The actress was just included in PEOPLE's 2016 Most Beautiful special issue and she spoke all about the struggle of being a single mom to son Manolo Gonzalez. She also opened up about being practically a teen parent. 

"I was really young when I divorced his father, so I raised him trying to set the best example and give him the best that I could," she said. "When people compliment me on him, on how well mannered, how charming, funny and well-behaved he is, it makes all the sacrifices worthwhile." 

Vergara married her high school sweetheart, Joe Gonzalez, when she was 18 and the couple had their son two years later. They split shortly after that. 

"Every time people compliment me about my son, Manolo, it is very rewarding," Vergara said. 

The 43-year-old has done a great job with her son. He recently graduated from Emerson College and was right by her side when she married actor Joe Manganiello
