Joe Manganiello Linked To Young Actress Amid Sofia Vergara Split
September 17, 2023
Joe Manganiello appears ready to mingle after separating from his longtime spouse, Sofia Vergara! The Hollywood hunk is reportedly testing the dating pool with a younger woman.
The sensational actor is not lacking in the looks department and can easily make any woman swoon with his mouth-watering physique. However, the 46-year-old is not only working on his body at the gym as he had a sweaty date with the actress Caitlin O’Connor.
The pair were recently spotted together leaving a fitness building months after the Pittsburgh native began processing his divorce from the Colombian beauty. Sources claimed the entertainer left the “Modern Family” star over her luxurious lifestyle to embrace a small-town vibe. Does his new flame fit the standards?
Joe Manganiello Looked ‘Giddy’ On His Recent Outing With Caitlin O’Connor
On Wednesday, September 13, the “Rampage” actor ran into paparazzi after finishing his stint at the gym with his speculated new lover. The duo were photographed outside the Gold’s Gym in Venice, California, walking side by side as seen in the pictures obtained by PageSix.
Manganiello and O’Connor, who have a 13-year age gap, reportedly looked “giddy” as they exited the building. For their gym date, the 46-year-old rocked a white tank top illustrated with the words “Death Saves.”
He paired the outfit with army-print shorts and sneakers. The “Magic Mike” star flaunted his new arm tattoo in the sleeveless number alongside his bulging biceps as he effortlessly carried a massive duffel bag.
By his side, the younger actress showed off her toned physique in figure-hugging black leggings and a long-sleeve blue crop top. The duo left the area in the Pittsburgh heartthrob’s Cadillac SUV, seemingly proving their close relationship.
Following their appearance at the gym, fans became curious about the stunning woman getting friendly with Manganiello amid his divorce from Vergara. Like his soon-to-be ex-wife, O’Connor is a woman from the entertainment industry.
The “True Blood” star’s rumored lover has made a name for herself as a multi-hyphenate star with the titles actress, producer, and TV host. She has several acting credits, with her most famous project being her current role as Dyan Cannon on the “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty” series.
O’Connor has also starred on projects like “Electric Love,” “7 Lives Exposed, “American Satan,” and “A Cinderella Christmas,” among others. As a TV host, the Los Angeles beauty has interviewed several famous faces, including the rapper Post Malone, whom she gave a birthday shout-out in July.
When she is not working, the TV personality reportedly relaxes by attending music festivals like Coachella and Burning Man concerts. Additionally, O’Connor has an impressive following of over 600k admirers on Instagram, where she shares snippets from her remarkable life.
The Speculated Couple’s Outing Came Less Than Two Months After Manganiello Filed For Divorce
The Saturn Award winner’s gym session with O’Connor came less than two months after the Hollywood hunk began his divorce proceedings in July. Following the 46-year-old’s legal filing for separation, Vergara responded with her agreement to split.
According to the legal documents, the “Chasing Papi” actress confirmed the former lovebirds were together for seven years before parting ways on July 2, 2023. Additionally, the Colombian beauty stated that any spousal support paid by either party should follow their prenuptial agreement.
This means the 51-year-old agreed with everything her ex-lover had stipulated in his divorce filing. Although the details about their prenup were not highlighted in the documents, it would presumably follow the typical route of each party keeping their respective earnings.
Vergara asked the court to confirm her ownership of “miscellaneous jewelry, artwork, and other personal effects” along with “earnings and accumulations” she had before and during the marriage. She also requested that each party be responsible for their attorney’s fees.
As stated, sources close to Manganiello claimed the Pittsburgh native ended his longtime marriage for a simpler lifestyle. An insider close to the Hollywood hunk claimed the 46-year-old embraced the lavish lifestyle for his ex-wife but never liked it.
“I don’t think Joe was ever really comfortable in a giant Los Angeles mansion or on the beaches of Saint Tropez,” the “Magic Mike” sta’s friend claimed. “He saw that stuff for what it was and only let it into his life because it made Sofia happy.”
The source claimed Manganiello might find “some modest small town to settle down in” as he longed for a down-to-earth scenery. The insider stated the Scream Award winner tried and failed to have that type of life with Vergara.
“He misses the backyard barbecues and friend group he had in the early days of his career. He tried to recreate that vibe during this marriage without much success,” the informant explained.
