Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
Vergara and Manganiello crossed paths at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in May of 2014.
Vergara was a little hesitant to go on a first date with Joe given her recent breakup.
As mentioned below by Joe to Haute Living “Our first date was her giving me every reason why it would never work out,” he told Haute Living. “Like, ‘You’re too young, you’re an actor, you’re this, you’re that,’ and she was just doing it to hear herself say it. She was trying to talk herself out of going there.”
During an interview with Extra, Vergara confirmed that she and Manganiello were indeed an item.
“You know, I’m just having a great time. It’s a special time in my life, and I’m trying not to think too much about it,” she said on-air. “It’s something very new, so we will see what happens.” When the Extra reporter followed up by asking if Vergara’s family approved of Joe, she responded, “What is there not to approve of?” Soon after, she posted an Instagram photo of herself and a glorious bouquet of red roses, which we can safely assume came from Manganiello.
