Joe Manganiello and Audra Marie A lot of gay guys and straight single ladies will be howling at the moon: Joe Manganiello has been taken off the market.

The "True Blood" werewolf has popped the question to his actress girlfriend, Audra Marie.

In August he told the Ministry that Marie would be the first to know of his marital intentions; People first reported the happy news Thursday.

"She wouldn't go out with me for six months," Manganiello recalled to the mag, saying the pair took up shortly before he was cast on Alan Ball's mystical hit show.

He describes the blond as "a great dresser."

"She's gorgeous, and she's tall. And she's sweet ... nice. And she makes crazy English breakfasts."

The pair have yet to set a date.
