Sofia Vergara, who is known for her sexy and feisty character on ‘Modern Family,’ celebrated her 42nd birthday with new boyfriend Joe Manganiello at Nobu Malibu, a sushi restaurant, on Thursday.
The sexy new couple has been recently stirring up headlines with their budding romance, causing many to speculate whether or not the two are in fact an item.
Vergara and Manganiello first met in May at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. At the time, Sofia was engaged to Nick Loeb, but suddenly called off their engagement soon after.
Manganiello, who has been known to be crushing on the actress, declared his infatuation with the bombshell to PEOPLE magazine. Rumors of the two dating began after the duo was spotted dining together at Louisiana city’s Li’l Dizzy’s Café on July 6.
Thanks to Vergara’s niece posting photos of her double date with the famous lovebirds, it is now confirmed that the two are more than just acquaintances. The posted image was captioned with “Bday @sofiavergara @alejandroasen.”
Within the photo the group is seen looking ever so stylish, posing behind Vergara’s delectable chocolate birthday cake and enjoying a few drinks. If the cake wasn’t delicious looking enough, the Latina actress appeared considerably cozy and comfortable with Manganiello, having her arm around the ‘Magic Mike‘ star’s neck and allowing him to caress her waist.
The hot new couple appears to be enjoying one another’s company and seem very happy with one another. It appears that Sofia had an especially delightful birthday with her family and new man, Joe Maganiello.
