Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Confirm “Difficult” Decision to Divorce After 7 Years

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Announce Divorce After 7 Years of Marriage

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have decided to end their marriage after seven years together, according to a joint statement provided to Page Six. The couple, widely known for their Hollywood romance, have asked for privacy as they navigate this difficult time.

Sources close to the couple reveal that they have been growing apart over the past few months and have taken some time apart to reflect on their future. Rumors of trouble in paradise began circulating when Manganiello posted a simple birthday message for Vergara on his Instagram, without any lengthy or sentimental caption.

Adding fuel to the fire, Vergara recently took a birthday vacation to Italy without Manganiello, further raising eyebrows about the state of their relationship. However, it is worth noting that she did have a framed photo of them together in her home during the celebration.

Throughout their relationship, Vergara and Manganiello have had their fair share of ups and downs, but their love story had initially captivated audiences. It all started in 2014, shortly after Vergara’s engagement to businessman Nick Loeb ended. Manganiello, with the help of Vergara’s “Modern Family” co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, managed to score her phone number and flew to New Orleans for their first date.

Within six months, the pair got engaged and tied the knot on November 22, 2015. In an interview with Ocean Drive magazine, Manganiello acknowledged the pressure of their high-profile relationship but revealed that it only brought them closer together.

“They say marriage and relationships are work, but it’s not. Life is hard, and having somebody to help you deal with it is the greatest thing that ever happened,” Manganiello shared, expressing his love and admiration for Vergara.

As Sofia Vergara focuses on her new beauty brand “toty,” sources say she has been pouring her energy into it. Meanwhile, Manganiello has been devoting himself to his career and loved ones. Both have been living separate lives and prioritizing their personal pursuits.

The split comes as a shock to their fans who have admired their love story over the years. Despite their decision to go their separate ways, the couple leaves behind cherished memories and a legacy of resilience.

While this may be the end of Vergara and Manganiello’s marital journey, it is clear that they both value the privacy and respect they deserve during this challenging time. Their supporters can only hope for healing and happiness as they embark on their new chapters.
