Netflix has NYE Countdown for your kids!


Netflix has created a faux New Year’s Eve countdown starring King Julien, the lemur from the Madagascar films. The three-minute streaming Netflix video helps parents to convince their little ones that 2015 has come, put them to bed and then have a glass of wine and some adult time.

The countdown, which also serves as a promo for the new Netflix show All Hail King Julien, has upbeat music and dancing animals, so the kiddos are sure to have a blast and get a good night’s sleep!

Sofia Vergara Engaged to Joe Manganiello!

This summer love has gotten serious: Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are set to wed!

The sexy stars got engaged on Christmas Day while vacationing in Hawaii, two sources tell PEOPLE.

Reps for Vergara and Manganiello have not yet commented, but a source tells PEOPLE that the Magic Mike hunk planned to propose during the trip and was “very nervous” about popping the question: “He wasn’t 100 percent sure she would say yes.”

But on Dec. 25, nearly six months after they started dating, a joyful Vergara was photographed relaxing by the pool wearing a gorgeous diamond ring


Vergara, 42, posted a sweet message to Instagram on Sunday to celebrate Manganiello’s turning 38 during their island getaway.

“Happy happy bday to my love and best friend,” she captioned a cozy photo of the couple, “to the one that makes me laugh like crazy! have a wonderful year babe!!!”

As for Manganiello, he’d had a crush on the Modern Family star since they met at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in May – when she was on the arm of ex-fiancé Nick Loeb.

“She’s got the curves, she’s got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous,” he confessed to PEOPLE for July’s Hottest Bachelors issue. “Naturally beautiful. She’s feisty!”

That month, they became an item, and their romance has been heating up ever since.

This will be the first marriage for Manganiello and second for Vergara, who has a 22-year-old son, Manolo.

E! News was the first to report the engagement.
