Has Sofía Vergara found her rebound man after divorcing Joe Manganiello earlier this summer? It looks like it!

Three months after she first confirmed her split from the Magic Mike actor, the Modern Family alum has been spotted for the first time with a new man by her side.

Back in July, the America's Got Talent judge, who married Joe in 2015, confirmed her split in a statement to Page Six, which read: "We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives."

Now she appears to have moved on, and over the weekend, Sofía was spotted out having dinner in Los Angeles with Justin Saliman, an orthopedic surgeon.

For the date night, the actress dressed perfectly sultry in a strapless, black lace bustier paired with purple velvet trousers, black pumps and a Bottega Veneta pouch purse. Meanwhile her supposed new beau looked smart in a navy knit button-down paired with classic blue jeans.

The two were later spotted leaving in a car together, the surgeon in the driver's seat.

After photos of Sofía and Justin's date night were shared by Page Six, netizens had a lot to say about the pair, with one fan writing: "She said I am gonna have a good time regardless and I'm here for it Sofia!" as others added: "Good for her," and: "CUTE!"

Others though couldn't help but discuss Justin's appearance, mainly his resemblance to comedian Jerry Seinfeld or even Sofía's ex Nick Loeb. One fan joked: "I thought that was Jerry Seinfeld at first," as others weighed in with: "Looks like Jerry Seinfeld. They would be a freakin' hilarious couple if they ever did date," or others argued: "He looks exactly like her ex," and: "He looks just like her ex, Nick Loeb!"
