JOE MANGANIELLO TAKING SPANISH LESSONS FOR NEW LOVE SOFIA VERGARA!
Tuesday, Aug 19, 2014
Love is in danger of getting lost in translation for Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara, so the “True Blood” hunk took up Spanish lessons for the Colombian beauty.
The sexy twosome, who’ve been dating since early this summer, are so serious that they’re already discussing having a baby together.
But, a friend of the “Modern Family” actress tells Dish Nation,
“Sofia and Joe are in danger of having a communication breakdown and it’s threatening to derail their romance. Sofia speaks Spanish all the time—to her family, to her household staff, to her friends—and she gets frustrated that Joe doesn’t understand her.” “
Joe is worried that Sofia will say adios to him, so he hired a Spanish language tutor a few weeks ago. He’s undergoing intensive lessons, three times a week, so he can communicate freely with Sofia and her friends and family.” “
She thinks it’s adorable that Joe practices with her gardener and watches TV shows and movies in Spanish, subtitled in English. Her ex-boyfriend”—condiment maker Nick Loeb—“told Sofia that since she’s in America now, she should speak English. So, Joe is a refreshing alternative for Sofia.”
The genetically-gifted Pittsburgh native, 37, was clueless when he met Sofia’s extended family in Miami earlier this summer.
“Sofia’s family was carrying on in Spanish and they’d point to Joe, say something he didn’t understand and then laugh hysterically,” confides the source.
“He was mortified. Joe doesn’t want to be Sofia’s dumb American boyfriend who can’t speak other languages. Just to prove how committed he is to mastering Spanish, Joe is asking Sofia and some of his friends to start referring to him as Jose.”
