Manganiello, 46, and the Modern Family actress, 51, wed in November 2015. It was unclear where Vergara — who is a mom to 31-year-old Manolo Gonzalez Vergara with ex Joe Gonzalez — stood on the topic of kids at the time of their $3 million Palm Beach, Flor., wedding.
Per sources, the America's Got Talent judge's nasty court battle with ex-fiancé Nick Loeb over the custody of two frozen embryos from her 2013 IVF treatments that he wanted brought to term affected her need to expand her family despite the judge ultimately ruling in Vergara's favor.
The insider close to the gorgeous stars also clarified that the Magic Mike actor's sobriety did not impact the marriage and that there was no infidelity from either party.
Despite her hesitancy after the frozen embryo debacle, Vergara was reportedly willing to give motherhood another go at one point. As OK! previously reported, the Columbian star did want to give Manganiello the child he always wanted.
