A source told ET on Monday that 44-year-old Hartley and 31-year-old Pernas are married and that their ceremony was private after the two wore matching wedding rings at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. News of Hartley and Pernas' nuptials came just four months after the actor finalized his divorce from Stause.
A source tells ET that 39-year-old Stause is a little taken aback by the speed of Hartley and Pernas' relationship.
"Chrishell feels like things happened pretty fast between Justin and Sofia and she is a little surprised by their marriage," the source says. "Chrishell is trying to stay positive and busy. She is focused on her real estate career, filming Selling Sunset, and surrounding herself with good friends and loved ones."
"I obviously really truly love him and it's unfortunate the way that everything happened and the timing of everything, because I still had a month to go of shooting the show when this all went down," she also told ET. "Hopefully we can get to a place where one day we will look back at this and laugh, I don't know… hopefully. It's very unfortunate and relationships are hard."
Meanwhile, Hartley told ET last July that he was "a happy guy."
"I sleep like a baby. I don't have anything on my mind," he said. "I treat people the way I want to be treated and I have lovely friends who love me and I love them. And I've got this wonderful daughter, and I've got a great family, and I am a very, very lucky, lucky individual."
