Joe Manganiello

Sofia Vergara is "having a great time" with Joe Manganiello.

The 'Modern Family' actress - who split from fiance Nick Loeb in May - has been romancing the 37-year-old hunk since the beginning of July but admits she doesn't know what the future holds for them.

She said: "You know, I'm just having a great time. It's a special time in my life, and I'm trying not to think too much about it. It's something very new, so we will see what happen."

The 42-year-old beauty - who has 22-year-old son Manolo from her marriage to Joe Gonzalez - admitted the 'True Blood' star has already proved to be a hit with her family.

Asked if her mother approved of her new romance when she introduced them in Miami recently, she told 'Extra': "What is there not to approve of?"

Sofia is currently shooting the new season of 'Modern Family' and admitted she campaigns every year for a storyline that would take her back to her home country.

She said: "We have only shot the first episode last week, so we don't really know what's going to happen, but I am always trying to put pressure and hope that before the whole show ends, we can go one time to Colombia so we can meet Gloria's family."
