Joe Manganiella and Sofia Vergara are one of Hollywood’s most gorgeous couples.
During an interview with Ocean Drive magazine, the “Magic Mike XXL” star said that he believed that they “were put on the planet to be with each other”. He told the magazine, “I just married the girl that I love. That was it.”
Manganiello first got together with the “Modern Family” actress in July 2014. After 6 months of dating, he proposed to her on Christmas Day during a romantic trip to Kauai. In November 2015, the couple tied the knot in a beautiful wedding that was held at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida.
He continued, “From the first date, it was just like, Wow! It was so easy in all the ways that you want it to be easy, and challenging in all of the most fun ways possible. So I knew right away and that was it.”
Aww <3 That definitely gave us major #relationshipgoals.

Although the 40-year-old actor has been acting in films and television series since 2002, he has never dated a celebrity. So you could say that he was pretty unprepared when they started dating.
“I was never part of a celebrity couple before this, because I never wanted to go through the difficulty that can bring in terms of paparazzi and attention. The 2 of us knew that once it became public that we were together — and we had conversations about how that would change a lot of things, and she is the only woman on the planet that I was willing to go through all of that for. Because she’s the greatest,” he shared.
Manganiello also added that all the pressure brought them closer together and they try to stay as private as they can. He explained, “At the end of the day, it’s really nobody else’s business but ours. It’s just that I love her and she loves me and here we are. And there is a price for that, when living in the public eye.”
The actor will be voicing Hefty Smurf in “Smurfs: The Lost Village” and was cast as Deathstroke in “The Batman” alongside Ben Affleck. Meanwhile, 44-year-old Vergara is currently filming “Modern Family” season 8. Vergara, who is the mother of 24-year-old model Manolo Gonzalez Vergara, was also the highest paid TV actress in 2016.
