PUT A RING ON IT! SOFIA VERGARA HOPING FOR MODERN FAMILY

True Blood star Joe Manganiello is wading into marital waters one step at a time, and he started by getting his feet wet earlier this month.

The 38-year-old bachelor bought his Modern Family star girlfriend, Sofia Vergara, a pretty $700 ‘getting ready to get engaged’ ring at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills — with a promise to kick it up a notch after the holidays, Dish Nation is exclusively reporting.

“Joe is head over feels in love with Sofia, but they have only been dating for a little over six months,” a source said.

“So he’s taking his time.”

Vergara was married at just 18 to her high school sweetheart and although the marriage was short-lived, the couple had a son, Manolo, who is now 22.

In 2012 Sofia then became engaged to entrepreneur Nick Loeb, but that relationship ended in May — only one month before she and Manganiello hooked up.

“Joe would like to wait until they’ve been dating for a year before proposing, just to make sure,” the insider told Dish.

“But Sofia says she’s sure about her feelings and is ready to move forward. In fact, she’s already put her eggs on ice in anticipation of being a mom again.”

The 42-year-old actress was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2000, and froze her eggs last year while engaged to Loeb so she wouldn’t have to rush into motherhood after tying the knot.

But while she can’t wait for Manganiello to pop the question, she’s not putting any pressure on him to make his move.

“Sofia would love for her and Joe to be engaged by Valentine’s Day and married by summer,” said the source.

“She wants to have at least one more child before she gets any older, and Joe agrees that at 38, he’s more than ready to be a dad. Hopefully he’ll be getting down on one knee in the next few months, but in the meantime she’s sporting her new promise ring while she waits for a proposal!”
