Sofia Vergara wants to follow in the footsteps of her “Modern Family” character and become a mommy.
The 40-year-old star revealed to Vogue that she is taking hormone pills and injections to freeze her eggs. Vergara, whose character Gloria recently gave birth on the ABC hit comedy, said she and boyfriend, businessman Nick Loeb, are ready to start a family.
“They want to get as many eggs as they can because usually you produce them, but they’re not good,” she said. “They have to be perfect, perfect, perfect ones. My boyfriend is 37, younger than me, never had kids. So.”
Vergara already has a 21-year-old son, Manolo González, from her previous marriage in Colombia. But her son is ready to have a sibling, she said.
“You know, sometimes he used to scream at me when he was younger, ‘Why can’t you have another baby, so you can stop focusing on me?’” she joked.
The actress also discussed her famous curves and the difficulty of trying to prep for a red carpet event.
“My dresses are like a work of art inside because, you know, I am 40 years old, I had a baby, and I am a 32F boob. And they are real still. When they are fake, you take the bra off and they are still there, perfect! Me—no, so I have to bring them up!” she said.
Vergara, who was the highest paid television actress in 2012, opened up about taking accent classes when she moved to Los Angeles. But as “Modern Family” fans know, it didn’t exactly work.
“I spent so much money, so much time, and then when I would go to auditions I was always thinking about the pronunciation because you are supposed to put the tongue like this or—you know—like this, so then I would forget to act, and I was not getting any jobs, because all I wanted was to say the words right. And then one day I said, You know what? That’s it. If I can’t get a job with my accent, then this is not a job for me,” she said.
