In the wake of his recent split from Sofía Vergara, Joe Manganiello appears to be finding solace in the company of actress Caitlin O'Connor. The 46-year-old "Spider-Man" star and the 33-year-old actress have been spotted together on multiple occasions, fueling speculation about the nature of their relationship.

According to sources, Manganiello and O'Connor first crossed paths at a screening event for Season 2 of "Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty." The duo reportedly bonded over their shared roots from the greater Pittsburgh area. Notably, the two were seen enjoying a jacuzzi session at the event, though they weren't alone.

Recent photographs obtained by Page Six show the pair leaving Gold's Gym in Venice, California. Manganiello, known for his roles in "True Blood" and "Magic Mike," was seen taking the driver's seat of his Cadillac SUV, with O'Connor accompanying him in the passenger seat.

This budding connection comes shortly after Manganiello's publicized divorce from Sofía Vergara, to whom he was married for seven years. In a joint statement released in July, the couple expressed their mutual decision to part ways, emphasizing their continued respect and care for each other. They requested privacy as they transition into this new chapter of their lives. An insider revealed to Page Six that the couple had been drifting apart for some time and were taking a break to reflect on their future together.

Manganiello officially filed for divorce two days after the announcement, citing irreconcilable differences. While the exact reasons for their split remain private, sources suggest that Manganiello's strong desire to start a family might have been a contributing factor. Vergara, 51, is already a mother to 31-year-old Manolo, from her previous marriage to Joe Gonzalez.

However, another source hinted at potential marital strife, suggesting that Vergara felt "stifled" with an unsupportive partner. Despite the end of her marriage, the "Modern Family" actress and "America's Got Talent" judge seems to be embracing her newfound freedom. In a recent interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Vergara mentioned her intent to "have fun" and was spotted enjoying summer concerts featuring artists like Karol G, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift.

As the entertainment world watches with bated breath, only time will tell if Manganiello's outings with O'Connor blossom into a full-fledged relationship or remain a fleeting connection.
