The 42-year-old actress - who has a 22-year-old son, Manolo, from a previous relationship - is engaged to the 38-year-old 'True Blood' star and has revealed they'd like to have a baby together.

She shared: "When you're with somebody that hasn't had kids, and you want to start a relationship, of course there's always that question.

"And if it happens, it will be something that will make us very happy, but it's not a priority in our lives."

Sofia also claimed she doesn't fear her fame evaporating, insisting it was never the motivation for her becoming an actress.

She told Cosmo For Latinas magazine: "Sometimes you want fame to go away a little bit, because you want to do normal things. I think I'm old enough that I've already enjoyed all of it, so if it goes away, I think I'm still going to be OK.

"It was never really what I was looking for - it wasn't even being an actress or being famous - it was just supporting myself and making money and doing a business for myself."

Meanwhile, Sofia has blasted her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb for making the dispute over their frozen embryos public.

The actress is upset the issue is being so widely discussed at the same time she is promoting her new movie 'Hot Pursuit'.

She said: "I don't think its fair.

"I've been working very hard for 20 years to get to this point where I am, enjoying my movie.

"I promote all my movies, all my work, but I don't like promoting my private life...

"I don't want to allow this person to take more advantage of my career and try to promote himself and get press for this."
