Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello are engaged after six months of dating


Not to be crude, but I would imagine Sofia Vergara’s knockers are so amazing that men regularly propose to her as soon as they see her (them?). I seriously believe that men see her and think “I HAVE TO LOCK THIS DOWN.” Sofia was previously engaged to Nick Loeb, which was an on-and-off thing, but he never got to lock it down. Perhaps because he’s kind of a d-bag. And now Sofia is with Joe Manganiello, who always looks (to me) like the personification of a grunt. But Joe just had to propose as well.

It’s official: The world of wedded bliss just got a whole lot hotter. Sofía Vergara is engaged to Joe Manganiello, E! News confirms. The good-looking pair, who became inseparable after they first started dating in July, have yet to publicly announce the news, although a source tells E! News that the True Blood hottie popped the question on Christmas Day.

“I’ve never seen two people so truly in love,” a source says of the engaged lovebirds. “The way they talk to each other, touch each other. It’s incredible.”

Since coupling up, the super-sexy duo has not only been making headlines for their attractive appearance (seriously, have you ever seen a hotter couple?!), but also for their whirlwind romance, as the two quickly became quite serious following the end of Vergara’s engagement to former fiancé Nick Loeb.

In December, the couple prompted engagement speculation when they were spotted out jewelry shopping in Los Angeles, where Manganeillo purchased a $640 rose ring for his gorgeous girlfriend, and, less than one month later, they were photographed looking blissfully in love while on vacation in Hawaii.

[From E! News]

Well… it’s sweet. I actually don’t have a problem with them as a couple, and I think they’re probably very happy together. The thing that bugged Nick Loeb was that Sofia was just so famous and she was building her own empire/brand, but with Joe, I don’t see that being a problem. Joe seems very happy to have Sofia do her thing. Maybe I’m projecting on him and he’s really not the meathead I think he is, but I imagine for Sofia, dating/being engaged to Joe is very “easy.” It’s not fraught, it’s not a lot of drama, it’s not crazy. They just have fun and neither of them thinks too hard about it.

    Being engaged is easy. Getting married and staying married is hard work

    • joan says:


      They are both smarter than they look, BTW. He went to a really impressive university, she appears to have street smarts, and they both seem like they play up their sexy persona while playing down their brains.

  2. PunkyMomma says:

    Think of the beautiful babies.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Probably beautiful babies, but not necessarily. I personally know of a absolutely gorgeous couple who have the fugliest 2 children imaginable (and yes they are their actual offspring). So beauty + beauty does not always = beauty. Of course inner beauty makes all the difference, but this observation is strictly appearance based.

    • Splinter says:

      Wasn’t that one of the reasons why she split with the previous guy? I think he wanted a politician’s wife and family but she wanted to do her own thing. And also I don’t think that with her career, age and previous health issues (didn’t she fight cancer at some point?) a baby is on her list. But what do I know.

      • lunchcoma says:

        I have the same suspicions you do, Splinter. Sofia is 42, survived thyroid cancer, and already has a 22-year-old son. I get the feeling she may have already raised her child and isn’t interested in having any others.

      • Curious Cole says:

        I thought she gave an interview about freezing her eggs because she wants more children?? I admit I immediately thought of how gorgeous their kids would be too.

  3. SpookySpooks says:

    Too soon.
    But they do seem kinda perfect for eachother.

  4. smcollins says:

    Good for them! I wonder, though, if the wedding will happen just as quickly. Is it just me, or do these quicky engagements always seem to be followed by a super prolooooonged “planning period”? Hopefully they actually make it down the aisle. I think they make a fantastic couple. Congrats!

  5. Toot says:

    They just seem to really work for me, just seem to fit. Good luck to them.

  6. Nya says:

    lol they probably won’t make it down the aisle. He’s been engaged twice before in like the last five years and she just broke up with that Nick dude.

    In any case they’re both obnoxious as hell so good for them for finding each other and sparing others.

