“Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara - America’s best paid TV actress - and Joe Manganiello of “True Blood” fame plan to tie the knot, US media has reported.

Colombian-born bombshell Vergara, 42, has been dating the American actor, 38, for six months since breaking off a relationship with businessman Nick Loeb. A spokesperson for Vergara, famous for playing Gloria Delgado on the Emmy-winning series, did not immediately confirm People magazine’s report that the couple became engaged over Christmas in Hawaii. Manganiello - known for playing Alcide in “True Blood” and for stripping off in Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike” - recently produced a documentary on a male strip club.
