Joe Manganiello Was 'Nervous' About Proposing to Sofia Vergara - Get Details on the Proposal!

News of Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello‘s surprise engagement caused a ton of excitement on the Internet – and now more details are emerging about the Hawaiian proposal.

“He said he wanted to keep it private just in case she didn’t say yes,” a source told People of the 38-year-old actor’s proposal. “It actually didn’t seem like he was joking about that. He did seem genuinely nervous that maybe this wasn’t going to go well. He said this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with a one-in-a-million woman.”

“This wasn’t spontaneous. Joe definitely planned ahead and contacted the hotel weeks in advance to discuss certain things he wanted to do,” the source added. “He didn’t want to propose in a public setting, even though there are so many beautiful spots on the hotel grounds that have spectacular views and are well-known as places where people pop the question. But Joe said he didn’t want to risk anyone walking by and witnessing it, and he didn’t want to tip off Sofia by having security there shooing people away.”

The source continued that Joe and Sofia “weren’t seen around the hotel much on Christmas Day, which many took to mean they were busy … celebrating.” Congrats again to the happy couple!

    No disrespect, and I wish them the best, but knowing someone for under a year, really only 5 to 6 months tops, when both are on their best behavior, isn’t giving either enough time to be seen in enough circumstances which are vital to both for longevity. So many things need to line up. Men take a much longer time to emotionally connect and bond with a woman, and that is usually about a year into a relationship. Best of luck!

    I am happy for them, but i agree with you!

  • Gina

    Wow, they really took this PR stunt a bit further, didn’t they?

  • laura

    I agree. They seem really loving with each other, but this is waaaay too
    rushed, especially since when they started dating (merely 5 months ago), Sofia had just broken up with her then fiancé.
    even if Joe was emotionally ready for a serious relationship, Sofia
    certainly wasn’t, having just exited another very serious one.
    I do wish them the best, but when things are this rushed they almost never work.
    it is true that Kaley Cuoco is still with her husband after a year of
    marriage, even if they got engaged just after a month and a half of
    dating, so who knows.

    why do you believe it is a PR stunt. My goodness, just because they work infront of a camera does not mean they stop living life. I don’t know your age but most normal people date for a short time now a days and get engaged or move in together.

  • Gina

    Oh, give me a break & get your head out of the clouds (no pun intended sky). They play their relationship out in front of the public. Public declarations on social media, talking to the press, pap photos etc.

    Let’s see if they can stay engaged for another 5 months. I mean that. Wish them well, but all ‘public’ notations about each other are all physical-based. He’s too handsome, her body, etc. Telling.

    Plus, someone said she’d just broken up with someone so this makes him her rebound guy. I like Joe, don’t know him but think he’s talented and could go far and has started to, so would hate to see him get hurt. Shut down, turn hard like some men do.
