After about a year of dating, Justin Hartley wed former co-star Sofia Pernas last year. The “This Is Us” actor recently expressed his experience in an interview with “Haute Living”.

Justin Hartley and the “Blood & Treasure” actress Sofia Pernas first met in 2015 when they started working together on “The Young and the Restless”. At the time, Hartley was in a relationship with Chrishell Stause. However, Hartley and Sofia sparked romance in 2020. After finalizing his divorce from Chrishell Stause, Hartley and Sofia get marriage. Hartley explained that situation as “incredible when you’re not forcing things.”

Hartley and Chrishell got married in 2017 and two years later Hartley filed for divorce. The actor reflected on that period and said, “You meet in different capacities. We didn’t work together that closely, and we didn’t work together that long,” He also said, “I knew that she was very kind and very nice. I liked being around her. But I was in a different place in my life. I wasn’t available. Timing has a lot to do with that…I’m very lucky to not only have found ‘the one,’ but I found her when she was available and the timing was right.”

Then Hartley added, “We got married in March, and we are so happy!” he told the outlet. “It’s incredible when you’re not forcing things. It doesn’t have to be that hard. You just meet the right person and you just go, ‘Oh, this is amazing. It’s just so wonderful!’ You’re so attracted and so attached to this person. You just love this person so much.”

The actor continued, “Even though we’ve only been married a few months, it’s hard to remember what it was like without her. When I re-met her, I just knew. It’s so interesting about the human heart and the human mind. It’s not codependency; I’m just at peace with myself. I feel loved and I feel appreciated. I know she feels the same way. We just have a really great relationship and a really terrific family. It’s healthy and it’s wonderful.”

Then he concluded, “I’m fulfilled in so many ways. My daughter is doing great in high school—she’s off to college soon, which is sad, but it’s also very exciting,” he explained. “I’ve met my life partner. I’ve got a really great imagination, but I could not have imagined someone like this. She’s off the charts.”
