“I’m very happy romantically,” Sofia tells PEOPLE. “It couldn’t be better!”
“You know, I’m just having a great time and it’s a special time in my life and I’m trying not to think too much about it,” she continued. “It’s something very new, so we will see what happens.”
Asked by Extra whether her family approved of the relationship, she said, “What is there not to approve of?”
She added of Modern Family, “I have a television show that has been successful for the past five years. And it’s allowed me to do all the things I’ve wanted to do with my career. It’s been a lot of fun these past five years.”
Earlier this week, Joe was photographed holding a bunch of roses. Soon after, Sofia shared a photo of herself holding the same flowers on Instagram with the caption “Just what I needed today.”
Previously, it was reported that there’s a “big mutual attraction”, they’re considering getting engaged and unfreezing Sofia’s eggs so they can have a baby together, and they’ve addressed their differences and made it work.
Although, according to tabloid sources, the couple began their relationship by having an affair.
