'True Blood''s Joe Manganiello Engaged! We Let Out A Collective Sigh!

Joe ManganielloAnother one bites the dust! Stephen Moyer made Anna Paquin an honest woman earlier this summer, and now Joe Manganiello plans on tying the knot too! So until Alexander Skarsgård puts a ring on Kate Bosworth's finger, he's our last hope!

People.com confirms that the sexy "True Blood" star has popped the question to his lady love, actress/model Audra Marie. And she said yes! Sigh. The pair met in 2009 at a Super Bowl party, and she didn't make it easy for one of TV's hottest werewolves!

"She wouldn't go out with me for six months. We started dating a few months before I got cast [on 'True Blood']," he recalled. So why is Audra the one? "[She's] a great dresser. She's gorgeous, and she's tall. And she's sweet...nice. And she makes crazy English breakfasts."

The pair has yet to set a wedding date, though E! Online seems to have some details on the proposal. Joe popped the big question while on vacation in Italy earlier this month, and if we had known then what we know now, it would explain why he wrote all those super-sweet tweets about his time abroad!

"I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts," Joe gushed about his future bride. "And I did. From there she's just unbelievably understanding and compassionate and patient from all the craziness that comes from this job and lifestyle."
