Are Sofia Vergara and fiancé Joe Manganiello planning a family?

“My son, Manolo, is 23 years old, which is going to be really weird if I have another baby,” the Modern Family star tells Vanity Fair for its May cover story, out April 14. “But, you know, Joe wants babies and if it’s going to make him super-happy, then …”

And is there anything the sexy actress, 42, would change about PEOPLE’s former reigning Hottest Bachelor?

“There’s nothing about him I’d change other than the fact that he’s four years younger than me,” Vergara says of the Magic Mike XXL star, 38, who she felt was too good-looking for her in the beginning.

“The day that I sent the press release [announcing the breakup with ex-fiancé Nick Loeb], Joe immediately contacted Jesse Tyler Ferguson, like, ‘Please, please, please tell her I want her number,’ ” Vergara recalls. “And I’m like, ‘Jesse, no, he’s too handsome.’ ”

Continues Vergara: “Then, after two days of Jesse trying to convince me, I’m like, ‘Okay, give him my number.’ I’m thinking, I’m in New Orleans shooting, and he’s in L.A. Nothing’s going to happen. But we started talking a lot, and then he showed up in New Orleans. Since then we ve been inseparable.”

In a video interview on VF.com, Vergara jokes that Manganiello might have had some competition if she were still a teenager.

“I grew up with a poster of Johnny Depp on top of my bed,” she laughs.
