"Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara appeared on "The Meredith Vieira Show" on Thursday where she talked about the real reason why and how her boyfriend, Joe Manganiello, fell in love with her.

Vergara talked about the time Manganiello was photographed looking at her butt at the White House Correspondence Dinner back in May, according to US Weekly.

At that time, the two weren't officially a couple yet but that's what officially broke the ice for what could be her best relationship yet.

"It was really funny because I didn't know that had happened until I started really going out with him. Somebody sent me the pictures and I confronted him about it and he was like, 'Yeah, I can't excuse myself. I was there,'" Vergara told the talk show host.

Vergara officially got together with Manganiello in July after splitting from Nick Loeb in May.

"I didn't know he was behind me! It was funny. It broke the ice. After that, we started talking, like, you know," Vergara added.

When the talk show host asked how else did Manganiello fell in love with her, Vergara was firm in saying that her smell is something he finds irresistible, E! News reported.

"That's all I wear, perfume. That's how I got Joe Manganiello to be in love with me," the actress teased.

Vergara also revealed that Manganiello is obsessed with her scent, Sofia by Sofia Vergara, the same publication noted.

"He smelled me and he couldn't help himself. That's all you need, if you want Joe," she said on "Good Morning America."

Meanwhile, despite their recent breakup, Vergara was spotted hugging her ex-fiance Loeb on the streets of New York City.

A source confirmed the news to US Weekly but stressed that the meet up was strictly platonic. "Sofia and Nick are still friends. There wasn't anything romantic about their meeting nor was it a secret that they met up."
