"This Is Us" star Justin Hartley shared PDA with his new love interest, the Moroccan actress Sofia Pernas, six months after he filed for divorce from his estranged wife, Chrishell Stause.

The reality star got pictured kissing his new love, Sofia Pernas, on Friday, as she dropped him off for a doctor's appointment in Los Angeles at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute on Friday.

Sofia and Justin first met back in 2015, when she joined the cast of "The Young and The Restless" as Justin's (Adam Newman) new girlfriend on the soap, Marisa Sierras.

Justin starred in the soap from 2014 until 2016, the same year his estranged wife, Chrishell Stause, joined the cast as Bethany Bryant, interestingly enough. 


According to a source that spoke with E! News, producers loved pairing Justin and Sofia up in the soap because of the "great chemistry" they shared on set. However, it is unclear when the couple started seeing each other.

Chrishell and Justin got married during a romantic and rustic ceremony in 2017. Held at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, the former couple exchanged their vows in front of 75 close family members and friends. 


But two years into their marriage, it started crumbling, and they split in July 2019. But a few months later, on November 22, 2019, Justin decided to file for divorce.

The court documents reportedly obtained by E! News stated the reason for their split as "irreconcilable differences," and in doing so, he took steps to end his second union. Justin first married the actress Lindsay Korman, with whom he shares a teenaged daughter Isabella. 


Sharing smooches with her new man Justin during her downtime, Sofia kept a busy acting career since she left "The Young and The Restless" in 2016. Landing a role as Catalina in "Jane The Virgin" right after leaving the soap, Sofia played the position until 2017 - when she starred in another two series, including "The Brave." 

Currently, Sofia portrays the role of Lexi Vaziri in the television action and adventure series "Blood & Treasure," wherein an art thief and an antiquities expert come together to fight crime. 

Sofia seemingly gets along with Justin's daughter, Isabella, as well. Justin Hartley and his first wife Lindsay Korman tied the knot in 2003, and they welcomed Isabella to the world a year later. 

Lindsay and Justin reportedly also split due to "irreconcilable differences," and they divorced in 2012 when Isabella was eight years old.
