When the host asked Manganiello how life was like with Vergara her immediately praised her saying, “I couldn’t have had a better quarantine partner. I am lucky, we laugh all day long, every day, we have a great time. So as funny as you think she is, she is that way at home too. So we just have a great time, it’s been tolerable,” he quipped. Manganiello also shares his love with their adopted 4 pound Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix named Bubbles. He explained that she was brought to them by Dogs Without Borders and Bubbles was sick at the time with 11 bladder stones and cysts that they thought maybe cancerous.

Manganiello admitted the dog was Vergara‘s decision,“I didn’t want a dog,” he explained “but of course I walked into the room, the dog perked up, looked at me, came running over at me jumping like ‘pick me up, pick me up’ growling a the people of the shelter like ‘go away I found Da Da, so go leave’ and that’s how its been ever since.”


He took Bubbles to a surgeon the next day and said, “whatever you got to do, I don’t care how the stones got there, get them out, cut around the cyst, make sure you get rid of all the cancerous tissues, regardless, I’m just going to take care of this dog.” The Justice League actor signed the adoption papers while she was in surgery and said she’s the light of their life.
