Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello have split up after seven years of marriage

Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello have split up after seven years of marriage

The Modern Family star says they still love each other but are 'navigating this new phase of our lives'.

Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello have split up after seven years of marriage.

The two got engaged back in 2014 after dating for six months and their relationship kicked off shortly after Vergara split from Nick Loeb.

They married in Florida in 2015 and have enjoyed more than half a decade together.

However, it appears they have decided to part ways.

They have told Page Six in a joint 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 51-year-old is currently in Italy celebrating her birthday and fans had noticed she hadn't been wearing her wedding ring in some of the images.

Manganiello also hasn't been seen in any snaps from the trip.

One of the posts on Instagram was accompanied with the caption: "When life gives u lemons u come to Italy to squeeze them.”

That sparked a lot of rumors that the two were on the verge of breaking up.

One fan wrote: "Yep marriage is over."

Page Six says the last time the two were seen together was last month when Sofía visited Joe on the set of his new project in New Jersey.

However, she only posted a throwback of a previous trip to Italy with Joe two weeks ago.

The two met thanks to Vergara's Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, according to News Corp.

They officially were introduced at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2014 and Manganiello says they hit it off straight away.

He opened up in 2020 about how they knew they were right for each other.

“I knew pretty quickly that I could trust her, and she knew pretty quickly that she could trust me,” Manganiello told PEOPLE magazine.

“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.”

However, sources have recently revealed they haven't been spending much time together.

An insider told Page Six: “Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”
