While she did not reference Ryan, Kaley's message comes just days after her representative revealed the split, saying: 

'Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage. They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter.'

The 29-year-old beauty also deleted all traces of her estranged husband on Instagram and unfollowed him across her various social media accounts.

News of Kaley and Ryan's break-up came just a week after the actress revealed her spouse was great friends with her ex-boyfriend and Big Bang Theory co-star Johnny Galecki.

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live, Kaley said: 'Well, we dated like five years ago, so I think we both moved on. Johnny is actually one of my best friends. 

'It's a situation that ended well. I understand sometimes it doesn't. It could have gone horrible. He's one of my dearest friends and Ryan loves him. Johnny loves [Ryan]. I got lucky.' 

And just days later it was clear Kaley Cuoco was moving forward with her life when she stepped out once again without her wedding ring on her finger.

Kaley enjoyed some time with her dog Ruby in Thousand Oaks on Sunday, the same day People reported on details behind the recent state of Kaley and her estranged husband Ryan Sweeting's marriage, specifics that seemed to foretell their split.

For the casual outing, the blonde beauty partially slicked her golden blonde hair up into a ponytail, while letting the rest fall in a relaxed 'do.

She appeared to go makeup free, and accessorised the look with aviator sunglasses and a gold necklace. 

True to form, Kaley kept it casual with her trusty sandals as she clutched her handy cell phone.

The actress looked casual and comfortable as she strolled through the green grass, at one point stopping in her tracks as her dog socialized with another canine. 

Kaley and the other dog's master watched on as the dogs mingled with each other.

That same day, People reported on Kaley and her estranged husband's marriage, citing a source who said it had become apparent recently that 'the honeymoon phase had ended'.

Perhaps another telling sign of the changes in her life was the photo she posted on Friday that showed her little dog rolled over his back next to a glass of rose alongside the simple caption: '#Mood.' 

Just one day following the announcement, Kaley was spotted enjoying a ride on her horse Zaza in Pasadena.

The actress shared an Instagram photo, which appeared to be taken during the day, with the caption, 'I have the greatest friends and family on this earth!!', which included a number of heart emoticons.
