Joe Manganiello recovering after surgery

Joe Manganiello is doing well after his recent surgery.

The 'Magic Mike XXL' actor went into hospital last month to have his appendix removed, and doctors were said to be "alarmed" by his condition when he was admitted, with reports that his appendix had burst, but his wife Sofia Vergara says Joe is on the road to recovery.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Sofia said: "He's OK. He had a little problem, but now he's good."

However, she did not confirm exactly what his health problems were.

The 'True Blood' hunk - who had surgery on a torn bicep while shooting 'Magic Mike XXL' - was recently forced to pull out of History Channel series 'Six and it was reported he was unable to cope with the "physical demands of the role" due to a "manageable pre-existing condition".

And last month Sofia and Joe had to axe plans to host a charity event for Stuart House Benefit, a facility which help victims and those affected by sexual abuse.

Fashion designer John Varvatos, who hosted the event, said: "Joe's been a big part of what we've done over the years. He's been a great personal friend. He's been involved in all of our - the last four or five years - our Stuart House events.

"Basically they just couldn't make it because Joe is recovering.

"I don't know a lot about it other than that he's had a little bit of a health problem. We wish him the best. We thank him for all his support that he's given us and, most importantly, to get well soon because he's such a wonderful guy."
