Though we’re bummed the super-hot werewolf is off the market, we’re happy he found the love of his life!
Congrats to True Blood star Joe Manganiello on his engagement to actress/model Audra Marie! Joe got down on one knee and asked Audra to marry him while the two were on vacation in Italy, Joe’s reps confirm. Joe, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on the HBO hit series, originally met Audra at a party for the 2009 Super Bowl. It was love at first sight — at least for Joe!
“She wouldn’t go out with me for six months,” Joe tells People. “We started dating a few months before I got cast [on True Blood].”
Joe admits that what he loves about Marie is that she’s “a great dresser. She’s gorgeous, and she’s tall. And she’s sweet … nice. And she makes crazy English breakfasts.”
Marie returns his affections. She’s attracted to Joe because of “his sense of humor, his work ethic and how humble he is with everything that has gone on.”
Aww! Even though this means that another hot bachelor is off the market, we’re super excited for Joe and Marie!
