Wedding rumors are swirling! Sofia Pernas and Justin Hartley have made it official on the red carpet, but exactly how official are they? The couple was photographed walking the MTV Movie and TV Awards red carpet flaunting matching bands on their left ring fingers.
Sofia and Justin were spotted in Malibu earlier this month wearing the same rings as they vacationed with friends. Fans thought it was possible Justin’s was from his previous marriage, but it was definitely suspicious that they both had the same bling on their left ring fingers!
Justin Hartley showed off the bling just five months after announcing their relationship in a New Year’s Eve post. His announcement came right before his divorce with Chrishell Stause was finalized in January 2021. The big question at the time was: When exactly did Justin start dating Sofia Pernas?
Some sources say the two began dating in May 2020, but E News! reported, “Although Justin and Sofia were not a couple on the show, writers and producers loved pairing the two actors together because they shared great chemistry.” This statement addressed the scandalous kiss that photographers caught between the co-stars.
From 2015 to 2016, Justin and Sofia worked together on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. Justin played the uncle of the character Sofia was dating. After leaving the show, Sofia Pernas went on to star in Jane The Virgin and Blood & Treasure where she’s slowly made a name for herself. The actress likes to talk about her Moroccan heritage, occasionally appearing on TV shows to cook meals representing her culture.
Justin Hartley started seeing his ex-wife, Chrishell Stause, in 2016. He met his now-partner around the same time. Justin isn’t known for being the best at relationships. His first wife, Lindsey Korman, lasted from 2004 to 2012. The couple share a child together. Then later Justin reportedly used a text message to tell Chrishell he wanted a divorce.
Chrishell Stause cried on an episode of Selling Sunset about how “blindsided” she felt about the end of her marriage. “It’s just a lot all at once because everybody in the whole world knows,” Strouse sobbed. “I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to?”
Nevertheless, Justin Hartley may have found his match in Sofia Pernas. Whether or not the co-stars are married, it’s clear they’re very much in love.
