This Is Us star Justin Hartley managed to shade his first two wives Lindsay Korman and Chrishell Stause while gushing over why he believed his third wife Sofia Pernas was ‘the one.’

‘It’s incredible when you’re not forcing things,’ the 44-year-old Daytime Emmy nominee said in his Haute Living cover story.

‘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!”‘

Justin added: ‘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. It’s healthy and it’s wonderful.’

Hartley was dating the 40-year-old Selling Sunset star when he and the Moroccan-born, OC-raised 32-year-old co-starred in 35 episodes of CBS soap The Young and the Restless between 2015-2016.

‘I wasn’t available. Timing has a lot to do with that,’ the Illinois native explained.

‘I’m very lucky to not only have found “the one,” but I found her when she was available and the timing was right.’ 

The 44-year-old Daytime Emmy nominee said in his Haute Living cover story: '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!"'

Justin was first publicly pictured kissing Sofia on May 29, 2020 – six months after ‘blindsiding’ Chrishell with divorce papers to end their two-year marriage.

‘When I re-met her, I just knew,’ Hartley said of his ‘life partner’. ‘We got married in March, and we are so happy!’

Last month, Stause revealed on her Netflix series Selling Sunset: ‘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.’

The two-time SAG Award winner said Pernas makes him ‘want to be a better man’ quoting Jack Nicholson’s line from James L. Brooks’ 1997 dramedy As Good As It Gets.

‘I want to rise to the occasion because she’s so great. She does make me want to be a better person, and [this kind of love] certainly does complete me,’ Justin noted.

‘Everything is easier with her in my life. I also feel like I’m better at stuff. I learn from her. She speaks five languages. She’s brilliant, she’s incredible, she’s fun to look at. Everything about her is amazing – she’s just hilarious.’

Hartley’s first marriage was to his Passions castmate Lindsay Korman for eight years ending in 2012, and they share 17-year-old daughter Isabella Justice.

‘My daughter is doing great in high school – she’s off to college soon, which is sad, but it’s also very exciting,’ the self-described clean freak said.

Justin will next conclude his role as Kevin Pearson in the 18-episode sixth (and final) season of This Is Us, which premieres January 4 on NBC.

‘If I had to give a percentage, I’d say we’re 50% alike,’ Hartley estimated.

‘It would depend on what script I just read. There are times where he makes decisions and goes about life in a way that I’m like, “I would never do any of these things.” And there are other times where I’m like, “That’s exactly what I would do.”

‘And there are still other times where he does things where I’m like, “I’ve never done that, but I think I’m going to start doing that because it’s a really good way to go about things.” I do learn from him, in a weird way. I know that Kevin doesn’t really exist, but much like reading from a book, I have learned a lot from playing him.’
