Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got engaged over Christmas, and while their excitement is no doubt palpable, how do you suppose the Modern Family star's ex-fiancee, Nick Loeb, is feeling since hearing the big announcement?

Surprisingly, Loeb reacted with nothing but kindness and grace.

“She is beautiful and majestic and therefore to be loved,” he said during an interview with Us Weekly. “Beyond all else in life she deserves happiness, the kind that only true love can bring.”

Not many exes would react in such a humble, gracious manner.

It was only eight months ago when Nick Loeb and Sofia Vergara parted ways. Just two months later she started dating the True Blood star. And on Christmas Day, with their families present, Manganiello popped the question. The whole extended family was together in Hawaii celebrating his 38th birthday.

“He wanted to do it in front of her family,” a source said.

“Sofia was staring at her hand at the pool and couldn’t stop smiling. The ring is giant and very sparkly. It stands out from a mile away and is hard to miss. She and Joe are crazy about each other!” another source shared.

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have reportedly enjoyed every day since becoming engaged, celebrating their engagement and their family ties, at the luxurious St. Regis Princeville Resort in Kauai.

“It was one celebration after the next and they had family around to make it even more special,” the source adds. “They told the staff at the hotel it was a trip of a lifetime and one they will never forget.”

No wedding date has yet been divulged to the media. How long do you suppose it might be before Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello tie the knot?

And how do you suppose Nick Loeb really feels? Is he genuinely happy for the couple or simply behaving in a most gentlemanly manner?
