The couple released a joint statement on the matter Monday.

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they told Page Six.

A source close to the matter was reportedly able to provide additional information about the state of their relationship.

“Sofía and Joe have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.” the source told Page Six.

Fans suspected their might have been trouble in paradise when Vergara posted a series of images of herself and a group of friends while in Italy celebrating her birthday. Manganiello was notably missing from the images and left a very simple birthday message on her social media account.

The “Modern Family” star turned 51 years old. Manganiello is 46.
