Despite the fact that Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, her husband of nearly eight years, just announced their divorce, the Modern Family actress is enjoying some fun in the sun.

On July 17, the 51-year-old actress shared a trio of swimsuit photos on Instagram from her trip along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. In the first snap, Vergara posed in her blue one-piece with black leopard print as she stood next to a sun lounger with a bottle of water in one hand and a glass in another. She knelt on the chair in another photo, while the final snap provided a cheeky view of the backside of her thong swimwear. She aptly tagged personal trainer Natalia Botero in the snap, as well as Caruso, a luxury hotel, and her own sunscreen and beauty brand, toty, in the others.

“Last days of vacay!” she wrote in her caption. “Even when u r so hot I love u Ravello!!!😁😁.”

Several of the America’s Got Talent judge’s 30.6 million IG followers were quick to comment.

“This is what single and 🔥 looks like!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” actress and Modern Family costar Julie Bowen applauded.

The same day, the couple issued an exclusive statement to Page Six regarding their plans to divorce. “We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” it read. “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.”
