After reaching a point in their personal and professional life where they feel safe, some women make the decision to have a family. They believe that couples should put off having children until they are emotionally and financially prepared to do so.
Others, on the other hand, may be forced to have a family at a far younger age, as was the case with the actress Sofa Vergara, who gave birth to Manolo when she was just 19 years old.
The actress who plays Gloria on Modern Family was able to raise her kid on her own while focusing on her career aspirations because she put in a lot of effort, put in a lot of hard work, and loved her son.
Between the years 1991 and 1993, Sofa Vergara was married to Joe Gonzalez.
This relationship resulted in the birth of the actress’s first son, Manolo, when the young actress was only 19 years old.
After her marriage to Gonzalez ended in divorce, Sofa devoted her whole focus to her career as a musician and to raising their little son, making certain that he was never without everything that he need.
“Because I was so young when I divorced his father, I did my best to give him the greatest possible upbringing by showing him positive role models and making sure he had all he needed.
When I hear compliments on how well-behaved, charming, clever, and well-mannered he is, it makes all of the sacrifices worth it,” says Sofia.
She freely confesses that if Manolo had been born 10 years later, things would have been much simpler; yet, she does not feel any remorse for having children at such a young age.
When Sofa’s son was a very young child, she was required to drop him off with his grandma so that she could go to work, and she detested the fact that she had to do it on a regular basis. The entertainment business has been kind to Sofa during the course of his long and fruitful career there.
Manolo’s career as a model and actor in Colombia took off when he was older, and he became very successful.
As a result of the tv program Fuera de Serie that aired on Telemundo in 1995, Sofia was able to go across the world with Fernando Fiore. After, she appeared in movies such as Chasing Papi, Four Brothers, and the evergreen romantic comedy Hot Pursuit, amongst other films.
She was also cast in recurring parts on numerous popular television shows, including Family Guy and Modern Family, among others
The relationship between Manolo and Sofa is really close. They have been together through every single phase of their lives and have experienced many of life’s most significant milestones together as a result.
The star was there to celebrate her son’s graduation with her child, and she was beaming with pride and happiness at his academic accomplishments.
When the young guy’s mother was married to Joe Manganiello, it was the young man who was the one who carried his mother down the aisle.
As Sofia wrapped up shooting her episode of the comedy Modern Family, Manolo remained by her side throughout the process.
On his Instagram feed, he went so far as to write, “11 years, 250 episodes, and I could not be prouder of the history-making work you’ve done! I’m excited to read the next one in the series, especially since this one is coming to a close,” he remarked.
