Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello divorcing after 7 years of marriage
Sofía Vergara and her husband Joe Manganiello have decided to separate and are now going through a divorce after being married for seven years. This exclusive information was revealed by TheFantasyTimes. In a statement given to TheFantasyTimes, the couple expressed their difficult decision to end their marriage. Despite their deep love and care for each other, they are requesting privacy as they navigate this new phase of their lives.
Currently, the “Modern Family” beauty is celebrating her 51st birthday in Italy with a group of friends, but her husband Joe Manganiello is nowhere to be seen, and she is not wearing her wedding ring. According to a source, Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for some time and are taking a step back to contemplate their future.
The last public appearance of the couple was in March at the Vanity Fair Oscars bash. Since then, fans have noticed Joe’s absence from Sofía’s Instagram posts. This raised questions and concerns among her followers, as they wondered where her husband was and why he was not present in any of the pictures or videos. Joe also caught attention by posting a birthday tribute to Sofía in Spanish on his own Instagram account. Some fans found his message impersonal compared to his previous birthday wishes.
Another source revealed that at the beginning of Sofía’s birthday trip, people close to her tried to explain Joe’s absence by claiming that he was busy filming on the East Coast. However, this excuse did not hold up due to the writers’ strike, and it became clear that Joe was not with her. It is now evident that their relationship is over and done.
Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello tied the knot in a grand ceremony in Palm Beach in November 2015. The wedding was attended by 400 guests, including their celebrity friends and co-stars. They first met through Sofía’s former co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2014 when Sofía was engaged to Nick Loeb. A few weeks after her split from Loeb, Joe asked for Sofía’s number, and their relationship blossomed from there.
In a 2020 interview with People magazine, Joe expressed his trust and admiration for Sofía. They both prioritize each other’s wishes and are willing to put the other person ahead of themselves. This strong bond is something they cherish and hold on to.
Overall, the news of Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s separation and impending divorce has shocked their fans. They are now entering a new chapter in their lives and are asking for privacy during this difficult time.
Sofía Vergara and husband Joe Manganiello have separated and are divorcing after seven years of marriage, TheFantasyTimes can exclusively reveal.
The couple tell TheFantasyTimes in a statement: “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”
The “Modern Family” beauty is currently celebrating her 51st birthday in Italy with a posse of friends — but with no Manganiello or her wedding ring.
A source added: “Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”
The couple was last seen together last month in Hoboken, N.J., as Vergara visited Manganiello, 46, on the set of his new project “Nonnas” with Vince Vaughn.
Vergara, a judge on the NBC hit “America’s Got Talent,” is in Capri with her best friends and living her best life, posting a series of sexy photos on Instagram.
But Manganiello’s absence has not gone unnoticed by fans on Instagram, as Vergara later posted a photo with the message: When life gives u lemons u come to Italy to squeeze them.”
One wrote, “Is anyone else wondering where’s Joe?” while another said, “Wondering where her husband is, he hasn’t shown up in any of the photos of videos.”
Manganiello also raised eyebrows by posting a birthday tribute to his wife on his own Instagram that plainly read “!!Feliz Cumpleaños Sofía!!!” (“Happy Birthday Sofía” in Spanish.)
“Am I the only one who doesn’t like the way it sounds? ‘Sofía’ …. not even ‘ My love, My beloved wife,’” one fan commented. Another wrote: “Joe, I hope you guys are ok, that was a very different (cold) happy birthday wish to your wife, compare[d] to previous ones!”

Another source told us: “At the start of Sofia’s big birthday trip those close to her were explaining away Joe’s absence with the excuse that he was busy filming back on the East Coast; that excuse barely held up due to the writers strike, but once the actor’s strike took effect, he could have been on the first flight… and he quite clearly is not.
“So now no one out there with her is even attempting to pretend that it’s not over. It’s over. It’s done.”
The couple wed in a lavish Palm Beach ceremony in November 2015 in front of 400 guests — including Vergara’s “Modern Family” co-stars Ariel Winter, Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, Sarah Hyland and Ty Burrell, as well as Manganiello’s “True Blood” co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.
Reese Witherspoon and Channing Tatum were also in attendance.
Vergara — who has a 31-year-old son named Manolo with first husband Joe Gonzalez — and Manganiello first met through the actress’ former co-star Ferguson at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2014, when she was engaged to businessman Nick Loeb.
Manganiello asked for the actress’ number a few weeks later when she split with Loeb.
The “Magic Mike XXL” star told People magazine in 2020: “I knew pretty quickly that I could trust her, and she knew pretty quickly that she could trust me. And we’re both the kind of people who are capable of putting the other person ahead of ourselves.
“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.”
