Joe Manganiello and Cailtin O’Connor‘s romance shows no signs of slowing down.

The pair were first linked after meeting in a hot tub in September 2023 at an “unofficial” post-premiere party for the HBO series, Winning Time, according to People. O’Connor portrays Dyan Cannon in the drama, which follows the professional and personal lives of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s.

Their unexpected meet-cute came nearly two months after the True Blood actor and Sofía Vergara announced their separation.

Manganiello filed for divorce from the Modern Family alum on July 19, 2023, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split, per court documents obtained by Us Weekly. Vergara later told Spanish newspaper El País in January 2024 that they didn’t see eye to eye on expanding their family, as she “didn’t want to be an old mom.” (The actress is mom to son Manolo, whom she welcomed in 1991 with ex-husband Joe Gonzalez).

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the former couple wrote in a joint statement posted via Instagram at the time. “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.”

Manganiello and Vergara finalized their divorce in February – just one month before a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the Deal or No Deal Island host’s romance with O’Connor is moving full-steam ahead.
