The 42-year-old actress, who has a son with her high-school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez, said she would to like to have an early baby, reported E!Online.

"Joe is younger than me. He's 38. He's never had kids. How am I going to say no? I tell him if we're going to do this, we have to do it, like, now, because I don't want to be 50 with a baby," she said.

Sofia Vergara said life has never been better since she met Manganiello last year. "I finally realized that relationships don't need to be so much work. Ever since we met, it's been so easy.

I'm very suspicious. I'm like, 'It's not normal that we've been together for nine months and we haven't had a big fight or anything,'" she added.
