    Another one of "True Blood's" brooding shapeshifters is getting hitched.

    Joe Manganiello, the hunky heartthrob who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux, popped the question to his model/actress girlfriend Audra Marie while vactioning in Italy, reports People.

    The couple met in 2009 at a Super Bowl party, but Manganiello says that he didn't win her heart right away.

    "She wouldn't go out with me for six months," Manganiello said in an interview with the magazine back in September. "We started dating a few months before I got cast [on "True Blood"]."

    The 33-year-old actor gushed about his new bride to be, saying that she's a "great dresser," among other things.

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

    For her part, Marie says that she loves his "sense of humor, his work ethci and how humble he is with everything that has gone on."

    No wedding date has been set.
