Sofia Vergara reveals real reason behind split from Joe Manganiello


Sofía Vergara has confirmed that Joe Manganiello’s desire to have children was a factor in their divorce. Despite the separation, Sofía is open to finding love again, particularly with a partner who already has children.

“My marriage broke up because my husband was younger; he wanted to have kids, and I didn’t want to be an old mum,” the actress, 51, recently told El País.


“I feel it’s not fair to the baby.”

The Modern Family star made it clear that while she “respect[s]” those who wish to welcome children later in life, the path is just “not for [her] anymore.”

“I had a son at 19, who is now 32, and I’m ready to be a grandmother, not a mother,” she explained of Manolo Gonzalez Vergara, whom she shares with her first husband, Joe Gonzalez, reports Page Six.

“I’m almost in menopause; it’s the natural way of things,” she said, adding, “When my son becomes a dad, let him bring the baby to me for a while and then I’ll give it back to him and go on with my life; that’s what I have to do.”

In October 2023, the Emmy Award nominee revealed her relationship with orthopaedic surgeon Justin Saliman; however, it is unclear whether he has children.

Three months ago, Page Six reported that Sofía and Manganiello, 47, separated after seven years of marriage.

“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 former couple told Page Six in an exclusive statement at the time.

A source close to Joe Manganiello mentioned his long-standing desire to become a father, which grew stronger over the years.

Sofía recently acknowledged that media coverage accurately reflected aspects of their split, making the heartbreak more manageable.

“It wasn’t bad,” the Colombian beauty confessed.

“I have to say the press was very respectful and very nice. And I thought that they were gonna invent more things, and you know how it usually is.”

Meanwhile, Joe Manganiello has moved on and made his red carpet debut with his girlfriend, 33-year-old actress Caitlin O’Connor, in December 2023.
