UPDATE 08/01/2023: Sofia Vergara is requesting that the judge uphold the prenup between she and her estranged husband, Joe Manganiello. Though insiders have claimed that there is “no drama” between the couple and that the split appears to be amicable, Vergara is asking for certainty that she will retain all of her earnings, from both before and during their marriage.
Vergara is also asking to retain art pieces, jewelry, and “personal affects” gifted between the couple.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: As one of Hollywood’s favorite couples, fans were devastated to hear that Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara’s love story had come to an end. While the couple released a statement citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split, rumors have been circulating about the real reason behind their divorce.
According to sources close to the couple, the real reason behind their divorce is their differing opinions about having children.
Joe Manganiello has always wanted to be a father, and those feelings have only intensified in recent years. On the other hand, Sofia Vergara may have been open to having more children at the time of their wedding, but sources say that the experience of the lengthy court battle over custody of two frozen embryos from her 2013 IVF treatments with then-fiancé Nick Loeb may have affected her view on having more kids.
The source notes that the “irreconcilable differences” cited by Manganiello in his divorce petition is accurate. The couple had different ways of dealing with fame, as well as personal interests, but it was their differing opinions about having children that ultimately led to the end of their marriage.
Despite reports claiming that the actor’s longtime sobriety negatively impacted the marriage, sources do not believe that to be the case. Additionally, there was no infidelity or interest in other people at play.
While we may never know the full story behind Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara’s divorce, it’s clear that the couple has a lot of decisions to make in the coming months. With a prenuptial agreement in place, the couple will likely have a clean break financially. However, they will have to navigate the emotional toll of a divorce, especially after seven years of marriage.
Whatever the future holds for Joe and Sofia, we know that their fans will always support them and wish them the best.
