Vergara: I didn’t want to date my fiancé Joe
Sofía Vergara confesses she “didn’t want to go out with” Joe Manganiello at first.
The Modern Family actress first met the 38-year-old True Blood actor in 2014 at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and then he popped the question last December.
But even though they are happily engaged and planning a wedding right now, Sofía didn’t think they would get this far initially.
"I didn’t want to go out with him for a long time because I thought he was too good-looking," she admitted in the October 2015 edition of America’s InStyle magazine. "Like, it's too much work, and I’m older. I’m 43 years old. I don’t want to deal with a guy that every girl is after, you know? But then I gave him a chance. I realised he's not like a typical handsome guy. He's not vain. He's very serious, very straightforward, very easy."
Sofía was married to ex-husband Joe Gonzalez, her high school sweetheart, until they split in 1993, with their relationship producing her only child Manolo.
Many major life-altering events have come as a huge surprise for Sofía, as she never expected her career to take off after starring in a popular Latin American commercial for Pepsi.
"I always wanted to have money and be able to help my family and support my son," she explained. "That was my whole objective since I started work. I wanted to have a business. And then, over time, it became fun."
Sofía is certainly considering having more children with future husband Joe.
But she does not think it can be done alone.
"I’m really borderline at my age to do it," Sofía said. "And if I’m going to do it, I would need a surrogate. I have a fibroid. I don’t even feel it, but supposedly it’s exactly where an egg would get implanted. I don’t have enough eggs left to mess around and try it naturally and see what happens. I’ll need help. But I don’t mind it’s fine."
