Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello decided to end their love story after seven years of marriage and confirmed their divorce after endless rumors. The couple stated exclusively to Page Six news site that it was something they both agreed on, and it has been complicated because of what they have lived through all this time, but in the end, it is for the best.
They took advantage of the space to ask the media to respect their privacy during the process. “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people who love and care deeply for each other, we politely ask that our privacy be respected at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives,” the couple told Page Six.
Also, a source close to the family detailed to the site that for some time now, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have been arguing a lot, which has led them to distance themselves to “contemplate their future.”
The last time the couple appeared in public was last month in Hoboken, when the actress visited Manganiello, on the set of his new project Nonnas with Vince Vaughn.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s Love Story
Sofia and Joe’s love was almost at first sight. He was in awe as soon as he met her when the celebrity was still engaged to Nick Loeb. The connection was obvious, but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks after she ended their relationship that Joe did everything he could to get her phone number.
He contacted her, and they started talking; that’s when Joe realized he wanted to be with the actress. “I knew quickly that I could trust her, and she knew quickly that she could trust me. And we’re both the kind of people who can put the other person ahead of ourselves. I was able to put her wishes before my own, whatever they were, and she was able to do the same. Once you have that, you don’t let go,” Joe told People magazine in 2020.
In September 2014, they made their first official appearance as a couple on the red carpet of the Primetime Emmy Awards. Since then, they have been one of Hollywood’s most popular and adored couples. Later that year, Joe Manganiello proposed to Sofia Vergara while they were on vacation in Hawaii. In November 2015, the celebrities tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach.
