The two went to Italy in vacation when the True Blood actor, 33, decided to ask her to marry him.
It seems they met in 2009 during a Super Bowl party but it wasn’t all about love.
Manganiello revealed in a interview that “She wouldn’t go out with me for six months. We started dating a few months before I got cast [on True Blood].”
He also said about his future wife: “she is a great dresser. She’s gorgeous, and she’s tall. And she’s sweet … nice. And she makes crazy English breakfasts.”
On the other hand, Marie likes about Joe his “sense of humor, his work ethic and how humble he is with everything that has gone on.”
