months of marriage, a publicist for the actress said in a statement late Friday night.

“They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter,” it said.

“The Big Bang Theory” star and the tennis pro got engaged after three months of dating, and tied the knot in late 2013.

At the time, Cuoco said while it was unconventional, they had a lot in common.

This year, she was on the Forbes list of highest-paid actresses, thanks to her role as Penny on the hit CBS show.

Before her marriage to Sweeting, she dated her costar Johnny Galecki.
