Is Sofia Vergara okay with Joe Manganiello walking out the door? The Colombian beauty seemingly hinted at her happiness in being alone following speculations of the spouses' rift.

The voluptuous queen and the Hollywood heartthrob need little introduction, given their frequent recognition as one of the industry's most beautiful and influential entertainers. Although their careers continue to thrive, the couple's marriage appears rocky.

Rumors of troubles in their union began circulating when the stunning model's birthday getaway did not include her beau. Fans' worries skyrocketed after the "Magic Mike" actor dropped a "cold" tribute to his wife. Now, the Barranquilla native seems to be dancing away her perceived problems.

Sofia Vergara Fuels Concerns About Her Marriage By Partying To An Iconic Breakup Song

Although the dynamic duo are yet to address the ongoing narrative about their love life, their actions continue to raise eyebrows, with the "Hot Pursuit" actress stirring the pot in her latest post. Taking to her Instagram Story, the 51-year-old shared a fun video of herself inside a restaurant.

In the clip, the mother of one flaunted her famous curves in a spaghetti-strap dress designed with red and white patterns. The outfit featured a deep plunge v-neckline that showcased the entertainer's generous bosom, while the form-fitting style accentuated the TV personality's flat stomach and voluptuous hips.

Although the brunette was seated at a table, it did not stop the "Chasing Papi" star from showing off her dance skills. Unleashing her Colombian prowess, the Glamour Award winner threw her hands up, whipping her hair from side to side as she shook her shoulders and hips to Gloria Gaynor's iconic breakup song.

The 51-year-old was not alone, as the video captured most of the restaurant's guests actively singing and dancing to the 1978 track "I Will Survive." The melody, performed from the female perspective, detailed the survival of a heartbreak.

Could Vergara be using Gaynor's emotional lyrics to express what was happening behind the doors of her matrimonial home? That question would continue to burn brightly in fans' minds as they believed the spouses' chemistry had diminished.

These devotees of the couple aired their concerns days earlier on the "Modern Family" star's 51st birthday. Commemorating the occasion, Manganiello shared two pictures on his Instagram page that seemingly depicted his rumored row with his wife.

The first slide was a poor-quality throwback snap of the lovebirds, while the second image featured a cryptic ornament with lights. The "Rampage" actor captioned the post in Spanish, translating to the simple message: "Happy Birthday, Sofia."

Surprised by his lack of affection, the Pittsburgh native's followers rushed to the comments. Many called out the entertainer for his lackluster post, while others noted he had celebrated his dog Bubbles' tenth birthday with more excitement.

“Something is off. Cold message for her and has two stories about his dog’s birthday. And Sofia has not even said thank you,” someone noted. “Am I the only one who doesn’t like the way it sounds? ‘Sofia’…. not even ‘My love, My beloved wife,'” another person chimed.

Vergara faced similar opinions following her birthday celebrations in Italy without Manganiello. Fans noticed the actor's absence in her Instagram updates and queried the multi-hyphenate star about his whereabouts.

“Where’s Joe @sofiavergara?” a social media user wailed, with another writing: “But where is hubby? Not in a picture anywhere. And they put their house up for sale.”

Inside Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello's Longtime Relationship

While the speculations about the spouses' marriage remained uncertain, it was necessary to remember how far the duo had come. Looking back at the timeline of their romance, the pair owed fellow actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson a big thank you.

The actress's "Modern Family" co-star introduced the pair at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner in June 2014. Although Manganiello was interested, he could not pursue Vergara as she was engaged to Nick Loeb at the time.

As fate would have it, the then-couple separated a few weeks later, and the "Sabotage" actor begged Ferguson for the Colombian beauty's number. The model initially had reservations about dating again, but the Pittsburgh native quickly charmed her.

Two months after their first meeting, the pair confirmed their relationship and moved in together by November. A month later, Manganiello proposed to Vergara during the lovebirds' Hawaiian getaway for the holidays.

On November 22, 2015, the entertainers tied the knot at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida before enjoying a tropical honeymoon at Parrot Cay, a private island in Turks and Caicos.
