Julie Bowen is just saying what everyone else is thinking.

The actress joked about Modern Family costar Sofia Vergara and her new beau Joe Manganiello, telling ET Canada the pair are “like a genetic explosion and there might not be enough diversity in the gene pool, because they are just too good looking.”

“But ya know, God bless her, she’s amazing and if he’s nice to her, I am all for it,” she added.

Bowen, 44, has never met Manganiello, but said, “I saw him, certainly, and he does not hurt my eyes.”

Vergara’s 42nd birthday celebration at Nobu Malibu on Thursday included PEOPLE’s Hottest Bachelor, and the pair cozied up for photos taken by a family member.
