Gloria from Modern Family, Sofia Vergara, is all set to lead the reality show America’s Got Talent as a judge. She’s been married to Joe Manganiello for four years now and he’ll surely is excited for her stepping in this new venture.
Back when Sofia Vergara was still seeing his ex-fiancé, Nick Loeb, Joe Manganiello was already floored for her. Back in 2014, they both met at White House Correspondents’ dinner. Modern Family’s Mitchell Jesse Tyler Ferguson acted as a cupid between them and told Joe that his friend “Sofía wanted to come over and say hi.” Rest is history!
Joe once very sweetly described his first reaction about Sofia on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, “She was wearing this dress that looked great on her, and I just could not take my eyes off of her.” It was just three weeks later when Sofia ended her relationship with her ex Nick.
As per a report published on Good Housekeeping, Joe revealed, “I hit up Jesse Tyler Ferguson and said, ‘Hey man, was she broken up with the guy at the time?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I wouldn’t have tried to pull anything if that wasn’t the case.’ I said, ‘Man, well, I don’t know what kind of emotional state she’s in, but tell her I want to take her out.”
In the same report, joe also said, “She had just gotten out of a relationship and I knew that she wanted to be single. But we knew right away, and she knew she was screwed. I said to her, ‘If you need to be single, go do it and do it now if that’s what you need to do,’ and she didn’t. She tried to stay away from actors and I tried to stay away from actresses as much as possible, because of the fear of being away from each other.”
Talking about his romantic proposal, he told Haute Living, “I had a whole speech prepared in Spanish. I proposed to her on one knee in Spanish with the sun going down. It was awesome.”
