Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are one of those couples who are just so perfect looking it seems like their personal life must be just as epic as a romantic Hollywood blockbuster. We’re guessing their Saturdays probably consist of dreamy afternoons spent on yachts and their weeknights include Manganiello cooking the most perfect homemade meal our eyes have ever seen. So it makes total sense that when it came time to pop the question, Manganiello didn’t just get down on one knee during a candlelit dinner. Instead, he opted for something a little more dramatic.

The 38-year-old actor was recently a guest on Live! With Kelly and Michael where he shared with the co-hosts exactly what went into his proposal to Sofia. Manganiello shared: “You only get one chance to do it, and if you’re going to do it, you gotta do it right.” He went on to explain that he decided to propose to the Colombian actress in Spanish. Sadly, he didn’t recite the monologue on the show, but he did mention that he told Vergara, “Eres mi todo,” which means, “you are my everything.”

Now, excuse us while we descend back down to our not so magical love life – AKA responding to the dude from Tinder who thinks the food court is a great place for a dinner date…
