Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello host intimate engagement party

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello celebrated their impending nuptials by hosting an engagement party on Friday night. The couple were joined by their closest friends and family members for an intimate dinner at Soho House in Hollywood.

The Modern Family star's 21-year-old son documented the night on Instagram, sharing a photo of the group watching Arnold Schwarzenegger give a toast to the happy couple.

Manolo poked fun at the attractive pair, writing: "Congratulations to these two ugly people. It's so sad, but luckily they have me to aspire to, physically. #Congration #YouDoneIt #HappiestCoupleEver #EngagementParty #PapaJoeVolume2 #TerminatorGaveASpeech #HostedByBarryPeele."

Meanwhile Sofia also shared a series of photos from the night, including one of herself with her husband-to-be.

"Gracias again @barrypeele #engagement party. @joemanganiello," she captioned the image.

Sofia and Joe got engaged in December after a whirlwind romance. The 42-year-old actress recently revealed that they have set a date for their wedding and said it would be a big celebration.

"Yeah we have a date," Sofia told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show. "It was kind of difficult because we're both working, and you never know what's going to come in our work. But we had to stick to it because it was impossible to book a place with short notice."

While she did not reveal the wedding date, Sofia did admit that the guest list would be "large".

"I had to invite like all my family and Joe has a lot of friends, so it became bigger and bigger and bigger," she said.

Wedding planning will come as a welcome distraction for Sofia, who has been embroiled in a battle with her ex Nick Loeb over embryos they created while they were still together.

The actress recently broke her silence on Nick's fight to use the embryos and become a single parent, stating that his lawsuit "makes no sense".

A child "needs a loving relationship of parents that get along, that don't hate each other," she said during an interview with Howard Stern.

"I don't hate him but obviously he has a problem. A kid needs parents. I wouldn't want to bring kids to the world where it's already set against them. It would be so selfish."
