Kaley Cuoco gushed about her new husband Ryan Sweeting at the People's Choice Awards.

The 'Big Bang Theory' actress took the opportunity to praise the tennis player during her acceptance speech as she picked up the gong for Favourite Comedic TV Actress at the annual awards show on Wednesday night (08.01.14).

Ryan - who she wed in a romantic ceremony in Southern California on New Year's Eve (31.12.13) - looked on lovingly from the front row at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater and gave Kaley a cheeky wink as she dedicated her award to him.

The 28-year-old star excitedly delivered her winner's speech, stumbling over her words as she enthused: ''You [fans] are watching the show day in and day out, I couldn't appreciate you more. I gotta thank the rest of my cast, I come to work every day and it is not considered work, thank you...

''And my new husband, this is the second best thing that's happened to me all year, the first was marrying you baby! I love you!''

The happy couple were inseparable before the show, posing for numerous pictures together behind the scenes and on the red carpet.

They had only been dating for six months before tying the knot in a lavish fire and ice-themed ceremony, which saw Kaley don a princess pink Vera Wang gown and featured an upside-down wedding cake hanging from the ceiling like a chandelier.

The bubbly blonde has now changed her name on Twitter to Kaley Cuoco Sweeting.
