Sofia Vergara Declares Her Affection for New Boyfriend – You Might Recognize Him!

Sofia Vergara, previously known for her marriage to Magic Mike actor Joe Manganiello, seemed to re-enter the dating scene swiftly after their split.

Now, it appears Vergara is back on the market and has already found companionship. Read on to discover who she’s dating—you might recognize him!

While making waves with her latest series, “Griselda,” where she portrays a formidable Colombian businesswoman pioneering one of history’s most successful cartels, Vergara’s personal life has also grabbed attention. Following her widely publicized split from actor husband Joe Manganiello, rumors of a new romance have surfaced.

In October of last year, Vergara was spotted out to dinner in Beverly Hills with a dashing companion, Dr. Justin Saliman, an orthopedic surgeon. Clad in a black corset, purple suede pants, and black heels, the actress kept details of the outing under wraps, leaving speculation about the nature of their relationship unanswered.


Her date, Dr. Justin Saliman, pursued sports medicine studies at Stanford University, where he provided care for the San Francisco 49ers and Stanford athletes. He later earned his medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Currently practicing at the renowned Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, Dr. Saliman completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center of Columbia University in New York City.

Beyond his medical career, Dr. Saliman is recognized as an inventor. He is credited with developing the NovoStitch Pro Meniscal Repair System, a technology acquired by medical technology company Smith & Nephew in 2019 for a substantial $105 million. This success indicates his considerable financial status. Dr. Saliman continues to utilize the device for knee joint repairs and is regarded as one of the foremost experts in the field of meniscus tear repair.

Regarding his relationship with Vergara, just a month after their initial sighting in October, a source informed ET that their relationship was progressing positively, with the actress taking a deliberate approach to the pace of their connection.

Five months after their initial public appearance together, it appears Vergara is prepared to declare her affection for him. Taking to her Instagram story, the actress openly shared details about the man she was romantically involved with.

In a single post, she disclosed two significant revelations to her followers: first, that she had undergone significant knee surgery, and second, that she was deeply in love!

She shared a picture of Dr. Saliman at her bedside. In the photo, Sofia’s post-operative leg is visibly wrapped up, with the doctor standing beside her in dark blue scrubs, his hand gently resting on her operated-on knee. In the caption accompanying the picture, she wrote, “If u ever get a [major] knee surgery make sure u Get a handsome doctor who will sleep with u that night!!!! Luv u Dr @jdsaliman.”

This unexpected revelation is a delightful surprise from the actress, who has maintained privacy regarding her love life since her divorce from Manganiello. Just earlier this month, the couple finalized their divorce, officially declaring them legally single.
