Despite ending their marriage, Sophia and Chad had to continue working together on the teen drama for five years. “When you have to work with somebody for another half a decade, you kind of have to deal with it,” she explained on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in 2014. “Because, for me, at the end of the day, my job is my priority. I think at the end of it really let me just let go of it.”

Sophia found love again when she married Grant Hughes in June 2022 after two years of dating. However, the duo announced they split in August 2023 after 13 months of marriage. “[They] were friends for 10 years and bonded during COVID through their love of community service,” an insider told People at the time. “They continue to run their nonprofit together and remain good friends.”

The Chicago P.D. alum has not publicly discussed her divorce from Grant. Neither Sophia nor Grant requested spousal support in their divorce documents, and the businessman listed the reason for the divorce as “irreconcilable differences” when he responded to her August divorce filing in September.
