Sofia Vergara is one lucky woman.

The 42-year-old Modern Family star's giant engagement ring from fiancé Joe Manganiello got plenty of its own attention at the SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. Her statement bling almost overshadowed her figure-hugging fire engine red Donna Karan gown.

Sofia talked to ET about her engagement on the red carpet, confirming the news for the first time since Joe, 38, reportedly popped the question on Christmas Day.

"I’m so happy," she said. "We're super excited about the future."

As for their sure-to-be star-studded nuptials?

"I think we're going to try to do it sooner than later," Sofia revealed. "It's going to be a lot of people. It has to be a lot of people. We sat down and tried, 'Okay, let's see if we can do like 20 and 20,' and it was impossible."

Hollywood's hottest couple has been dating since July. The two met at the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner in May, when Joe was actually caught red-handed checking out Sofia's butt.

"C'mon you can't put that in front of me. What am I supposed to do? I'm not going to apologize, you know?" he told E! News about the hilarious photo. "I totally got busted. That was actually funny when we first started dating, months after that."
