"I haven't started planning anything because everything has been very recent," the actress explained. "I just planned a very big birthday - my 40th birthday in Mexico."

It was at this birthday celebration that Loeb proposed to Vergara. The 36-year-old Loeb reportedly popped the question while the actress and her family and friends were sightseeing at the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza.

She told Celebuzz she is still is unsure of when the wedding will be.

"I am kind of, you know, working a lot - I just started the 'Modern Family' season - so I don't know yet [when I will get married]. No plans."

Vergara was previously married to her childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez. They split in 1993 and have a 20-year-old son, Manolo.

She said at a recent promotional appearance for Diet Pepsi that she could see herself having another child.

"I't something that day I'll do again. I wouldn't mind," the Emmy-nominated actress said, according to the site.
