Romance rumors are swirling around Joe Manganiello and Caitlin O’Connor.
The “Magic Mike” star — who is in the midst of divorcing Sofía Vergara after seven years of marriage — was seen looking cozy with the “Winning Time” actress in September 2023 while leaving a gym together.
While neither Manganiello nor O’Connor has commented on the nature of their relationship, they raised eyebrows due to their 13-year age gap — and his ongoing separation from the “Modern Family” star.

A source told us at the time that Manganiello and Vergara’s marriage may have crumbled due to his desire to start a family with the “America’s Got Talent” judge, who shares an adult son, Manolo, with her first husband, Joe Gonzalez.
Manganiello and Vergara tied the knot in November 2015.
