Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is ready for a new man in her life after her divorce with actor Joe Mangganiello last July.
The 51-year old Colombian actress was photographed on a date with 49-year old Dr. Justin Saliman.
Dr. Justin Saliman, MD is an orthopedic surgery specialist in Los Angeles, California and has over 21 years of experience in the medical field. He graduated from University of Colorado At Denver in 2001. He is affiliated with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
A source tells Entertainment Tonight: “Things are going great between the two. They like each other a lot, but Sofia is also taking things slow. Sofia and Justin have a lot of fun together and Sofia always keeps everyone around her laughing and in positive spirits. Justin likes that she takes pride in keeping her personal life private, that she’s up front and honest, and that she can be her genuine self with him."
As for how Vergara's family and friends feel about her new romance, the source says they "just want her to be happy."
"They have been a good support system and are always uplifting her and reminding her of her own inner strength.
“Sofia is in a healthy space and feeling good about where her personal and professional life both stand.
"Sofia is striving to be the best person she can be and focused on learning from the past in order to create a better and more fruitful future," the source says.
After her divorce, Vergara became empowered and that she can close the previous chapter in her life without any animosity.
"Joe and Sofia have both accepted that they're moving on and it's a very mutual feeling. They equally wish each other well,” the source adds.
Manganiello has likewise moved on. The Magic Mike actor is “casually seeing" actress Caitlin O'Connor.
O'Connor, 33, was a cast member on the series finale of Two and a Half Men on CBS. She has also appeared in Comedy Central's Tosh.O and Key & Peele.
She also starred in a national commercial for Dave & Busters in 2016. She is also best known as the host of ArsenicTV and for Maxim Magazine.
