It’s been six short, super-steamy months but it looks like Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are set to sashay down the aisle and exchange smoldering “I dos.”
It seemed like fate was playing a cruel joke on us normal folks when two of the hottest people on the planet got together this summer. Come on — look at them! How is that fair? But obviously their sexiness and sheer animal magnetism brought them together. (Or perhaps the Magic Mike and True Blood actor is just a patient, patient man who finally found the courage to ask his “celeb crush” on a date.) Because, please. Who could resist this man?
And once again, just for good measure.
Where were we? Oh, yeah, E! Online confirms Sofia and Joe are engaged, with Joe popping the question on Christmas Eve. “I’ve never seen two people so truly in love,” a source close to the couple told E!. “The way they talk to each other, touch each other. It’s incredible.”
Vergara was previously in a long-term relationship with businessman Nick Loeb but they broke off their engagement in May. She began dating Manganiello a month later and many of us thought it was just a fun, flirty rebound — but they clearly proved us wrong.
And Loeb told Us Weekly that he couldn’t be happier for his ex. “She is beautiful and majestic and therefore to be loved. Beyond all else in life she deserves happiness, the kind that only true love can bring.”
While the couple haven’t made any official announcements, the Daily Mail has photos of Sofia and Joe in Hawaii, particularly shots of Vergara and a diamond ring on that special finger. The pair were not only celebrating the holidays but also Joe’s 38th birthday on Sunday. Sofia posted a sweet message to her “love” and, good Lord, could they be any hotter? Congrats to the gorgeous couple. That aisle is going to be smokin’!
