Sofia Vergara isn’t afraid to spill a few secrets about her husband Joe Manganiello.

The Modern Family actress walked the red at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, where she dished on Manganiello’s favorite hobby … and let’s just say he has a lot in common with the kids from Stranger Things.

“He’s a nerd,” she said on the E! red carpet show. “The highlight of his life is playing Dungeons & Dragons.”

And though Vergara said she never partakes in the gaming sessions, she does supply her husband with a few treats.
