LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Modern Family star Sofia Vergara - America's best paid TV actress - and Joe Manganiello of True Blood fame plan to tie the knot, United States media reported Monday.

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 spokesman 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.
