People all over the world have different ways of welcoming the new year. For Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas, sharing a sweet selfie of them together was the way to go. The news of their relationship was confirmed by a source that spoke to People last year in May. Past 8 months have been looking good for the couple as is clearly seen from their adorable post on Instagram.
”Last minutes of 2020 here in LA. Bring on 2021! Happy New Year!,” Hartley wrote beneath a black and white photo of him and Pernas on Instagram. The duo looked new year ready as they posed for the camera from their kitchen. Hartley looked dapper in a formal suit and gelled hair while Pernas kept it elegant with a striped dress. Maybe headed to a NYE party later?
Hartley’s post came not long after his girlfriend bid farewell to 2020 with a sweet outdoor selfie. ”Sayonara 2020, it’s been real. Happy New Year from our quarantine den to yours ❤️,” the 31 year old actress wrote in the caption on Instagram. The couple, dressed in winter wear were all smiles as they huddled together for the photo.
Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas came across each other on the set of Young And The Restless back in 2015 and maintained a friendly relationship before hitting it off soon after Hartley’s controversial split from Chrishell Stause. The 43 year old actor had filed for a divorce with Another Time actress in November 2019 before he was spotted getting cozy with his Young And The Restless co-star in May.
Stause was taken aback by the move as she revealed in season 3 of her Netflix Show, Selling Sunset that Hartley broke the news to her via text. A heartbroken Stause said on the show, ”I’m just kind of in shock with it all. It’s a lot all at once because everybody in the whole world knows. I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to now?” The ex-couple were married for two years before going separate ways.
Justin Hartley had also been married to his Passions alum, Lindsay Korman for 8 years before they called it quits in 2012. They are parents to a 16 year old daughter, Isabella Hartley.
Chrishell Stause has now happily moved on with her new beau, Keo Motsepe who she was first seen in public with, earlier in December. The new couple also celebrated their first new years together as they cleaned up nice to wish Stause’s followers a happy new year.
