Update: ET Canada’s Sangita Patel caught up with Sofia Vergara’s co-star Julie Bowen and asked her thoughts on the new couple! “I have never met him. I saw him certainly and he does not hurt my eyes,”; says Bowen, adding “You know it almost is like a genetic explosion and there might not be enough diversity in the gene pool because they are just too good looking. But ya know God bless her, she’s amazing and if he’s nice to her I am all for it.”;

Sofia Vergara celebrated her 42nd birthday alongside friends, family and her new rumoured boyfriend, Joe Manganiello.

The Modern Family star flashed her trademark smile while cozying up for a photo with the True Blood actor at the celeb hotspot Nobu Malibu. The love between the couple is undeniable as they wrap their arms around each other for the special moment.

The actress celebrated the occasion on July 10, over what was sure to be a sumptuous dinner, with a glass of champagne, decadent looking chocolate cake and celebratory balloons.

Vergara’s niece, Claudia Vergara, posted the snap to her Instagram account on Friday along with a second photo of the Modern Family vixen and her look-a-like niece embracing each other for the camera.

Vergara and Manganiello first met at the White House Correspondents Dinner in May while she was still engaged to Nick Loeb.
