As part of the University of Kentucky's weeklong homecoming celebration UK football tight end CJ Conrad, along with UK cheerleaders Riley Aguiar, Josh Marsh, and Wildcat mascot Scratch, visited patients in the Kentucky Children's Hospital.

No stranger to Lexington, Kaley Cuoco was back in town Monday and even made a visit to the University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital Monday.

Cuoco, star of CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory,” visited patients and their families Monday at the hospital with her husband, Karl Cook. In an Instagram post highlighting her time at the hospital, she called the day “magic.”

“It was truly remarkable to meet the kids one on one and see the smiles spread across their faces,” she said. “Thank you to the incredible staff for their amazing care and for letting us be part of something special.”

According to UK Healthcare’s Instagram post, Cuoco and Cook painted horses and signed autographs for the kids. “Our kiddos loved getting to meet you both,” it wrote on Instagram.

She also took pictures with several members of the staff, including Dr. Scottie Day, chair of the UK Department of Pediatrics.

Cook is a professional equestrian and Cuoco also competes in jumping and owns several horses. She posted photos of her during the weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park, where she goes often with her husband.

Last year, Cook competed in the show jumping Grand Prix and Cuoco helped judge the tailgating at the Land Rover Three-Day Event at the Horse Park.

The series finale for “The Big Bang Theory,” which had a 12-year run on CBS, will be Thursday.
