Sources close to the couple revealed that Vergara and Manganiello had been growing apart for some time and are now taking space to reflect on their futures. According to insiders, the couple has been leading separate lives, focusing on their respective careers, personal growth, and spending time with loved ones.
Vergara, known for her role in the hit TV show “Modern Family,” has been dedicating herself to her new beauty brand, toty, and has been deeply involved and enthusiastic about its launch. Despite the separation, she still cherishes memories of her relationship with Manganiello, as evidenced by a framed photo of them kissing that she kept in her home.
Speculation about the state of their marriage started circulating earlier this month when Manganiello posted a simple birthday message to Vergara on Instagram. Additionally, Vergara's solo birthday trip to Italy without Manganiello further fueled rumors of trouble in paradise.
The journey of Vergara and Manganiello's relationship began in 2014 after the end of Vergara's engagement to businessman Nick Loeb. Manganiello, known for his role in “True Blood,” got Vergara's phone number from her “Modern Family” co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and flew to New Orleans to take her on a date. Their whirlwind romance led to an engagement after six months, and they tied the knot on November 22, 2015.
In previous interviews, Manganiello expressed how the spotlight on their relationship brought them closer together, stating that having someone to lean on during life's challenges was a blessing. He described their relationship as easy and emphasized the importance of finding the right partner after learning from previous experiences.
As Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello embark on this new chapter in their lives, fans and well-wishers extend their support and respect their privacy during this difficult time.
