Season 3 of Selling Sunset was equal parts romance and heartbreak. The public and sudden divorce of Chrishell Stause from her husband, Justin Hartley, was front and center in the latest installment of the Netflix series. Since then, all eyes have been on Justin, who allegedly told Chrishell that their marriage was over through text message in November 2019.
After watching the newest season, Selling Sunset viewers have only one question: Who is Justin's new girlfriend, Sofia Pernas? Here’s what to know about Justin and Sofia's relationship.
April 2015: Sofia meets Justin on the set of The Young and the Restless.
From 2014 to 2016, Justin portrayed Adam Newman and Gabriel Bingham on the longtime soap opera. In 2015, Sofia joined the cast as Marisa Sierras, Justin’s on-screen girlfriend. The two worked together for a year until the actor departed.
May 2020: Sofia and Justin are first spotted together in the spring.
Roughly half a year after news broke that Justin and Chrishell were splitting up, Sofia and the This Is Us star were photographed outside of a Los Angeles doctor’s office. According to TMZ, Sofia appeared to have dropped off the 43-year-old actor and later picked him up. The former costars were caught sharing a kiss.
A week later, People reported that they “had been dating for several weeks" and were “spending a lot of time at his house.” There was also some context given about that particular pic that began sparking rumors.
"She was very much a doting girlfriend. She dropped him off in the morning and returned to pick him up a few hours later," a source told the outlet. "She helped him into the car and had a cold drink for him. They returned to his house and were there the whole weekend together."
August 2020: Sofia and Justin appear to confirm their relationship on Instagram.
Around the time of Selling Sunset’s season 3 premiere, it seemed like the couple was spending time together.
January 2021: Sofia and Justin become Instagram official after celebrating New Year’s together.
After months of speculation, Justin posted a photo on Instagram of him and Sofia ringing in 2021. He wrote: “Last minutes of 2020 here in LA. Bring on 2021! Happy New Year!”
Shortly after, the actress posted a different photo on her own Instagram page, sharing that she was quarantining with the TIU star. “Sayonara 2020, it’s been real,” she captioned it. “Happy New Year from our quarantine den to yours ❤️.”
Fans were quick to comment on both photos with many voicing their support for the new couple.
May 2021: Sofia and Justin attend the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
But that's not all. Us Weekly reported that while walking the red carpet at the event, Justin and Sofia were spotted wearing matching rings on that finger. You can see Justin's band in the photo below, and in a photo obtained by Us Weekly, Sofia also appears to be wearing a diamond band.
Needless to say, the internet is now speculating that the two tied the knot in secret (though neither Sofia nor Justin have confirmed this to be the case).
