    Apparently we all should have seen it coming from the look Joe Manganiello was giving Sofía Vergara as she was going.

    In honor of Hollywood's hottest new coupling, let's take a moment to examine this photo taken in May at the Bloomberg & Vanity Fair cocktail reception following the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner in May.

    Lest our eyes deceive us, that's Joe checking out Sofía's impressive behind as she has a laugh with her Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who was quick to joke after the romance news broke that he got to date Joe first.

    And why wouldn't Manganiello have snuck a peek? Vergara's butt is amazing!

    The gorgeous actors also posed for a regular photo together, but Vergara was still with fiancé Nick Loeb at the time. Joe hung out that night with a male friend.

    E! News confirmed last week that Sofía and Joe had recently started dating and then they were spotted having dinner together in New Orleans, where she's been shooting an as-yet-untitled comedy with Reese Witherspoon. A source tells us that she and Joe seemed to have eyes for each other all the way back at the WHCD (and we can see that at least half of that is certainly the case).

    Sofía, who is currently on the big screen in Chef, flew back to Los Angeles yesterday, on what happened to be her 42nd birthday. And while we wait for the next sighting of her with the True Blood hunk, there's this instant-classic pic.

    Happy #FlashbackFriday!
