    Actor Joe Manganiello was spotted in public for the first time after announcing his divorce from his longtime wife Sofia Vergara. The 46-year-old actor was seen running errands after a workout on Saturday, 12th August. The Magic Mike star was seen without his wedding ring and carrying the former couple’s chihuahua.

    Manganiello’s public appearance comes nearly a month after the former husband and wife announced the end of their seven years long marriage. Their divorce news made headlines after Page Six reported Joe and Sofia’s separation on July 17.

    The former couple revealed they made “the difficult decision to divorce” in a statement released 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,” they said in their statement.

    A source close to the couple revealed to People that the former lovebirds had been going through ups and downs for a long time before they finally called it quits. Besides, the source also mentioned the now-separated couple “always put on a good front publicly” despite their differences.

    A couple of days after announcing their split, Joe filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. According to the reports Manganiello mentioned the date of their separation as July 2, 2023.

    Joe and his former wife Sofia Vergara had a prenuptial agreement in place before their divorce proceeding. Their assets and debts will be divided based on their agreement. Likewise, the spousal support will also be determined based on their prenup.
