Sofia Vergara. biography
Sofía Margarita Vergara was born on July 10, 1972, in Barranquilla, Colombia and first received a lot of attention as a TV personality during the late 1990s. She turned into a true actress, based on Hollywood's guidelines, after landing a role in Big Trouble (2002) with Tim Allen and appearing as one of Thomas Fuentes' many girlfriends in Chasing Papi (2003). Hollywood then converted the hot new star into a big-screen magnet with performances in the biopic Lords of Dogtown (2005) and the crime drama Four Brothers (2005).
Between 2008 and 2009, Sofía made her blockbuster debut in Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns - Perry enjoyed Sofía's vivacious personality and offered her a role in his next film Madea Goes to Jail. She later popped her Broadway cherry as Mama Morton in Chicago and attained her big break playing the overly sexy, full of attitude Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC's comedy series Modern Family.
The show was immediately embraced by viewers and critics, which resulted in multiple Emmy Awards. Sofía gained popularity for her depiction of a fiery Latin woman and earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2010, 2011 and 2012, followed closely by a Golden Globe and three Screen Actors Gild Award nominations.
Later that year, Sofía made her voice-over introduction as Carmen in the animated comedy Happy Feet 2 (2011) and further honed her new voice-over craft as Odile in the animation film The Smurfs (2011). She closed out the busy year with a role in New Year's Eve (2011) with a star-filled cast, including Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro and Halle Berry.
Sofía's most recent films include, the comedy The Three Stooges (2012), Robert Rodriquez's action film Machete Kills (2013) alongside Mel Gibson, and the comedy Fading Gigolo (2013) opposite Woody Allen.
Sofia Vergara Boyfriend, Fiance & Dating History
1991 - 1993
At the age of 18, Sofía married her high school sweetheart Joe Gonzalez and welcomed their son Manolo on September 16, 1992. Once Sofia's career emerged, however, the two began straying from each other due to her busy schedule and constant traveling, which ultimately resulted in an amicable divorce. When asked by Florida's Sun-Sentinel about being a single mother following their split, Sofía responded, "My life as a mother has been hard, but not a nightmare," she tells Florida's Sun-Sentinel of single motherhood. "I do like all working moms do. No life is perfect. What I do, it's part of life."
Sofía and British singer Craig David had a short and nice romance, which ended amicably. Reportedly, Craig once opened up about their relationship, saying, "We went out for a while, but she was in LA and I was traveling the world, so things didn't work out."
January 2005 - March 2005
According to sources, Sofía and Tom Cruise first met at a party thrown by Will Smith and secretly dated for several moths after their heart-pounding encounter. Reps from both sides never commented on the rumor.
Rumors that Sofía and Tyrese Gibson were dating erupted after the two co-starred in Four Brothers together as boyfriend and girlfriend. They were later spotted going out to lunch on multiple occasions and reportedly caught dancing together at the cast party. The two never commented and the rumors ultimately vanished when the film was completed.
Sofía and actor Donald Logue arrived hand-in-hand to the Ghost Rider premiere in February 2007. They were rarely seen out together, which led to the conclusion that the romance barely flourished.
May 2010 - Present
Sofía and politician Nick Loeb first met in 2010 and were seen together on many occasions in L.A. following their introduction. In July 2012, the couple announced their engagement.
