Hollywood actress Sofía Vergara will divorce her husband Joe Manganiello after being married for 7 years. The actors issued a statement to Page Six, saying: “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people who love and care very much, we politely ask that we respect our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”
Meanwhile, a source close to the stars revealed to Page Six: “Sofia and Joe have been estranged for a while and are distancing themselves from each other to contemplate their future.” Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got married in Palm Beach, Florida in November 2015.
Sofia is currently in Italy, enjoying her birthday weekend. She turned 51 on July 10 and none of her photos show Joe. However, the next day, the actor wished her on Instagram, sharing the photo of her with a single, “Happy Birthday Sofia!”
Previously, Joe had described his marriage to Sofia as the right decision. In an interview with PEOPLE, he said, “I knew quickly that I could trust her, and she knew quickly that she could trust me. And we are both the type of people who are capable of putting the other person before ourselves. I was able to put her desires ahead of mine, whatever they were, and she was able to do the same. Once you have that, you don’t let go. My instincts about her were correct.
