Sofia Vergara plays the beautiful, spicy, very funnyÂ lady opposite Ed O’Neill on Modern Family, but she has gone through some tough times in her life. She opens up to Parade Magazine aboutÂ overcomingÂ cancer and her brother death, but also her new love, Nick Loeb and possible babies!
After her older brother was murdered, Vergara’s younger brother turned to drugs and alcohol in college.
“He wasn’t ready. He started with alcohol there, then pot, on to cocaine, to crack. Now he’s like another person. To see somebody dying over 10 years, little by little, that’s the worst punishment.”
On dealing with a thyroid cancer diagnosis in 2000:
“I’ve never done drugs or smoked. And I don’t eat red meat. I felt totally healthy, and suddenly they tell me I have cancer? I was scared. I immediately thought of my child [son Manolo, 19].”
On finding love with businessman Nick Loeb:
“We have a very happy relationship. Last year we rented a place for six months in New York. It was the first time that I lived with somebody since I got divorced.”
On starting a modern family of their ownâ€¦?
“Nick wants babies. Imagine me, again with a baby, when Manolo is 20! I guess eventually I’ll do it-for love.”
