Joe Manganiello’s desire to have kids led to Sofía Vergara divorce: source
Joe Manganiello made the decision to end his seven-year marriage to Sofía Vergara due to a disagreement over having children, according to sources from TheFantasyTimes.
An insider close to the “True Blood” star, 46, reveals that he has always desired to be a father, and these feelings have grown stronger in recent years.
It is unclear where Vergara, 51, stood on the matter when they got married in November 2015, but sources say she might have been open to the idea at the time.
The “Modern Family” star already has a 31-year-old son named Manolo from her previous marriage to Joe Gonzalez.
She was also involved in a lengthy court battle over the custody of two frozen embryos from her IVF treatments in 2013 with her then-fiancé Nick Loeb, who wanted to bring them to term.
While a judge ultimately ruled in favor of the actress in March 2021, sources say the experience may have influenced her perspective on having more children.
Our insider reveals that this difference in their relationship is the true reason behind their separation, and that Manganiello’s mention of “irreconcilable differences” in his divorce petition, filed on Wednesday, is accurate.
Contrary to reports suggesting that the actor’s long-term sobriety negatively affected the marriage, our source does not believe that to be the case.
Furthermore, it is reported that there was no infidelity or interest in other people involved.
