The gorgeous Modern Family star sat down with Ellen, and opened up about their move, which was actually going down the day of their interview.
"We’re moving today to a house, actually!" Sofia told Ellen. "We’re doing the move, and it’s been crazy, but I wanted to come, ya know, and see you… I left him unpacking my things."
Sofia and Joe
began dating in July 2014, and the couple got engaged in December.
No wedding date has been announced yet, but they couple's next big step, co-habitation, is underway. However, there have been some challenges.
Specifically, Sofia says Joe reads. A lot. So much so that she doesn't know where to fit his books in the new house.
"He has a lot of books that I don’t know where I’m gonna put," Sofia explained. "He reads everything. It’s like a lot of old books, new books… but they’re driving me crazy because I’m looking for a place to put them."
"We have a wine cellar," Sofia added, "And I said, 'Oh that’s where we should put them. Instead of wine let’s just like put them in the little spaces.'"
When you're moving, it's always the things you least expect that end up being the biggest hurdles. But, as Ellen points out, wherever they're moving has got to have some bookshelves. Or they could buy some shelves because they are both insanely rich, successful actors. But to each their own.
"I had just finished a relationship," Sofia said, referring to her previous engagement to Nick Loeb
. "[Joe] seemed like a lot of work because so handsome and younger than me and, like, so sexy and whatever… And I’m like, 'Ugh. Just too much!' But he convinced me."
So how did the 38-year-old True Blood star convince her? Well, with a little pressure, according to Sofia.
"He flew to New Orleans and forced me on a date," Sofia said, laughing. "He's a great guy, super fun, super normal and we click. Like, it’s super easy to hang out with him."
