Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello started dating back in July and in less than six months, the hot couple have got engaged, according to media reports. The 42-year-old gorgeous actress showed off her huge new engagement ring while holidaying in Hawaii on Monday. The couple was celebrating Joe's 38th birthday on the island.

The "Magic Mike" star proposed to the former bikini model on Christmas day, US Magazine reports. Joe popped the question in front of everyone. "He wanted to do it in front of her family," a source close to the couple revealed to the website. The couple has been inseparable since they started dating and even spent the Thanksgiving day with Sofia's family.

Joe, 38, was reportedly "very nervous" about popping the question to Sofia as he was not "100% sure" if she would say yes, People magazine reports. After the couple got engaged, Sofia even posted a cute message on her Instagram profile on Joe's birthday. "Happy happy bday to my love and best friend," wrote Sofia along with a cozy photo of the couple, "to the one that makes me laugh like crazy! have a wonderful year babe!!!"

The Columbian sex symbol started dating Joe just two months after she called off her engagement with her partner of three years Nick Loeb. Sofia was dating Nick since 2010. At the time of her break-up, Sofia said on Twitter that the two ended their relationship because of their busy schedules and how they were unable to spend time with each other. Read more here.

Sofia first met Joe at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington D.C., earlier this year in June. The two started dating each other immediately and were even teased by Sofia's "Modern Family" co-stars on Twitter. The two have been touted as one of the most good looking couples of Hollywood and some website even called the two as the next "Brangelina." This will be the first marriage for Joe but a second for Sofia. She also has a 22-year-old son, Manolo. The representatives of Joe and Sofia are yet to confirm their engagement. The news was first reported by E News.
