Justin Hartley, who was previously married to Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause, has opened up about his relationship with Sofia Pernas, who he tied the knot with in March earlier this year.

In an interview with Haute Living, the This Is Us star reflected on married life with Sofia, saying, "It’s incredible when you’re not forcing things. It doesn’t have to be that hard. You just meet the right person and you just go, ‘Oh, this is amazing. It’s just so wonderful!’"

He added that "Even though [they've] only been married a few months, it’s hard to remember what it was like without [Sofia]," explaining that, "When I re-met her, I just knew.

"It’s so interesting about the human heart and human mind. It’s not a codependency; I’m just at peace with myself. I feel loved and I feel appreciated. I know she feels the same way. We just have a really great relationship and a really terrific family."

His comments come following a highly-publicised divorce from Chrishell Stause, who he was married to for two years between 2017-19. Chrishell discussed her reaction to finding out about Justin and Sofia's wedding, saying (during an episode of Selling Sunset):

"My ex-husband Justin is remarried to someone I know from back in the day, pretty well, and a lot of things made sense after finding that out. I wish them the best. You know, I think that actually, if anything, it felt good to know that. It felt like a little bit of closure."

Following the divorce, Chrishell went on to date her co-star Jason Oppenheim. However, the pair recently announced that they're going their separate ways, with Chrishell citing their "ideas for family ultimately not being aligned" as the reason behind the split.

In Justin's interview with Haute Living, he also explained that when he first met Sofia, he only saw her as a coworker, saying he wasn't "available."

“You meet in different capacities. We didn’t work together that closely, and we didn’t work together that long," Justin explained. "I knew that she was very kind and very nice. I liked being around her.

"But I was in a different place in my life. I wasn’t available. Timing has a lot to do with that. I’m very lucky to not only have found ‘the one,’ but I found her when she was available and the timing was right.”
