Watch: Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello Divorcing After 7-Year Marriage

Magic Mike isn't the only one to take his last dance.

Sofía Vergara, 51, and Joe Manganiello, 46, have broken up after seven years of marriage

"We have made the difficult decision to divorce," they shared in a statement to Page Six. "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."

Back in 2014, shortly after Joe was named the "Number One Bachelor in the World" by People, the actor flew to New Orleans to take the recently single Sofia—who had just called off her engagement from Nick Loeb—out on a date.

"Our first date was her giving me every reason why it would never work out," the Magic Mike actor recalled to Haute Living in 2015. "Like, 'You're too young, you're an actor, you're this, you're that,' and she was just doing it to hear herself say it. She was trying to talk herself out of going there."

Despite her best efforts, he had won her over. By Christmas, they were engaged, with a wedding the following November.


I'm very lucky," the Modern Family star, who is mom to 31-year-old son Manolo from a previous relationship, raved to Ellen DeGeneres ahead of their second anniversary. "I must have done something really, really right in my life to get that reward. I'm good, but not a very, very good person. I'm good, but he's better than me."

And now, they'll test out being better alone. But they'll always have their memories. Just weeks before announcing their split, Sofia took to Instagram to share a handful of throwback images from a trip to Italy together. As she captioned the post, which featured a shot of Joe holding her waist as they posed on a bridge, "#tbt to summer!"
