Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are by far Hollywood's hottest couple.

So, it was only a matter of time before these two gorgeous people grazed the cover of a magazine together. 

The actress and her hubby posed for their first joint magazine cover with Hola! USA, where they opened up about their love life and the criticism Sofia often faces.

The couple, who tied the knot in a lavish wedding back in November 2015, gave fans an exclusive look at their new L.A. home.

¡Qué lindos! 

When asked about their quick relationship, the "Magic Mike" star assured that though they got engaged after less than a year of dating – followed by a short engagement – he knew Sofia was the one.

Manganiello told Hola! USA that it didn't take long before he realized he wanted to spend the rest of his life with the brunette beauty:
We realized very early on that we each had to put the other person's happiness and well-being ahead of our own. Once you realize that kind of trust has manifested, you hang on for dear life. Or in my case, you go and buy a ring.

And while Vergara also felt an instant connection, she waited until her son, Manolo, left for college to move in Manganiello.

Vergara revealed she was always wary of bringing a guy into her home because of her son:
Partly because I hadn't found the right person and I knew that if I moved in with someone, it would have a psychological effect on my son. I wasn't going to bring a man into my son's home. I think that's why I always wanted long-distance relationships, with men in other countries.

Vergara also took the opportunity to address critics of her role as Gloria Pritchett on "Modern Family," who accused her of perpetuating certain stereotypes about Latin women.


During the interview, the Colombian actress was quick to defend her TV character: 
What's wrong with being a stereotype? Gloria's character is inspired by my mom and my aunt. They are both Latin women who grew up in Colombia, like me. They love color, prints, and shoes. ... It upsets me when Latinos complain about Gloria. I am grateful for the opportunity because the gringos have let me in with this strong accent I have. Eight years ago, nobody had an accent like this on television.

While accepting the award for Favorite Comedic TV actress at the 2017 People’s Choice Award, the 44-year-old actress also defended her portrayal of Gloria.

Vergara told the audience that taking on the role of Gloria on the ABC sitcom eight years ago "has opened so many doors for other Latin actors, and we need so much more doors to be open, but I am thankful! Please be giving us opportunities because we will not disappoint you."

And if that wasn't revealing enough, her hubby and former "True Blood" heartthrob opened up about his secret hobby collecting art. Can this man be more perfect!!?


The art aficionado talked about helping decorate the walls of their new home: 

I have always made it a habit of going to art galleries and openings. Some of my friends are some of the biggest artists working today, and others have made careers of collecting and dealing art. So when it came to decorating the new house, along with the works I had collected over the years, I had new paintings/works commissioned.

We couldn't be happier for Sofia and Joe. Congrats on the beautiful spread!
