Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are planning a "summer wedding".

The 42-year-old actress and model got engaged to the 'True Blood' star on December 25 and Joe is reportedly keen to tie the knot as soon as they can.

A source close to the actor revealed: "Joe is already talking about having a huge summer wedding.

"[They] want to have the wedding this summer because they want to have a baby together, but he wants to wait until she is his wife."

Joe, in particular, is said to be incredibly excited that two of his "dreams" are coming true.

The source continued: "This is all a first for Joe. He has never been married before and has never been a father, but these are two huge dreams of his that are finally coming true. He says that he owes all of this to his sobriety."

Sofia already has Manolo from her first marriage and the 22-year-old and her fiancé are getting on well.

The source shared: "Manolo already looks at Joe like a father-figure.

"Joe gets along great with him and is going to be an amazing dad."

The couple is also reportedly planning to buy a new house together "to support their growing family" and the 38-year-old actor hopes he can get stuck in with the wedding planning.

The source added to "Joe is currently is working on a couple of projects, but says that he is going to take some time off in the near future to plan this wedding because he wants to be very involved in the process."
