The 'Modern Family' actress admits she thinks the couple, who got engaged in December after six months of dating, will either decide to get married in secret or else have a very lavish wedding.

Asked if she knows anything about their nuptials, the 44-year-old star said: "I like to lie about it. People always ask and I think it would be fun if we had a clue, but I don't know if she has a clue...They're either gonna run away and elope or it's gonna be 1,000 people."

Julie also revealed that Sofia has asked her to be a bridesmaid on her big day and joked she's planning to wear a peach "Princess Di, puffy sleeve-type thing."

She told 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show': "She would never allow that but I like to pretend."

The blonde beauty is a big fan of the couple, but thinks they are too beautiful.

After being shown a photograph of them, she said: "Wow, that's not helping to diversify the gene pool, is it? They are pretty."

Sofia recently admitted she and Joe have postponed their wedding due to his upcoming hectic schedule.

The Colombian beauty said: "We wanted to get married this summer, but Joe will be busy working and promoting 'Magic Mike 2'.

"We want to get married at a time when we can get away and make time for a honeymoon. So the wedding will probably be later this year."