    • Cana says:

      They are so hilarious with their obviously forced and staged endless pr ops. She comes off as very J. Lo, in that she always has to have a man at all times. He is a douchebag bad mouthing everyone in Hollywood (remember that he is a unicorn in the biz). This is likely why his career is so severely stalled. That, and he is a notoriously bad actor. So Sofia is a steady paycheck because playing Stripper #3 in Magic Mike can’t pay that that much. Plus, he never met an envelope opening he didn’t attend.

      On a slightly different note, it is kind of sad that the only thing you read or hear about them is “they are so hot” or “I want to sit on his face”. Nothing interesting, intriguing, or remotely artistic. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson or Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt they are not. However, they seem like they would be delusional enough to think they are a power couple. Still, they will amuse the hell out of me as they continue to milk this relationship to Kardashian levels.

      • SteaminSam says:

        Hey, there’s something artistic about face-sitting, y’know! Bwahahahaha

      • QQ says:

        Marry Me Cana for:

        Stripper #3
        Envelope Opening

        For a Colombian pretty woman (Those Girls are NOTORIOUS on the Upclimbing and man-using… Think Less refined but way prettier Wisteria Sisters) with a Lot Going on and her History of dating REALLY REALLY rich dudes more in the background than herself… his is a severe downgrade?

      • Bridget says:

        QQ: She’s made SO MUCH MONEY herself these last few years, maybe she’s tired of dating the really really rich but icky dudes and just wants herself a pretty piece of man-meat?

    • Sabrine says:

      They’ll have fun for a while but eventually will tire of each other. I don’t know why they can’t just enjoy the relationship while it lasts without going the legally binding route. It’s not worth it and complicates a fast and easy breakup when it’s over. Maybe they want children and that’s why they are getting married?

  7. Victoria1 says:

    I’m heartbroken, I’d climb that like a tree!! But good for them

  8. Esmom says:

    It seems quick but sometimes when you’ve come out of bad relationships you tend to learn a lot about what you don’t need. So when you find something that seems to work, you lock it down quickly…I’ve seen this numerous times with friends and acquaintances. Timing is a big factor, too, so if they’re both ready to get married then maybe it’s not doomed.

  9. Mikasa says:

    WoW. This must be a new trend for celebrities this year, date a few months and get engaged! I guess if they lessen the dating period it would make their marriage period “seem” longer!! lol

  10. OhDear says:

    Congratulations, I guess? He seems like a douche and I thought she had a tendency to date men that in the end aren’t good to her.

  11. LAK says:

    I like these 2 people together.

  12. Lori says:

    Hope she bought herself a huge ring!

  13. danielle says:

    He seems to adore her and that last guy seemed like a douche, so good for them.

  14. Nene says:

    This is quite coarse but whenever I see a photo of them together I can’t help but imagine the level of hotness when they are ‘together’. Gosh, i’ve got a pretty dirty mind and it doesn’t help that Joe is physically my type. Boy, i’d hit that man like a fist of Thor!
    Congrats to them though.

    • Nya says:

      They probably just look in mirrors at themselves when they have sex.

      Not because they’re both so hot, but because they’re both so narcissistic.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I was already lol-ing at “personification of a grunt.” Between that and “hit that man like a fist of Thor” I’m done. Thanks, folks!

  15. Ginger says:

    I know Sofia is in her 40’s so I’m not sure if there will be babies but I hope so…they are so gorgeous I can’t look away from their photos! Beautiful babies!!! Congrats to them.

  16. InvaderTak says:

    They like to be engaged don’t they? Don’t see a wedding actually happening though.

  17. Ruth Dunbar says:

    Wasn’t this a PR relationship?

    • sills says:

      Yeah, BI sites have strongly suggested this one is a fauxmance. Do either of them have promotion coming up?

    • Lucinda says:

      That’s what I thought too. Glad to know I’m not the only one who was surprised by this. I actually thought they had already broken up. But if it is real, good for them. It’s kind of sad that I’ve become so cynical about some of these relationships.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I’ve heard this as well. Though sometimes the fauxmances end in engagement or marriage, and some of those couples even seem to be happy.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I thought so too, they were SOOO public about it when they got together. Could be, or maybe it started that way and grew into something more.
      Something about him bothers me, and I used to really like her but am kind of ambivalent about her now. But if it’s for real and they are happy, congrats.

