Apparently, Sofia Vergara has already made quite the impression on her future mother-in-law! Joe Manganiello's mom, Susan, recently opened up about Vergara during an interview about her son which aired on a CBS affiliate in the True Blood actor's hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

"Sofia Vergara is one of the nicest people I've ever met," Manganiello's mom said of her future daughter-in-law. "She has no affectations whatsoever. She's just very nice to everybody."

In fact, the actor's mother has always been a fan of Manganiello and Vergara's relationship, even pushing the Magic Mike star to pop the question. An insider told Us Weekly, "Susan loves that Sofia is a woman with a voice."

Another source, who's close Vergara, told Us Weekly, "[Sofia] knows they haven't been together long. But she's convinced she's found her soulmate."

And it's not just the couple's family who approve of their courtship — Vergara's Modern Family co-stars also give the relationship their seal of approval. "I think they're super hot together," Sarah Hyland told People last year, adding, "they'll have really hot babies."

Manganiello and Vergara were first spotted together last July and got engaged during their Christmas vacation in Hawaii. The pair is also far from shy about expressing their love for one another for the world to see, as Vergara frequently posts pictures of them together on Instagram.

Vergara has a 22 year-old son, Manolo, from her first marriage to Joe Gonzalez, so Manganiello will be taking on the role of stepfather. Manganiello was previously engaged to actress Audra Marie, but they split almost four years ago.
