Sofia Vergara opens up about being a teenage mother on the cover of September’s Redbook. The Colombian actress had her son, Manolo, when she was 19. “I had the energy for everything,” the now 39-year-old recalls.
Vergara said her current boyfriend, businessman Nick Loeb, wants children, but she confessed to the magazine that she doesn’t even want to think about it. “I would have to get into that mind-set again, the waking up early,” she said. But Vergara said she would eventually have more kids—for love.
Vergara said her son jokes around with her about her accent. “He humiliates me! He doesn’t understand how my accent can get worse and worse. He says, 'It’s not normal. Nobody does that,’” So when the actress was nominated for her first Emmy for her role in ABC’s hit comedy Modern Family back in 2010, she finally got her revenge “I called him and said, 'Right in your face! Even with my accent!’”