  18. Sugar says:

    According to gossip this is a publicity romance so they’re never going to get married.

  19. Jess says:

    I bet they have amazing sex, I’m so jealous!

  20. Talie says:

    He’s good for her. His rep is very solid and somewhat wholesome, dare I say. And if she wants to appeal to that Walmart crowd to sell her wares, then he’s her guy.

  21. shizwhat says:

    They seem good together… not in that ethereal soul mate kind of way… but in that “we’re sexy and goofy and never going to settle down with anyone” kind of way.

  22. Joy says:

    Ok he’s ridiculously hot to me. I’m a sucker for that type. And can I just say I’m glad he’s with a woman his age. Yes she’s unrealistically hot, but still, she’s not 18 and I love that.

  23. Tig says:

    I think they will have a very long engagement w/no marriage. It’s all fun and games and new now, but really don’t see a marriage being the end result. Can’t wait to see the ring during upcoming awards season!

    • Jayna says:

      I think they might get married sooner rather than later/never. He had thrown out there before meeting her that Sofia was his crush.

      And what he said a little over a year ago (9/2013):

      “ELLE: A lot of actors get married young these days. Why settle down when the world is opening up to you?

      JM: You know, I was single long enough, and when I was, it wasn’t about putting notches in the bedpost.

      ELLE: Come on.

      JM: Whatever. I guess that happens for periods of time. But they were very short. Once you become famous, being single becomes a liability.

      ELLE: How so?

      JM: In the age of camera phones and screenshots and Twitter…. At the end of the day, I want to share my life with somebody, you know? I want picture albums. I want to look back at our time together. And I also want kids. And if you want kids, then you want marriage.”

      • Tig says:

        That’s a nice interview, but if he wants a baby w/o surrogate route, the clock is ticking for her. Maybe she’s already expecting-??

  24. MrsBPitt says:

    Seriously, her “knockers” could turn me into a lesbian!!!!!! So I can imagine, any man being mezmerised by those puppies!!!!! Not being sexist, just a realist….and very, very jealous!!!

  25. Jayna says:

    I thought it was sweet what her ex-fiance, Nic Loeb, said about her engagement to Joe.

    “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.”

    • RobN says:

      I thought it was sweet, too, but after reading it a couple of times, I kind of wonder whether the “true love” bit was actually a little mocking.

    • Bridget says:

      Nicer than his last comment “I like for girls to dress a little classier”

  26. scout says:

    Now that’s a MAN! I want to be ‘her’ right now, she can have my medicine man husband…for a while..then she can have Joe back and return mine.
    She said she was a Dental college student when she was younger before she became an actress, so she is pretty and intelligent too. Good luck, I like these two.

  27. Cupcake says:

    They just seem so right for each other, even it’s only for “right now.” I’m sure they are having a blast – Mazeltov!!!

  28. kri says:

    I don’t know if it’s PR or real..but at least JM seems like a decent kind. They have good body language….when I saw pics of her with Nick Loeb, I was honsetly concerned. He seemed quite mean. I don’t want to slander someone, but he kind of gave me a bad vibe.

  29. ava says:

    I love this couple. They seem just right for each other. People who are over 35 date for less time than 20 year olds. When you are older it seems people know what they want. Gook luck guys!

  30. Greek Chic says:

    Do these people get enganged because the want to get married eventually or means nothing to them? Because he and Sophia (and also have some other people in mind) get enganged all the time and then broke up.

  31. Jen43 says:

    I am happy for them. I hope they work out.

  32. Andrea says:

    These two make a hot couple. And how refreshing that they are actually close in age (she being a few years older than he)!

  33. Sophie says:

    She’s too old for him and he is a fame who’re in the 1st degree. They’re both only in this for publicity.

  34. Cornelius says:

    I think they seem perfect for each other

  35. Bread and Circuses says:

    Damn, they are a good-looking couple. Not quite Thor-and-Elsa levels of gorgeous, but damned fine.

  36. Leighton says:

    Personification of a grunt. Love it. However, I listened to the Nerdist podcast with JM and was surprised at what a huge–and surprisingly articulate–dork he was. Huge comic book nerd, etc. It was kind of endearing.
