‘This Is Us’ star Justin Hartley just took his new romance with girlfriend Sofia Pernas to the next level.
Justin Hartley finally confirmed he’s dating Sofia Pernas on Dec. 31, when he posted a gorgeous black and white photo on Instagram late Thursday evening. The This Is Us star, 43, can be seen snuggling up to his new girlfriend in the photo, just before the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve. And alongside the picture, Justin wrote, “Last minutes of 2020 here in LA. Bring on 2021! Happy New Year!”
It was an extra special post for Justin on Instagram, as this was the first time he’s ever posted a photo of himself with Sofia since they started dating. And his 16-year-old daughter, Isabella, appears to approve of the romance as she commented, “happy new year!!!”
But that’s not all. Sofia, 31, also posted an image of the pair on her own Instagram page and confirmed that she and Justin have been quarantining together amid the pandemic. “Sayonara 2020, it’s been real,” she captured the colorful photo seen below. “Happy New Year from our quarantine den to yours.”
Justin and the Blood & Treasures actress first ignited romance speculation when they were pictured kissing in May 2020. Rumors then heated up in August, when they shared Instagram Story photos with similar captions. Now, they appear ready to share their relationship with the world.
Before dating Sofia, Justin was married to Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause. They wed in 2017, but filed for divorce in 2019, and she has since moved on with Dancing With the Stars pro Keo Motsepe. Prior to marrying Chrishell, Justin was previously married to Lindsay Hartley from 2004 to 2012, and they share Isabella.
