A source previously told PEOPLE that the former couple dealt with celebrity and personal interests in separate ways. Despite their mutual love and respect, the insider claims that the Modern Family star and the True Blood alum "differ immensely in style and what they like to do, although during the marriage, each tried to put the other's interests ahead of their own to make it work."
Manganiello, 46, and Vergara, 51, announced their separation in a joint statement earlier this week writing,
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 for our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.
Their split was announced shortly after Sofia Vergara was seen enjoying her 51st birthday with friends in Italy. Vergara was spotted without Manganiello or her wedding band. Although the True Blood star was not there for the celebrations, he did post a birthday message to his estranged wife on Instagram.
Manganiello lately shared photographs and videos of the pair on Instagram on June 8, when they were enjoying a "absolutely mind blowing" fine-dining experience at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a 2-Michelin-starred restaurant in Tarrytown, New York. The two were last seen together on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar celebration in March 2023.
