Joe Manganiello seen for first time since Sofía Vergara divorce announcement

Joe Manganiello was spotted for the first time since he and Sofía Vergara announced they were divorcing after seven years of marriage.

In photos obtained by People, the “Spider-Man” actor was out in Los Angeles Saturday running errands after a workout while carrying the former couple’s dog, Bubbles.

He was noticeably no longer wearing his wedding ring.

For the outing, Manganiello, 46, wore a gray muscle shirt, a pair of bandana-printed shorts and white sneakers.

Manganiello had not been publicly seen since he and Vergara, 51, exclusively told Page Six that they were ending their marriage.

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the estranged couple told us in a statement last month.

“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.”

A source told us that Manganiello and the “Modern Family” alum “have been growing apart for a while now and are taking some distance from each other to contemplate their future.”

Two days after the announcement, the “Magic Mike” star filed for divorce from Vergara, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six at that time, the exes — who tied the knot in 2015 — had a prenuptial agreement and agreed to each keep their own assets that were accumulated during the union.

Page Six exclusively reported last month that Manganiello and Vergara were calling it quits after seven years of marriage.

However, on July 31, the “America’s Got Talent” judge filed to keep “miscellaneous jewelry, artwork and other personal effects,” as well as any earnings she made before, during and after their date of separation.

Vergara is allowing her estranged husband to keep their pooch, Bubbles, after previously stating that the 10-year-old Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix “hated” her.

While the Colombian actress — who is mom to son Manolo, 31, with her ex-husband, Joe Gonzalez — and Manganiello have remained mum about their split, a source told Page Six that their marriage ended in part because they disagreed on the topic of children.

A friend close to the couple said the “Magic Mike” star was “threatened” by Vergara’s success.

An insider close to the “True Blood” star told us he’s always wanted to be a dad and that those feelings had only intensified in recent years.

On the other hand, a friend close to the estranged couple told Page Six that Vergara is “living her best life. She’s spending time with her friends after being stifled in a relationship with a largely unsupportive partner. 

“Sofía was always there to take care of Joe, while his career was never what it was when they met. I think he’s been threatened by her success and joie de vivre.”

Following their split, Vergara has been having a hot girl summer.

Most recently, the “Soul Plane” actress was spotted enjoying a night out at the Los Angeles stop of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour.
