Take an Internet-Walk Through Sofía Vergara’s Complete Dating History

Take an Internet-Walk Through Sofía Vergara’s Complete Dating History

In case you’re casually and respectfully curious about Sofía Vergara‘s relationship history now that she and Joe Manganiello have shocked an already shocked internet by announcing their breakup after seven years of marriage…here’s a primer on who Sofía has dated over the years. Including one surprise suitor whose name rhymes with Mom Snooze.

Joe Gonzalez: ~Circa 1991

Sofía married her high school sweetheart Joe and they welcomed their son, Manolo, when Sofia was 18 years old. The couple’s relationship didn’t last, and they ended up divorcing in 1993.

Sofía told People, “I was really young when I divorced his father, so I raised him trying to set the best example and give him the best that I could,” adding, “When people compliment me on him, on how well mannered, how charming, funny and well-behaved he is, it makes all the sacrifices worthwhile.”

Joe and Sofía still keep in touch, and in 2011 she told Parade, “We’re still close friends. When Jose comes to the United States, he stays with me.”

Chris Paciello: 1999

Sofía and Chris Paciello dated in the late ’90s, and the New York Post reported that “they seemed very much in love.”

Tom Cruise: 2004

Sofía and Tom Cruise were linked in 2004, but their brief relationship (if it existed) was never confirmed. According to a People article that’s since been removed (but is archived over here), Sofía said of the dating rumors, “I’ve only known Tom for a very short time. It’s funny because the media creates what they want to create.”

Nick Loeb: 2010

Sofía and Nick started dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2012. But it wasn’t meant to be, and the couple ended their engagement in May 2014.

Sofía confirmed the end of their relationship on her WhoSay account (I. Am. Screaming), writing, “Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have [decided] to be apart. We have [been] having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and [because] of my work and now his, it’s been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore.”

She added that “we are still very close but we [believe this] is the best thing for us right now.”

Their breakup took a turn for the surreal when Nick wrote an op-ed in the New York Times, arguing that the embryos he and Sofía froze via IVF had the “right to live” despite her not consenting. He sued and lost but is now reportedly suing the fertility clinic he and Sofia used.

Joe Manganiello: 2014-2023

Sofía’s personal life remained pretty out of the spotlight until she met Joe in summer 2014. The couple only dated for six months before getting engaged on Christmas Eve 2014. They married in November 2015, and seven years later announced their split.

Sofía and Joe released a statement to Page Six saying, “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 of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”

Sources then told the Daily Mail couple’s “different attitudes” caused their split, saying in part, “Bit by bit, they stopped wanting to be together and stopped hanging out because something so little would often trigger an attitude that would bug them, just their attitudes on everything were completely different and something like that is extremely draining for a relationship and they got to the point where it would be a good day and one thing would be said or done and they would just get upset with each other,” the source went on to say. “It added up to where now it is easier and more relaxing not being together. When people say they will be friendly, they will, but the romance part of things is over. They grew a part from something that could have been really good.”
