The Hollywood couple Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganeillo got engaged this Christmas in Hawaii as Joe proposed to her in private.

The couple were guests at St. Regis Hotel where they were staying at the palatial suite. Although there were several beautiful places where Joe could have proposed, he wanted it to be a private affair.

It seems that the entire thing was meticulously planned by Joe who had called ahead to make arrangements for the big day.

The couple were rarely seen on Christmas and when they did come out, a photographer noticed the big rock on her finger.

The duo made their first appearance as an engaged couple when they attended the New Year’s bash in Las Vegas.

They got engaged after dating for just six months and they simply could not take their eyes off of each other when they attended the party at Planet Hollywood.

The mother of one looked stunning in a beautiful bandage dress while he was a lot more casual wearing a black crew neck shirt.

This marriage will be a second one for Sofia while Joe will be getting hitched for the very first time.

This engagement comes close on the heels of her previous engagement to Nick Loeb which they called off in May post which she fell head over heels for the hunky Joe the following summer.

The couple had first come across each other at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards after which there was no looking back for them.
