After Vergara divorced Gonzales, her first husband, two years into their marriage, she moved to the USA with her son and family. Later on, she got engaged to actor Nick Loeb, but their engagement ended, and they broke up in 2014. Soon after that, Vergara started dating actor Joe Manganiello. They didn’t waste much time and got married in Palm Beach in 2015.

Joe Manganiello and Sofía Vergara were spotted at her son Manolo’s graduation ceremony from Emerson College in Boston. In 2020, Manganiello talked about how he knew right away that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Vergara.

He said, “I knew pretty quickly that I could trust her, and she knew pretty quickly that she could trust me. I was capable of putting her wishes ahead of mine, whatever they were, and she was capable of doing the same. Once you have that, you don’t let go of it.”

They kept the real reason for the divorce secret.

It was a big surprise. Vergara and Manganiello said they were no longer together and getting a divorce in July 2023. They said it was a tough decision, and they asked for privacy during this time.

For about a year, Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello kept quiet about their divorce, which happened after seven years of marriage. Despite no longer being a couple, they stayed friendly with each other. Manganiello even sent birthday wishes to Vergara on her 51st birthday.

They really tried hard to make things work, and they genuinely love each other, the insider shares. Nobody likes constant arguments with their partner, though. Joe only has good things to say about Sofía; he thinks she’s a wonderful person. Despite that, they realized they weren’t the best match for the long run.

Recently, Sofía Vergara shared more about her separation from Joe Manganiello while discussing her upcoming Netflix miniseries, Griselda. She explained their marriage faced challenges because Joe wanted kids, but Sofía felt she was too old for it and didn’t want to go through motherhood again.

Now that her son Manolo is 32, she feels ready to be a grandmother rather than a mother.

“My marriage broke up because my husband was younger; he wanted to have kids and I didn’t want to be an old mom. I feel it’s not fair to the baby. I respect whoever does it, but that’s not for me anymore.”

Now both of ex-spouses are building their new relationships.

Following their breakup, both former spouses chose distinct paths to navigate through the changes. Joe Manganiello formed a connection with actress and host Caitlin O’Connor, and their relationship appears to be thriving.

On the other hand, Sofia Vergara briefly rekindled ties with her ex-boyfriend Justin Saliman, but the reunion was fleeting, as she aimed to explore various possibilities and keep her options open. Presently unattached, Sofia Vergara is eagerly anticipating a carefree dating life. In fact, she intends to invest more time in New York to fully embrace and make the most of this period.

While Joe and Sofia managed their divorce smoothly, it’s still a tough chapter in life. Despite this, they are both moving forward, embracing new and exciting experiences in their separate lives.
