Vergara and Manganiello had a whirlwind romance before tying the knot, according to Entertainment Tonight. They met and started dating in 2014. After just six month, the “True Blood” actor and “America’s Got Talent” judge got engaged. They married on Nov. 22, 2015.
Manganiello met Vergara at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in May 2014. It was a love at first sight, but he didn’t make any move because she was engaged to Nick Loeb at the time. He was caught checking Vergara’s famous derriere at the Bloomberg & Vanity Fair Cocktail after-party that night.
“I totally got busted. That was actually funny when we first started dating, months after that,” he said. “We had talked, I guess, or kinda bumped into each other but we didn’t start dating until she was single. She had a boyfriend at that time.”
Meanwhile, for Vergara’s part, she thought Manganiello was too good looking. She was initially hesitant to go out with him on a date when she became single, but her perception about the “Magic Mike” star changed when she started going out with him.
“I didn’t want to go out with him for a long time because I thought he was too good-looking. Like, it’s too much work, and I’m older. I’m 43 years old. I don’t want to deal with a guy that every girl is after, you know?” she told InStyle Magazine in 2015. “But then I gave him a chance. I realized he’s not like a typical handsome guy. He’s not vain. He’s very serious, very straightforward, very easy.”
