Sofia Vergara will have her family on hand to celebrate her upcoming wedding to Joe Manganiello – her Modern Family, that is. The actress' on-screen husband Ed O'Neill has revealed that he will be attending the wedding, along with the rest of Sofia's Modern Family co-stars.
"Well of course I'm going," he told Entertainment Tonight at the D23 expo. "We're all going!"
The actor, who plays Jay Pritchett in the sitcom, also had nothing but good things to say about his on-screen spouse.

"She's the best. She's absolutely the best. We're all so happy for her. She's the greatest," Ed said.
Sofia and Joe got engaged over Christmas following a whirlwind relationship, and the pair have since been busy planning their big day. While the couple have revealed that their wedding date has been set, they have declined to give away many details except for that it's going to be a very "large" affair.
"I had to invite like all my family and Joe has a lot of friends, so it became bigger and bigger and bigger," Sofia told Ryan Seacrest in May.

Ed O'Neill said he and the Modern Family cast will attend the wedding
Ed is not the first of Sofia's Modern Family colleagues to express their excitement about her wedding; Julie Bowen told HELLO! Online that she is "psyched" to see Sofia's wedding dress, adding that she thinks the couple's big day will be an incredible party.
"Her family is like a party in a can," Julie revealed. "You just unleash the Colombians, and they just do like this mellow shake for like three days going. I'm not kidding you. They're like, 'It's Uncle Nando!' He's like 95, and he never sleeps, and he never stops dancing."
The 45-year-old also approves of Sofia's fiancé, Magic Mike star Joe.
"He's nothing but polite and lovely and more importantly he dotes on her, I love that."
