“She is beautiful and majestic and therefore to be loved,” the Onion Crunch entrepreneur told Us. “Beyond all else in life she deserves happiness, the kind that only true love can bring.”

Fast-foward to Christmas day and Manganiello was popping the question to Vergara, who, along with their families, were in Hawaii celebrating the holiday and Manganiello’s 38th birthday.

“He wanted to do it in front of her family,” a source told Us of the Magic Mike actor's Dec. 25 proposal. 

According to an eyewitness, after accepting her massive new bling, “Sofia was staring at her hand at the pool and couldn’t stop smiling. The ring is giant and very sparkly. It stands out from a mile away and is hard to miss. She and Joe are crazy about each other!”
