How old is Sofia Vergara? Vergara is 40 years old—not that the Colombian actress and model looks it. Born July 10, 1972 in Barranquilla, Colombia, Sofia studied to be a dentist, of all things, before getting into showbiz. In the late ‘90s, she co-hosted the travel show Fuera de Serie—translation: “Out of the Ordinary” or “Over the Top”—which was broadcast throughout the Latin world on Univision. She soon caught the eye of American viewers and embarked on an impressive film and TV career. In 2012, as one of the stars of the hit ABC comedy “Modern Family,” she topped Forbes’ list of the highest-paid TV actress in the United States.
The still-foxy 40-year-old has appeared in such films as “The Three Stooges” (2012), “The Smurfs” (2011), “Madea Goes to Jail” (2009), and “Soul Plane” (2004). Since 2009, Vergara has played Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family”. The role has earned her numerous accolades, including three Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and two Golden Globe nods for Best Supporting Actress—Series, Miniseries or Television Film. While she’s yet to win either prize, she has two Screen Actors Guild trophies for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

At 40, Sofia is just getting going, and in July 2012, she got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Nick Loeb. When they tie the knot, it’ll mark Vergara’s second marriage, as she wed childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez when she was 18. That brief union produced a son, Manolo Gonzalez. The 19-year-old made headlines for posting a YouTube video of his mother’s 40th birthday party—a blowout that included Loeb popping the question.
