Kaley Cuoco is embracing being 30 — and putting her failed marriage behind her. The Big Bang Theory actress penned a heartfelt thank you note via Instagram as she celebrated her landmark birthday on Monday, Nov. 30.

“Today was the best birthday I have ever had … Thank you for all the love and best wishes … My heart is overwhelmed with joy and complete contentment. There have been a few bumps along the way, but thank you God, nothing I can't handle,” she captioned a scenic photo of herself overlooking the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation’s sanctuary in Mexico, where she celebrated her milestone by cuddling up to baby tigers and lion cubs. Cuoco added the hashtag “#30isgonnarock” while also thanking her friends (including former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky) who came along for the trip.

Cuoco filed for divorce from estranged husband Ryan Sweeting in September. As previously reported by Us Weekly, the highest-paid TV actress cited irreconcilable differences, and according to a source, she split from the tennis pro after 21 months of marriage because she could no longer tolerate his abuse of alcohol and prescription pills.

“She supported him,” the insider previously told Us. “But she said he couldn’t make the commitment to get sober. He’d tell her he was working on it, and instead go get wasted.”
