Chatting with Page Six, the successful businessman - who split from the Modern Family actress earlier this year - says he totally gets why Sofia, 41, would fall for the perfectly sculpted True Blood star.
“He’s a good-looking guy,” Nick said.
“I guess if I was a girl, I’d be dating him, too.”
Last week, it was widely reported that the Colombian bombshell was still very much in love with her ex, despite her sizzling hot new romance with Joe.
"Sofia has been speaking and texting with Nick, as she is still in love with him. The real reason she didn't take Joe to the Emmys is she still loves Nick...She is even still publicly liking his photos for the world to see on Twitter,” a source told Page Six.
Sofia and Nick started dating back in 2010 but called it quits in May this year.
A few months later, the mother-of-one just happened to find love again in the massively bulky arms of handsome Joe, 37.
The pair have since been dubbed the 'sexiest' couple in Hollywood and recently enjoyed a sexy Mexican getaway together.
