In an interaction with Haute Living in 2015, Joe told “Our first date was her giving me every reason why it would never work out.

When you know, you know, and we knew right away—like, very quickly.”

Manganiello continued, “We had this big bay window [that I opened up], and the sun was going down pink over the mountains and over the bay, and I had this ring.
