Sofia Pernas Confirms What We Suspected About Her Relationship With Justin Hartley's Daughter

Sofia Pernas is amazed by her husband Justin Hartley's daughter Isabella. According to US Magazine, the "This is Us" actor and Pernas first met back in 2015 while on set of "The Young and Restless," and worked alongside each other for about a year. Ironically, that's the same set where Hartley met his ex-wife, "Selling Sunset" star Chrishell Stause. Hartley and Stause began dating in 2014 and later got married in 2017. According to In Touch, the actor shockingly filed for divorce in November 2019 just two years after tying the knot.

"I obviously really truly love him and it's unfortunate the way that everything happened," Stause told ET in 2020. While the timing of the breakup was unfortunate for both stars, Hartley managed to move on and find love again. During an interview with Haute Living, the actor explained he wasn't "available" when he was first introduced to Pernas. "Timing has a lot to do with that," he said. "I'm very lucky to not only have found 'the one,' but I found her when she was available and the timing was right."

According to People, Hartley took his friendship with Pernas to the next level when they started dating in 2020. The couple got married a year later in a private ceremony. The "Blood & Treasure" star is now a stepmom to Hartley's teenage daughter Isabella and, as we expected, she's loving every minute of it. 

Sofia Pernas has kind words for her stepdaughter Isabella

Sofia Pernas recently opened up to Page Six about her stepdaughter Isabella Hartley, giving insight into their relationship. "She's so wise," Pernas dished. "I mean, that girl, she's got it figured out!" The "Jane the Virgin" actor also spoke to the outlet about Isabella's boyfriend who she describes as "beautiful" and "wonderful." 

"It's rare when you get someone 18 being that precocious about what they want in a partner and not messing up and figuring out from your mistakes later," Pernas said. "She's great." While being a parent and watching your child date is never easy, the actor insists her husband Justin Hartley has "lucked out" because his daughter is extremely smart. 

Isabella has reportedly been dating her boyfriend for several months after she debuted the romance on Instagram in November 2021. "You make every day better. im so so lucky," she wrote to her beau in her caption. Just because Isabella's growing up fast doesn't mean she has lost the adoration of her father Justin. The "This Is Us" star, who shares Isabella with his first ex-wife Lindsay Korman-Hartley (per The Sun), gave a shoutout to his "kind and beautiful angel" daughter on her birthday in July 2021 on Instagram. "I'm so very proud of you!" he wrote.
