Magic Mike actor Joe Manganiello is working his, well, magic on a lucky new lady. The True Blood hunk, 37, is dating none other than Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara, multiple sources exclusively tell Us Weekly.
"It's very, very new," one insider says. "They're having fun and getting to know each other." Another source notes that they were introduced at the White House Correspondents Dinner in May, but that Vergara was there with then-fiance Nick Loeb. "That's the first time Sofia and Joe met," the source says.
Recently, though, a connection developed. Manganiello even visited Vergara over the July 4th holiday weekend. (The 41-year-old Colombian actress is currently in the Big Easy filming Don't Mess With Texas with Reese Witherspoon.)
In fact, the new lovebirds -- who met at the White House Correspondents Dinner in May -- were spotted dining together at the Louisiana city's Li'l Dizzy's Cafe on Sunday, July 6, an onlooker tells Us. "They were very friendly and took pictures with other diners," the eyewitness says, adding that they shared a table with some regular patrons since the restaurant was so crowded. During the meal, "they held each other and kissed several times."
