The enchantment that once filled Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s marital bond has dissipated. After seven years of marriage, the celebrated actors have made the difficult decision to part ways. In a statement to the entertainment portal Page Six, the couple, aged 51 and 46 respectively, expressed their deep love and concern for each other, while also requesting privacy during this transitional period.
Their journey began at the White House correspondents’ dinner in 2014, where they first crossed paths and eventually kindled a romance. Just 18 months later, they exchanged vows in a joyous ceremony held in Florida.
Although the couple did not have any children together, Vergara has a 31-year-old son from a previous marriage. Fans of Sofia Vergara recognize her not only as a star from the hit television show Modern Family but also as a judge on America’s Got Talent. Manganiello, on the other hand, has made a name for himself with notable roles in the True Blood series, as well as films like Magic Mike and Spider-Man.
Even as their marriage faced challenges, Sofia Vergara continued to share glimpses of her life on social media. Just recently, she posted photos of herself enjoying the last days of her vacation in Ravello, Italy, donning a vibrant blue leopard print swimsuit.
Alongside her were her close friends, including fellow actress Camila Morrone, as they soaked up the sun and treasured each moment together. Throughout her trip, Vergara delighted her followers with various snapshots, showcasing the beauty of Italy, indulging in local cuisine, and celebrating her 51st birthday.
However, amidst the picturesque moments captured on social media, astute followers noticed a shift. While Joe Manganiello did express his well wishes to Sofia on her birthday through an Instagram post on July 10, the couple surprised the public just one week later with the announcement of their decision to end their seven-year marriage.
